Coaches that donate countless hours
to teaching and coaching
As a non-profit 501 C (3) Community Based Youth Traveling Basketball Program, we rely on the support of our community to provide a competitive, developmental and fun basketball experience for kids in Minneapolis that may not otherwise have the opportunity to play organized traveling basketball.
WHAT ARE OUR FUNDS USED FOR?
As a non-profit we rely on generous donations from our families and supporters to keep our registration fees low. With a mission to provide & create basketball opportunities that build both a foundation of skills and also a lifelong love for the game, the Mpls Lakers are committed to keeping registration fees low. The season fees we charge help us provide uniforms, practice facilities, insurance, and tournament registrations for our teams. With low registration fees, the Mpls Lakers can ensure as many opportunities as possible for kids in Minneapolis to play competitive basketball.
Donations help the organization cover the costs for many other components of the program to include:
Need based scholarships for 10% of the players in the program
Regularly refreshed equipment for teams (balls, first aid kits, etc)
Online training for our coaches through the Trusted Coaches program
4-6 hours of basketball coaching training for our coaching staffs
Our website & league software powered by SportsEngine
In addition to those expenses, there are a lot of pressures increasing our costs per player. These include our Insurance and Facilities Rentals - two components that have increased significantly over the last two years.
We are proud of what the Mpls Lakers does for boys and girls in the 4th through 8th grade but we also see opportunities to expand our reach. Donations of any amount will help us build the organization in a strategic and thoughtful way aligned with our mission.
Thank you for helping us make this season the biggest & best yet!
