Help fund youth basketball & get your company
exposed to hundreds of passionate families

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. In fact, hundreds of energetic families take part in our seasons every year, making the Mpls Lakers the largest youth basketball program in Minneapolis. Because of this, we offer many ways to partner with us to help keep our program vibrant, provide opportunities for kids to play competitively and help local businesses be part of something bigger.
