The Minnesota Youth Basketball Alliance (MYBA) will recognize and accept teams that are coordinated and sponsored by the recognized organizations (formerly known as Coalition Members) below. All recognized Minneapolis and St. Paul basketball programs are deemed bonafide organizations and will become members of the Minnesota Youth Basketball Alliance for the 2021-2022 winter community based traveling basketball season, fulfilling the same requirements as every other member of the MYBA. If organizations choose to not join the MYBA, they will be removed as a recognized organization.

The Intent of the Minneapolis & St Paul Basketball Coalition 



  1. Help the cities of Minneapolis and St. Paul create a functioning infrastructure that would be similar to the suburban (and rural) youth sport associations that currently exist.
  2. Help bridge the gap between the cities of Minneapolis and St. Paul and the rest of the Minnesota basketball network.
  3. Give more kids in Minneapolis and St. Paul the opportunity to participate in an organized and creditable traveling basketball program.
