The NLP High School Travel Teams help players prepare for high school basketball. We focus on many of the primary areas that high school players struggle with including ball handling under pressure, creating your own shot, defending the ball and much more. Players will play in competitive tournaments all over Southern California. We typically travel to Las Vegas for a big tournament during the Summer.

Our playbook might be a lot for new players to grasp initially but they will figure it out if they review this section often.

The most important plays to start with are:

  • Early offense (both drag and split options) this is our transition offense
  • Circle (Strong, weak and down options) vs MAN DEFENSE
  • 14 (hi post entry and low post entry) vs ZONE DEFENSE
  • 5 out vs MAN OR ZONE DEFENSE
  • BOX out of bounds play
  • CROSS out of bounds play



Check out some of the videos below to learn more about our style of play. There’s some valuable information in each video which may help you understand the game better.

Typically, the game schedule will be available on Thursday the week of the tournament. I realize that is sometimes inconvenient but the tournament directors add teams at the last minute which makes it impossible to lock in a set schedule in advance.

Please arrive to each game at least 30 minutes prior so the player can stretch and start to focus on their responsibilities for the upcoming game.

Most of the games will be local. Many of the tournaments are in orange county due to larger venues. Most of our teams will play in at least one Las Vegas tournament each year which typically happens during the summer.

The travel team games are usually on Saturday and Sunday however, there are some exceptions. Some tournaments are held on 3 day weekends (Fri, Sat, Sun or Sat, Sun, Mon). The summer Las Vegas tournaments usually start on Thursday and if you keep winning, you might play until Sunday afternoon.

We do not charge an additional tournament fee on top of the monthly dues. Players can enter the event for free and typically parents have to pay a fee (usually $5-$12). Some events also charge for parking but in most cases, there is somewhere nearby that offers free parking. The tournament entry fee and parking fees have NOTHING to do with us or our program.

The Travel Ball season goes from September to September (similar to the school year). A player should play in the age group which reflects the age he/she will be at the end of the season. For example…A player that is 12 years old with a birthday of August 20th should play with the 13u team because they will turn 13 before the end of the season. There are also grade exceptions. If a player is too old but in the appropriate grade, they are considered a grade exception.

14u = 8th grade

13u = 7th grade

12u = 6th grade

11u = 5th grade

10u = 4th grade

There are also situations where a player might play at a grade level which reflects their skill level. Some players may play up in some cases and some may play down until they can compete at their grade level. These situations are dealt with on a case by case basis.
