Travel Teams

BUSA manages numerous travel teams in Deridder, Ragley, and Moss Bluff. The team age groups are organized by birth years; typically a 2 year cohort. The travel teams are composed of the more serious players looking for higher level of play and competition.
  For travel teams, girls can play on a boys team if there is no girls team available, but boys cannot play on a girls team. The fall season players carry over for the Spring but there are always a few that can't play in the spring so we will have spots on most teams and some teams may lose too many and have to combine with one of our partner organization in Sulphur or Lake Charles. We will hold assessments for players in April/May and then again in December/January. We will do our best to accommodate as many players in our travel program as possible, however much depends on parent commitment. It does cost more time and money to participate in travel.

Not all teams will have the same cost, schedule or practice location.  For a "Deridder pure" travel team the cost is typically $260 per season; plus uniforms will cost  $ 55 more.  This is based on a schedule with two overnight tournaments and 6-8 other regional games (some home, some away). If playing on a combined team with Sulphur or Calcasieu the costs will increase but will be decided on a team by team basis.  BUSA will try to deconflict rec games for travel players' siblings as much as we can as numerous families have kids who play in both. Players are not allowed to enroll in travel and Rec in the same season with the exception of U15/U18 for the older players.

These registration fees cover field, referee, and tournament entry fees; parents have to pay for their families' accommodations at overnight tournaments.  Online registration is open now.
