Practices began on January 4th, some additional restrictions were added like players wearing mask at all times in the building (even while playing). Teams are doing their best to find tournaments to play in, the options are very limited this year as many have cancelled.
Mankato will not be hosting a tournament this year due to lack of facilities available to the association.
TOURNAMENT FEE REMINDER
As you are aware, this year with all the uncertainty of tournament play our registration fee was greatly reduced. Each team coach is responsible for registering and paying for the tournaments they participate in. This requires each coach to collect tournament fees from the players/parents directly.
Coaches please maintain an open communication line between you and your player's parents so that these fees are reimbursed in a timely manner.
Parents, please reimburse your coach for any tournament fees they may incur as soon as requested.
The MBA board does not allow a player who has not paid their registration fee to participate in practices or games. Likewise, the MBA board fully supports the coach's decision to not allow players to play in tournaments if requested tournament fees have not been paid.

Due to the unknown status or cost of tournaments this year. We lowered the registration fee per player to only help cover the cost of practice facilities. We are requiring each team to set their own tournaments and collect money from parents for those tournaments.
Parents YOU WILL incur additional cost to help cover the fee for tournaments that your team registers for. These payments will be made directly to your coach when the cost is determined. Tournament fees traditionally run between $250-$500 per team per tournament.
