This Wednesday, at 10 AM our Big Lake Hornets boys varsity basketball team takes on DeLasalle High School, at Williams Arena at the University of Minnesota (pictured above). Come out and cheer on the boys and show your Hornet Pride! 

We are very proud of the team and all that they have accomplished, they are not done yet! Believe and Achieve!

The Big Lake Youth Basketball Association (BLYBA) is an independent non-profit organization and is not part of the Big Lake School District programs.

We are a community group of volunteers interested in the promotion of basketball in the Big Lake attendance area and the development of a competitive basketball program. Participation will focus on camaraderie, sportsmanship and the intense instruction of basketball fundamentals and having fun while traveling to other communities.
