    Bergen Travel Basketball League (BTBL)

     

    Welcome to the website of the Bergen Travel Basketball League (BTBL). BTBL provides an organized league format for Northern Jersey boys and girls TOWN travel teams to represent their towns by playing in a competitive environment against neighboring towns. 2017 was BTBL’s 15th year. 2017 was highly successful based on feedback from coaches, players, parents as well as additional towns who have joined in 2017. In 2017, 387 Travel Teams competed in BTBL. Boys Grades 4th – 8th had 5, 6 or 7 competitive flights and the Girls 4th – 8th had multiple flights as well. Over 2800 games were played. BTBL thanks each town, its coordinators and its coaches for their commitment to competitive youth basketball and most importantly for their support of BTBL. Special thanks to all parents for making it possible for their child to play in BTBL.
