    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. 2019 was BTBL’s 17th year. 2019 was highly successful based on feedback from coaches, players, parents as well as additional towns who have joined in 2019. In 2019, 432 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. Boys 2nd and Boys and Girls 3rd grade have equal playing time rules. Over 3200 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.




    Boys and girls will compete in competitive flights from second grade through eight. Each boys division (4th – 8th) has a minimum of 5 flights. All divisions (2th – 8th) play a 14 game schedule beginning January 2nd and ending on the second Sunday in March. Playoffs leading to flight Championships take place in 4th – 8th grades. 3300+ games will be played in over 100 gyms in the BTBL in 2020. Each flight represents a different competitive level of competition.


    We keep it simple


    The use of Referee Assignors (3) assures a fair and simple environment for teams to compete. Two Referees per game and Assignor fees are included in BTBL’s Registration fee.


    Sportsmanship Award


    BTBL recognizes the importance of Sportsmanship by selecting a female and male recipient to be recognized as the BTBL Sportsmanship of the Week Award honor. Winners have their story and picture posted on the Welcome Page of the BTBL Web site for a week.
