Sanford Sports Academy adding traveling basketball

Youth basketball players in the Fargo-Moorhead metro will have more opportunities to play traveling basketball.

The Sanford Sports Academy in Fargo is beginning traveling basketball teams for boys and girls in grades 5-8. Tryouts are scheduled for July 21st. It is anticipated that up to 10 teams will be created.

Practice and skill sessions begin in November, with one to two practices per week. All practices will be held at the brand-new Fargo Parks Sports Center at the Sanford Sports Complex. Tournaments will run from November to February, with most tournaments taking place in the Fargo-Moorhead region and Sioux Falls, S.D.

Freddy Coleman, Sanford Sports Academy Basketball manager, will oversee the traveling team operations. Coleman played collegiately at North Dakota State University, where he helped lead the Bison to the 2008-09 Summit League Men’s Basketball Championship, where they advanced to the NCAA tournament to play defending national champion Kansas. After his playing days, Coleman served as the top assistant at Concordia College (Moorhead) and returned to NDSU as an assistant coach in 2013. Coleman has led the Sanford Sports Basketball Academy since 2019.

“We are excited to give the youth in our community more opportunities to play competitive basketball,” said Coleman. “Traveling basketball is a great opportunity to provide our kids with comradery, hard work and life lessons they will be able to use their entire life. The state-of-the-art facilities at the Sanford Sports Complex will give our young athletes a great advantage in polishing their skills on and off the court. I am fired up for our staff to provide this opportunity to our young, aspiring basketball community.”
