This year we have over 20 travel teams in grades 4 through 8 which includes boys and girls.
The typical time commitment for the season will be 2 practices during the school week, possibly a home or an away game one school night per week and a game on the weekend.
Winter travel league seasons usually start in Mid December and run through early March. Some travel teams play in pre-season and post-season tournaments.
The typical season will include more games for the older aged teams with the 7th and 8th graders playing in the neighborhood of 25 games and a tournament or two. The younger teams will be playing 18-20 games during the year and a tournament or two.
The WBA is encouraging interested parents with basketball backgrounds to contact us if there is an interest in being a Head Coach or an Assistant Coach of one of our travel teams.
