Countdown to 2017-2018 Tryouts


Coaching Evaluation

Parents Please Complete the Coaching Evaluation

A key component of improving the travelling basketball experience for players and parents is the Coaches' Evaluation Process to ensure we gather feedback on how the coaches are performing.  The Board will utilize this feedback to ensure we continuously select the best coaching candidates as possible as well as provide feedback to the coaches so they can improve their game too!

Please take the survey now and if your entire team completes their evaluations by March 18th the team will receive $100 to put toward a season ending party for the team -- that's pretty cool!

Volunteers Needed for 2016-2017 Season

The WBBA is continuously looking at ways to improve the traveling basketball experience for our players and families.  A key component of this strategy is keeping our fees as reasonable as possible and maximizing the value of your investment in the WBBA experience. 

There are a number of you whose gifts and talents remain untapped and we want to reach out to you and invite your participation in helping shape and make the WBBA the best it can be for all participants.  In trying to get where the association wants to go, we are looking for people who are willing to share those talents to help benefit the kids in the traveling basketball program. 

There are two main areas in which we are asking for help:

  • Scholarship initiative fundraising – While traveling basketball remains one of the more affordable traveling sports options available, we also recognize that some families can benefit from financial support in order to enable their kids to participate.  To that end, the WBBA has decided to develop a scholarship program with a dedicated fundraising effort aimed at soliciting donations from members and local businesses.  As this takes shape, we are looking for a few volunteers to assist in planning and implementing the fundraising effort.
  • Concessions committee – For many years, one dedicated individual handled this operation; however, he has stepped aside and we are now in need of a small group of volunteers to assist the WBBA with concessions.  The varsity basketball programs at the high school allow the WBBA traveling program to generate funds by operating the concession stand at the high school games.  While we ask team parents to work at the concession stand throughout the season, we are in need of a small group of volunteers to help with some of the managerial tasks associated with the concessions operation throughout the season (purchasing inventory, overseeing the concessions area, coordinating the various concessions operations at our WBBA tournaments, etc.).  There may be a small stipend for those willing to take over this operation.
