Player Evaluations (September 19 and September 20)
The WYBBA will be following COVID-19 guidelines and requirements issued by the CDC and MDH with more specific details to follow once players are registered and we approach the evaluation dates, player and coach safety is top a priority. Teams are formed by grade, gender, skill level and previous experience. For grades 3 and 4, there are no formal evaluations as all teams play in a recreation league, these sessions are more for practice and to get kids acquainted with the coaches and the game. For grades 5-8, evaluations will focus on dribbling, passing, ball handling, shooting and end with a scrimmage so that rebounding and defensive skills can be evaluated. Evaluations will be held on the following dates and times:
All players MUST wear masks when entering the building and signing in. Please bring athletic shoes, a basketball, and water bottle. Please try to arrive 15 minutes prior to your time slot to check in(the players will be providing their name and phone number for contact tracing). One masked parent may accompany the child into the school, but the parent will not be permitted to stay in the school while the evaluations are going on. Extra masks and hand sanitizer will be available. Children will be given a numbered bib (no jerseys or pinnies will be shared).
Team Placement and Costs Teams will be formed based on evaluation results and number of players registered. The WYBBA board will determine the appropriate competition for each team. Teams will typically either compete in weekend traveling tournaments or will play in a recreation league in which we partner with Waconia. At the time of online registration, a fee of $150 will be collected and be applied to fee to play. Depending on evaluation results a second payment will be required to cover the balance of the fees noted below. Should cost be a barrier, scholarships are available, please inquire for more information. If seasons are cancelled due to COVID-19 refunds will be given, and if the season is shortened appropriate refunds may also be given.
