Evaluations

2020-2021 Player Evaluations

The Westonka Youth Basketball Association (WYBBA) provides an opportunity for boys and girls in grades 3-8 to participate in organized basketball focused on skill development, technique and competitive play.  Practices will begin in late October and games are typically played November through early-March.  Each team typically practices twice per week and games/tournaments are played on weekends. Uniforms are provided by the WYBBA. For more information or if you are interested in coaching or volunteering, please contact Kevin Nash at kevinrnash365@gmail.com or at 651-269-5737.  You can also visit the Westonka Youth Athletic Alliance website and select “Basketball” tab at www.westonkayouthathletics.org.

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:
