ROSTER ADDITION DEADLINE:  The LAST day to add a player to your roster is January 1, 2019.  Also, remember you must then provide me with a signed waiver for any roster addition by January 1, 2019 or that boy will be ineligible to play in league games.   Email it to me at  mark_kristin@yahoo.com or mail it to 5121 S Donna Ct. Hales Corners 53130.    Mark

Remember to bring $25 each game to pay the referees prior to the game.

 

   * How to Report Game Results *

 

The winning team is responsible for reporting the game result.  Please send the result in no later than the end of Monday following the game.  Better still, with today's technology at your disposal, send it in immediately after your game!  We will update the website and the comparative scores will be available for all to see.

Send an email to:

Include the date, grade, division, the teams and score.  An example is this:
Nov 7th, 8A, North 39 East 37

 

The WYBL is a league that supports community-based teams.  It is required that each player reside in your school district or currently open enroll into your school district.  Let me be clear on this: no teams shall be comprised on multi-district players.  Players should be assigned to teams within their grade level (or play "up") and not according to age

As is always the case, please contact me at any time with questions and/or suggestions.  The aim is to continue to improve to make the WYBL the best youth boys basketball league in the State.  For Information Concerning the League please contact Lee Clement (414) 839-6800.     Email: Leeclement1@yahoo.com

 Any Team Interested in Changing Divisions?

FAQ's

  • Switching teams have to inherit the schedule of the team they switch with.  No changes.
  • A switch will not occur until each team has played the same number of league games.  In this case, I would like to see teams play 6 games before wanting to switch as this should give them the best indication of how they will fare in the current division.
  • Wanting to switch is not enough.  There has to be a dance partner for this to happen!
  • I will not count any wins or losses in your "old" division when it comes to place your team in the proper seed for the Year End Championship Tournament.  Only your results in the new division will effect your tourny placement.
  • The website, however, will continue to show the wins/losses as that can't be manually adjusted.

If interested, send me an email (Leeclement1@yahoo.com) and I will post the interested teams on the website and see if a suitable partner can be found to facilitate the switch.

The following teams have indicated a willingness to switch divisions:

  • 7A CMH willing to move down to 7Z
  • 7Z Germantown is willing to move to 7B

Basketball Thoughts & Observations

A Basketball Carol

As the story goes, Ebenezer Coach was watching a basketball game on TV with his family when he observed a player travel.  “Bah turnover”, he said.  A few minutes later, after an offensive rebound and subsequent put-back, he replied, “bah, box-out”.  Though it turned out to be an exciting game for the majority of the family, Ebenezer was always negative and uttered his last “bah, humbug” before heading upstairs and going to bed.

Immediately upon entering a deep sleep, he encountered the Ghost of Red Auerbach, who reminded him that basketball is a team game best performed when all players are fundamentally sound and operating as one.  Do not coddle your stars (they’ll thank you later), but teaching is best done through positive rather than negative reinforcement.  And with that advice, he faded in to the distant past.

Next to appear was the Ghost of Phil Jackson.  He was preaching patience and the need to not be so negative when dealing with today’s players.  Different generations often require unique approaches.  “The best way to get a horse to drink from the water is to have them believe it was their idea in the first place to go there”, opined the Zen-master.  The map to the watering hole may turn out to be curve-linear, but the end result will be more rewarding.  With those thoughts, he, too, then vanished into the night.

The last vision presented to Ebenezer startled him.  It was a bit hazy, but he could see that a man was prowling the sidelines of a youth basketball game and berating referees over phantom non-calls.  He was yelling at his players and being critical of the outcomes even when they attempted to do the right thing.  He could see the unhappy looks on the parent’s faces as the coach continued his overbearing ways.  What poor sportsmanship, thought Ebenezer.  Where on Earth did he ever learn such behavior?  Shaking his head in an attempt to rid himself of this vision only served to clarify the apparition.  Try as he may, there was no denying it.  There, on the sideline, was the Ghost of Basketball Future…….his own son!

His restless night was broken by the alarm clock signaling his wake up call.  

Wiping the sleep from his eyes Ebenezer Coach thought to himself, “yes, that was a wake up call indeed”.
