Preseason Clinic (Register
online at the same time as registering for the Winter League)
WYBA offers an optional
preseason clinic for all Eanes K-6th graders. This is a great
way to kick-off our WYBA season; it allows your child to get
ready for the season while having fun with their friends. The
WHS coaches conduct the clinic so it is a great way to meet them.
WYBA donates all proceeds to support the WHS Basketball teams.

OR PREP LEAGUE
| What is the difference? Which one is the
right for us?
|Prep League is only an option for Players
in the 4th, 5th and 6th Grades
The Recreational League is for all
grades, Kindergarten to 12th. It teaches basic skills and is
intended to be informative and fun. While it is mostly Eanes
Eligible students, we are able to accommodate some non-Eanes
students in the Recreational League. The teams are divided into
divisions based on Gender and Grade. The teams practice once
a week (Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday or Thursday). Grades K- 6th
generally play one game a week on Saturday. Grades 7th-12th generally
play one game a week on Sunday afternoon. Each team’s Volunteer
Coach will select the practice night and time for his/her team.
There is no tryout for the Recreational League.
Each year the Divisions are determined
by the number of registrations. The most common Divisions for
Girls are: K/1st Grade; 2nd Grade; 3rd Grade; 4th Grade and 5th/6th
Grade. The most common Divisions for the Boys are: Kindergarten;
1st Grade; 2nd Grade, 3rd Grade; 4th Grade; 5th/6th Grade; 7th/8th
Grade and 9th/12th Grade.
We do not keep score for K-2nd.
These teams are formed mostly by school of attendance. For Grades
3rd-8th, we do keep score and have a player draft to form teams.
The Girls Divisions sometimes choose to continue forming school
related teams for the 3rd Graders, however, this must be agreed
on by the Coordinators and Coaches. Grades 9th-12th are player
coached and teams are formed through a collaboration between
the coaches and the Coordinator. The cost of the Recreational
League is listed below:
8 Games plus Tournament
The Prep League is for players in
the 4th; 5th and 6th Grades. It is a more competitive league
and has a limited number of players. Because of the limitation,
players must be Eanes Eligible Students and participate in tryouts
unless granted a waiver by the league. The Prep League consists
of 3 Divisions: Girls Prep; Boys Junior Prep, and Boys Senior
Prep. The Girls Prep League and Boys Junior Prep Divisions consist
of 6 teams with 8 players per team. The Boys Senior Prep Division
consist of 8 teams with 8 players per team.
If a player wishes to play in the
Prep League and is unable to attend the tryouts, he/she must
notify us of the conflict in advance. Missing the tryout due
to justifiable reasons does not disqualify the player from consideration;
however, failure to notify us does. The Tryout consist of two
