Welcome to WYBL's home on the web!

Wisconsin's Premier Boys Youth Basketball League

* The Schedule is Posted in the HANDOUTS Section  *

Thanks to those who have found mistakes on the schedule.  If you find any, please email Lee so I can fix and post an updated version (FYI - I just updated one as of 10/18/17  1:25pm).

  • I have uploaded the majority of schedules but about 20 of them did not work properly and a few teams were in the wrong division.  I am fixing them now, so IGNORE the drop down schedule in the TEAMS, 2017/2018 Season until I notify you that it is correct.

 

2017/2018 Schedule - how to use.

  1. The spreadsheet opens to the Team List.  (there are seven tabs on the bottom).
  2. 2nd Tab.  The Master Game Schedule.  Each grade/division is color coded to better identify games.  This is the only area in which you will find the game locations and game times.  Example:  Team 4Z5 is Slinger-red.  They are scheduled to play Nov 5th at Pius HS.  Their games are 9am and 11am on court #3 (opponents are West Bend East and Oak Creek).
  3. Each successive tab on the bottom covers each grade.  To quickly find out which weeks you play, this is the easiest way.  Example:  Team 6A3 is Muskego.  A click on that tab shows they play Nov 12, Nov 26, Dec 10, etc.  Going further to the right, you will see they play team #1 and #2 on Nov 12, Team #11 and #12 on Nov 26, and so on.

 

You will note that there are a few weeks with locations listed as "to be determined".  I am working on that and will update when it is resolved.  

 

 

Below is a timeline for the new season.

  • August 10, 2017Team Registration opens.  Forms have been updated and are in the Handouts section.  Please mail them to Mark (address on the form).  You may send the forms electronically to me or Mark, but a check still must be mailed (especially those teams making a downpayment).
  • Sept 29, 2017.  Registration formally closes (but honestly, I hope to have the field completed before that date!)
  • Oct 9, 2017.  Schedule is released in Excel format.  This will allow teams to book early season tournaments.
  • Oct 13, 2017.  Final payment due date for all teams.  Save me some hassle and submit it early!
  • Oct 16, 2017.  The schedule will be uploaded into the website scheduler (excel schedule then is discarded).
  • Oct 20, 2017.  All teams must have submitted their Roster / Waiver Form.
  • Nov 5, 2017.  Opening week of the season.  Roughly half of the teams play this weekend and the other 11/12.

 

Other important dates to know.

  • Games are played during Thanksgiving weekend.
  • Xmas Eve and New Year's Eve fall on Sunday's, so we will not have access to schools for a two week period.
  • As such, the schedule for Dec 17th and Jan 7th will be very heavy with about 70% of all teams playing those weeks

 

 

* 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.  The email address is Phone number is 414 839-6800

Basketball Thoughts & Observations

Tryout Season

A Red Herring: An expression referring to a tactic of diverting attention away from an item of significance.

 

We had a dinner party scheduled for Saturday night, so imagine my surprise when Mrs. Basketball Coach absolved me of household chores and suggested I play a round of golf during the afternoon.  Pitching in domestically or using my pitching wedge is not a tough choice.  I felt like Ferris Buehler, only with a permission slip.

 

Fast forward several hours…………post golf, upon entering the house, it was sensory overload; rock music coupled with laptops and lasagna.  I had entered a twilight zone where Iron Maiden met Iron Chef.  “Ok, I understand the mood music, the lasagna, pot of sauce on the stove, and the smell of freshly baked bread, but what’s up with the three laptops tightly arrayed on the counter?” 

 

“Oh, those, Mrs. Coach said.  “With the dawning of a new season, I’m going to hold tryouts as well.”  Huh?  {methinks she may be carrying the Mrs. Coach blog moniker a bit too far; nonetheless, I’ll bite}, what do you have in mind?

 

“Well, I want to be inclusive and give everyone a fair shot.  I want to design the tryout process to identify the top selections.  I’ll look at a mix of big and small, and certainly will not exclude anyone based upon color.  The final cuts will be hard, so I think I need to surround myself with a few unbiased evaluators to help sort through the B/S.  Towards that end, I’ve assembled my team and we’re putting together a list of names for next Saturday.”

 

The astute reader will recognize when I’ve been had.  I hadn’t reached that stage of reality yet.  I was still in my pre-dinner food sampling mode (hmmmm, come to think of it, why wasn’t I getting yelled at?).  Back to reality.  A player list?  Next Saturday?  I quickly moved to the laptop side of the counter to see what this tryout talk was all about.

The player list was instantly recognizable.  Boucher, Darrow, Wilde, Heiser, Uptown, and Lexus.  An asterisk was next to International Autos. Am I to assume that is going to be the darling of tryouts and the potential #1 draft pick?  Of course, we have had new car talks in the household, but I assumed our family contribution to stimulating the economy was on hold until our trees and flowers bloomed next year.  Mrs. Coach seems to be altering the timeline significantly.

 

“While I’m shopping with Sally and Sherry next Saturday, we’re going to test drive a few cars”.

 

 

Shouldn’t I be there to help?  “I figured you’d be watching the World Series”.  No, that’s done; Chicago won. “Well, then enjoy the Packer game”.  No, they play Sunday.  “How about sneaking in a last round of golf with Glenn?”

 

There it was again, the please go golfing suggestion.  It’s a win-win proposition as she promised to hold a second round of tryouts with me in attendance.  But the world is changing.  It’s certainly a new season in many ways!
