Wisconsin's Premier Boys Youth Basketball League

* Posting of  2018 / 2019 Schedule *

MANY WAIVERS ARE STILL MISSING.  If your player's parent hasn't signed the waiver OR the waiver is not in MY hands prior to your first game, the child does NOT play.  I MUST have your waiver prior to your first game.  Email it to mark_kristin@yahoo.com or mail/deliver it to my house. 5121 S Donna Ct. Hales Corners 53130. Do not bring the waiver to your first game or leave it at the facility as it will never be delivered to me and you will have to do the process all over.   Mark

REPORT YOUR SCORES!   We still have 10 games unreported on Tuesday morning.

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

Please use the WEBSITE SCHEDULE.  That is the official one!

 

 

   * 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

* REMINDERS *

  1. Referee fee's.  They are to be paid BEFORE each game is played.  $25 per game.
  2. The website schedule is the Official one.  Please do not use the old spreadsheet and that will NOT be updated with any changes.
  3. Get in the habit of having one "designated" team official to check the website weekly for updates.  While we don't anticipate many changes, we are the guests of each hosting school and when they ask us to make modifications, we are required to do so.  Any such changes will be itemized on the front page and reflected in your schedule.
  4. The winning team is responsible for reporting the result of your game.  Send it in immediately on Sunday after playing.  Send to WYBLScores@yahoo.com.
  5. Let's get off to a great start.  Coaches, players, and parents should all behave accordingly and not do anything that would reflect poorly on your school.  Remember, it is youth basketball, and while competitive, your actions are more important than the final score.

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”.

"Yesterday is not ours to recover, but tomorrow is ours to win or lose."

Our country is now taking so steady a course as to show by what road it will pass to destruction, to wit: by consolidation of power first, and then corruption, its necessary consequence.

It is amazing that people who think we cannot afford to pay for doctors, hospitals, and medication somehow think that we can afford to pay for doctors, hospitals, medication and a government bureaucracy to administer it.
