Wisconsin's Premier Boys Youth Basketball League

** ROSTER DEADLINE REMINDER**- January 1 is the deadline to add new players to your roster.  If this occurs, make sure you get the parent/player waiver signed and forwarded to Mark by no later than the first week of January.  Submitting this information to us in March with the excuse of forgetting to notify earlier us will not be acceptable.

* Year End Championship Tournament Information *

I have finalized the dates for the Year End Championship Tournament.  Please understand I may move dominant teams up one level and a struggling team down one division for the tournament.  As we get to mid-February, I will have a good idea of whom may rise/fall (concept of relegation in soccer).

 

Here are the Dates

Sunday, March 4th:  8A, 8Z, 8C, 7A, 7Z, 7C, 6Z, 6C, 4C

Saturday, March 10th:  6A, 6B  (to be played at Center Court - Waukesha)

   * 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 Leeclement1@yahoo.comPhone number is 414 839-6800

Basketball Thoughts & Observations

Habit Forming:

Last year, while driving on the 101 hwy in Phoenix, I noticed a sign that warned motorists that speed will be monitored via electronic means.  If one believed (as I did) that going a five miles per hour over the stated limit was within the margin of error, what harm would occur if I stretched it to 10mph?  After all, I was just keeping pace with the others around me.  Fast forward (pun intended) two weeks time and our neighborhood mailman brought a gift from Maricopa County in the form of a speeding ticket, replete with a picture of me driving my rental car in the offending zone (at least I appeared to be smiling).  I had gotten lax in my good driving habits and pledged to be better.

So, recently, on a rural country road (is that redundant?), I happened upon a four-way stop intersection.  I was tired and there wasn’t humans or even farm animals in sight, much less a police vehicle.  Nonetheless, I dutifully made a full stop before proceeding onward.  My middle son, wishing he were home, commented that my full stop will now cause him to be home that much later.

“Probably, I replied, but somewhere down the line that type of careless decision may come back to haunt me.”  I told him its habit forming and actually quite liberating to adults to not have to think about each and every decision; we use experience and practice to guide us.

“So you’re telling me you never make mistakes?” (hmmmm, where is he going with this one?

It got me thinking (after all, it was a boring country road).  Honest people can (and do) make mistakes.  Do you learn and grow from the mistakes (and failures)?  Are your actions consistent with building positive work/life habits?  I then asked Alex a series of questions.  “When your coach isn’t watching, do you cut corners in drills?  Do you find spots to rest on defense but come alive on offense?  Do you believe you can turn “it” on when it’s truly needed and thereby coast other times?”

It reads like a chicken-or-egg argument.  Does practice make good habits or are good habits practiced?  In the long run, does it matter?  One doesn’t stop practicing free throws because they made 10 in a row.  Perhaps you made 10 in a row because you have been practicing free throws.  Either way, developing good habits is an on-going process.

Mrs. Coach, who normally occupies a spot several notches above me on the evolutionary food chain, recently was cited by our towns’ finest for rolling a stop sign (the irony!).  Alas, the restraint exhibited by me on that dusty county road could not offset her lightly tapping on the brakes in lieu of a full stop.  Our habit forming check for $95 is now in the mail.
