What Makes JWYBL different from other leagues?

First and foremost the JWYBL is a developmental league. We pride ourselves in creating a fun, engaging, and positive learning environment. We are direct partners with Next Level Sports Complex, which allows us to have first priority of gym time for all our games, practices, and academies. Our staff is a paid and certified staff. We do not have Moms or Dads coaching their own children. Your son or daughter will play for a coach that has had to pass JW basketball certification. All staff are compensated employees who work with us in other capacities. Your athlete will learn the value of teamwork, good sportsmanship, and how to play the game of basketball. We do not push winning at any cost, we place emphasis on overall development; not merely physical, but mental, social and emotional development as well.

Why should my son or daughter play for the JWYBL?

We offer what other programs can't; indoor facilities (for practices and games), paid coaches, curriculum based practices and free Academies which will not only speed up the developmental process but will reinforce what is being taught at team practices. 

What days are JWYBL practices and what time and how long?

Practice days are dependant upon your head coach . Practice days will fall under one of three days; Monday, Tuesday or Thursday. Practice times will run for 1 hour and begin at 5pm or 6pm.

What days are JWYBL games played and what time?

All games are played on Friday nights. Game blocks are 6pm, 7pm, and 8pm.

What days are the JWYBL FREE ACADEMY and what time?

All Youth League participants are allowed to attend Wednesday nights from 6:00pm-7:30 pm. Once the first league practice week begins you will be granted access to every Wednesday night at no cost. Should you want more academy time, the FEE is $10 per class, per drop off during the youth league. You are allowed to attend all Wednesday’s that run through the duration of the league including the last game week.

How many games , practices and academy visits does your child get per season?

Each player will be guaranteed 7 practices and 6 games, All players will also be granted access to 7 up to 8  Academy classes. 

How much playing time will my athlete get?

Your child will be guaranteed to play half of every game. 

How are teams formed?

We evaluate players on our evaluation night. We run each player through a series of drills. We rate athletes on FOUR traits; Ball handling ability, shooting, speed and size. All players are ranked 1-5 on each level and then an average score is compiled to rate the player. A max score of 20 is given out. We make teams as balanced as possible through a coaches draft.

Who will coach my son or daughter?

Your athlete will have a certified paid coach or volunteer. All JWbasketball staff is required to have a specified amount of training and experience in order to coach our youth league teams. 

Can I volunteer to be an assistant or head coach?

We welcome all inquires. You will be required to go through the certification process should you want to be involved as a coach.

How can I obtain a refund?

All refunds will need to be requested in a written email and sent to the director. There will be no refunds after the first practice week is completed.
