Welcome to WYBL's home on the web!

Wisconsin's Premier Boys Youth Basketball League

I am adding the brackets to the HANDOUTS (Documents) section as I update them.  I have worked hard to seed teams fairly but please understand there are a few instances where I have to move a team up or down to avoid conflicts.  Also posted is the Master Seeding file to quickly find what division and seed your team is.  

Bracket results have been posted in HANDOUTS under 2022/2023 Results (as I get the completed brackets).



The league fee of $900 per TEAM is broken down accordingly: $420 to be submitted to the WYBL and $480 to be retained by the team to pay referees before each game ($30 x 16 games = $480).  The WYBL will pay all referee fees for the year end Championship Tournament.


Any questions.  Email


Score Reporting:  I will attempt to gather all scores each week and post them on Monday morning.  If you do not see your score posted or it the posted score is incorrect, please send the correct score to  

Do not send a picture.  Simple state the Grade, division, and result.  Example: 8A Nicolet 31 Kettle Moraine 30


Team registration DOES NOT equal Acceptance into the WYBL.  All returning teams have priority and the final number of teams in each grade/competitive division will be similar to last year but subject to the WYBL creating a manageable schedule, having sufficient hosting sites for games, and the amount of time/effort my wife will allow me to devote to youth basketball!

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:

Year End Championship Tournament Information

All teams qualify to play.  Teams will be seeded based upon their regular season records and placed into brackets.  It will be a one day tournament for all grades and competitive divisions.  A two game guarantee.  Win the first game and you advance to the Championship side of the bracket.  Lose the first game and you head to the Consolation side.  Any subsequent defeat and your team is eliminated.

The seedings, brackets, location, and game times  will be posted on Monday, February 27th after all the games from Sunday have been recorded.

Please understand these dates are subject to change as I am confirming all the dates with hosting schools (high school Regionals & Sectionals can cause modifications).  But I am confident 95% of these will hold strong.

* 3rd Grade Note *  I plan on taking the top teams from 4C and 4CC and combining them into one competitive bracket (called 4C).  Teams #9-16 from each of 4C and 4CC will be in the 4CC bracket.  The bottom of both current 4C and 4CC will be combined into a bracket called 4N.

* 4th Grade note *  Same as above.  I plan on taking the top teams from 4B and 4BB and combining them into one competitive bracket (called 4B).  the bottom of both will be combined into 4BB.

*"N" Division note *   The "N" will stand for NEW as I plan on making most brackets a 16 team tournament.  It is my plan to slot the "N" in between the "Y" and "B", therefore most of those teams will come from those two divisions.  A few will come from "C" or possibly "Z", but the overall goal is to take the current divisions and make them as competitive as possible for the tournament.

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”.

Quotes of the Week

My reading of history convinces me that most bad government results from too much government.

Thomas Jefferson


"It is better to lead frombehind and to put others in front, especially when you celebrate victory when nice things occur.  You take the front line when there is danger.  Then people will appreciate your leadership."

Nelson Mandela


"Go as far as you can see; when you get there, you will be able to see farther"

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.

"The problem isn't that Johnny can't read.  The problem isn't even that Johnny can't think.  The problem is that Johnny doesn't even know what thinking is; he confuses it with feelings"

Thomas Sowell


"A government that robs Peter to pay Paul can always rely on the support of Paul"

George Bernard Shaw

The true genius shudders at incompleteness - and usually prefers silence to saying something which is not everything it should be. Edgar Allan Poe

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.

Thomas Sowell


Our scientific power has outrun our spiritual power. We have guided missiles and misguided men.

Martin Luther King, Jr.
