Welcome to WYBL's home on the web!

Wisconsin's Premier Boys Youth Basketball League

 

Covid Update

  • There is NOT a spectator limit being imposed at any facility this year
  • There is NOT a mask mandate for any player, coach, scoring table personnel, or referee.
  • There IS a mask mandate for spectators at the facilities listed below:
    • Pius XI High School
    • Greenfield High School
    • Brown Deer High School
  • ​​There is NOT a mask mandate for spectators at any other facility.
  • Concessions are at the discretion of the hosting facility.  Some are taking it slow to start but I anticipate most will have offerings during the season. 
  • There is NOT a formal staging area as was required last year.  However, we ask that teams try to exhibit restraint from all congregating in the same places.

 

The Website schedule is now "official".  I will not be updating the spreadsheet anymore and will only make changes to the website dropdown schedule.  Get in a habit of checking for updates on a weekly basis.  From the TEAM tab at the top of the page, select your DIVISION, select your TEAM NAME, and then SCHEDULE, RESULTS, STANDINGS, etc.

 

Year End Championship Tournament dates are listed below in the Communciation section of the website.

Any questions.  Email Leeclement1@yahoo.com

 

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 wyblscores@yahoo.com.  

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: Leeclement1@yahoo.com

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”.

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.
