Welcome to WYBL's home on the web!

Wisconsin's Premier Boys Youth Basketball League

I am missing a few scores from Nov 15th @ Germantown and a few from Nov 22 at NB West HS.  Please email the scores in as I lost the score sheets.  Lee

* WYBL Update - PIUS Games Nov 29th

The City of Milwaukee has declared no outside activities can be played within their borders.  Another facility has been found but one that requires a pretty big shifting of games across the board.  It will effect some previously scheduled games at Center Court and Pewaukee.  When official confirmation is received I will post an updated schedule on Tuesday, Nov 24.  Stay Tuned!

 

* Masks are now required every at facility.  That includes all games being played at Center Court *  No Exceptions!

 

Each team will be responsible for paying the referees prior to each game (similar to last year).  Budget $400 for that.

 

There is a NEW WAIVER FORM for this season.  It has been posted as of this evening (10/6).  If you use the old form,  you will be required to obtain all of the signatures again on the new form before you will play a game.  A team WILL NOT be allowed to play even one game unless I (Mark) have your fully completed signed waiver.  That means no "in the mail", no "I'll bring it to the game", no "My parents won't show up" and no "I sent it to Lee".  Mark Brault must have the form in his possession before you can play. 

Final protocols are still evolving, but you can expect these at a minimum as we start in November.

  • limits on how many people can be in a gym at one time.  For some districts, we may only be able to use 2 of the 4 courts to limit people and in others we will be able to use all 4 courts but then have to limit how many people can attend {probably a hard limit of 2 "guests" per player}.
  • Masks will be required by schools for entry and for all non-participants
  • Temperature checks may be necessary (probably Milw County)
  • Some schools may necessitate a designated entry spot and a separate exit
  • Schools have additional cleaning and maintenance costs they have indicated they will pass along to any outside group (re: WYBL).
  • Schools most likely CANNOT offer concessions during Nov/Dec.  This traditionally is a big fund raising aspect to hosting and hosting schools will suffer a financial loss here.
  • We will be required to have someone at the entry door to perform the above tasks and charge a small admission fee (non-participant) to offset higher costs and to donate money back to host schools for their concession loss.  Exact fee to be determined, but it will be less than tournaments or high schools charge

 

   * 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

Tournament Notes & tidbits

  • It is a two game guarantee for all teams.
  • Teams are seeded into a bracket.  Win the first game and you toward the Championship side.  Lose your first game and you move to the Consolation side of the bracket.  From there, any loss means you are eliminated.
  • The WYBL will pay all referee fees
  • Awards will be given in each of the 25 divisions (five within each grade)
  • First Place, Second Place, and Consolation Champion
  • A parent volunteer will still be needed at the scoring table as well as the teams supplying a game ball.

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”.

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

"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.
