REGISTRATION & TRYOUTS

Boys Feeder Basketball Tryouts – Grades 6-8

This program features sixth, seventh, and eighth grade team(s) per high school (W.N.H.S. and W.W.S.H.S.) and emphasizes a higher level of competition. Participants living north of Roosevelt Rd. make up the north teams and participants living south of Roosevelt Rd. comprise the south teams. If you’re not attending either high school, you do not qualify for this program, as it is a feeder program for each school. This is a traveling program, and playing time is not guaranteed. Season runs from October to March. NOTE: This program does not conflict with the Middle School Basketball teams.
