We are also excited to announce that we are planning

This is a great opportunity to get some exercise, have a night out and possibly meet someone you might like to coach with on our children’s and youth league beginning in November ( no obligation – you can just come out for fun!)

We will be here from 7-9.

Just bring $5.00 to toss in the bucket to cover “Open Gym” costs.

There will be a WCBasketball Monitor on site.

You must be over 18 and you cannot bring children under the age of 18 – not even to watch

 

Wesley Chapel Basketball is a coed instructional league. We strive to teach and encourage good sportsmanship in all interactions with players, coaches, parents and referees. There are modified rules intended to enhance the experience and development for everyone involved in the program.  Please read the updated league rules  for  details. These principles summarize the Purpose and Goals of the Wesley Chapel Basketball League: 

  • Teach the fundamentals of the game
  • Give players equal playing time in every game and opportunities to be fully involved in the team’s offensive and defensive efforts
  • Have fun
  • After all of the above have been accomplished, winning the game is the last goal.

 

 Please read the league philosophy above carefully to ensure that you and your player share the same expectations before registering.

The league does not accept friend requests. Two players are assured to be on the same team only if their parents are coaching together. Teams are intended to be equal in ability and are formed in this manner: 

  1. coaches / coaching partnerships are determined
  2. practice nights and times are assigned based on coaches needs and players ages
  3. coaches children are placed on their teams
  4. teams are completed using practice night availability provided during registration to the best of our ability, and the player evaluation skills assessment ratings.
