Fall/Winter Program Information

WAA's Competitive Basketball program is for boys and girls in 2nd-8th grades who want to play at a higher level of competition than recreational, but are not ready to commit to traveling basketball. There is NOT a separate girls' league so some teams may have a drafted female player. Participants are required to tryout in September and the teams are formed by a draft following the tryout process.

The competitive basketball program is currently available for participants in 2nd – 8th grade. Players will be drafted based on the mandatory tryout. Not all players will be drafted to a team.  There will be approx. four to six teams per grade level. Each team will consist of 10 players which will be drafted based on a tryout process. Players MUST be registered to tryout. Teams are formed based on tryout and draft.  Please note that since players are being drafted, WAA cannot honor any requests for specific teams or coaches within the Competitive Program. 

WAA reserves the right to limit the number of players per session and number of sessions.
