These are all preliminary dates and are subject to change.

4U SMARTSTART PROGRAM - this is for 3 and 4 year olds.  No practices during the week, and no games.  This is a 1 hour program on Monday nights (6:00-7:00 PM) to help teach fundamentals like dribbling, shooting, passing, etc.  We will ask some parents to help assist in running stations for the kids.  This will either start in early December or we might wait until January to begin the program.  I will work with YMCA on the scheduling.

6U COED - there will be no draft for this age group.  Please note in the Special Requests section if you would like your child to play on the same team as another child or team. This is the one age group that I really need more volunteers as head coaches. 

All other age groups will participate in a draft/skills evaluation.  Your child will not have to participate in the draft IF they are returning to the same age group as last year and wants to return to the same team/coach.  Your child will have to participate in the draft IF (1) they are moving up to a new age group or (2) they are returning to the same age group, but their coach from last year is not returning to coach the same age group

You can request for your child to be on the same team as another player, however, we cannot guarantee that they will be on the same team based on the draft.  This will help from teams stacking players, and on the flip side, I don't want to force a coach to take a lower skilled player just so the kids can be on the same team.  My goal is to have all teams as equal as possible.

AGE GROUPS:
4U Smartstart (3 and 4 year olds) - can't turn 5 before September 1, 2019
6U Coed (5 and 6 year olds) - can't turn 7 before September 1, 2019

Registration Information

Registration will open in the Fall 2019 for the upcoming LWAA basketball season.  Please sign up ASAP to avoid your child being placed on the waiting list.  We want all kids to be able to play but team rosters are limited due to the amount of kids and coaches that sign up.

HOW TO SIGN UP: Once Registration is OPEN!
(1) log into your account on www.lwsports.org (or create a new one for first time participants)
(2) click on "My Account"
(3) The basketball program should show up as "Program Available" under your child's name
(4) for all new LWAA participants, they will need to create an account and profile

Once registration is complete, then I will send out more information about the draft/skills evaluation for each age group.

Most practices will start in November and games will start on Saturdays in December.  Once registration ends, kids will not be allowed to sign up late. Practices will be held once a week (time and location will be determined after the teams have been formed), and games will be every Saturday (some games will be held during the week for some of the older age groups).



Volunteer Information

If you plan on coaching this year (and YES, we really need you), please do so as soon as possible so I can start getting a feel for numbers (number of coaches needed vs. # of kids/teams). 

VOLUNTEER COACHES - last year we had 340 kids sign up for our basketball program.  The problem that we always run into (in all of our sports programs) is the lack of coaches.  I would greatly appreciate it if some parents would be willing to be a head coach this year.  It is not a huge time commitment …  one practice per week (for 1 hour) during the week and games are on Saturday.  We will have a coaches meeting before the season starts to go over rules and I will put together practice ideas for coaches to help out.  If interested in volunteering, please go under "My Account", then go to the "Volunteer Opportunities" tab, and sign up.  If you want to sign up a spouse to coach, then they will need to create their own account on the website.  The reason is because we have to run a background check on each individual volunteer to secure the safety of our kids.
