Grades 4 - 8: Our Select Program is the more competitive of the two basketball programs that we offer. Most teams will play between 25-35 games (16 league games + tournaments). The season runs from early November through early March and it can require, at times, a commitment from your player of 4-5 activities per week between practices and games. Our teams participate in the Three Rivers League. The number of players who try out and their ability level will help determine the number of teams the WBA has in each grade, the team rosters, and the level in the league at which those teams play.

Mandatory Post-Tryout Select Parent Meeting: At least one parent, legal guardian or a representative must be in attendance at this parent meeting or your child may not be allowed to participate on a Select Team. The meeting is scheduled for Thursday, October 17, 2019, at Boeckman Creek Primary School. The schedule is as follows:

6:30pm: Doors Open
6:45pm: Parent Meeting | Discuss Select Program, Introduce Head Coaches, Q&A
7:15pm: Team Meetings | Teams meet briefly with their Head Coaches.
7:30pm: Uniform Sizing | Sample uniforms will be available to confirm sizes you ordered.

Pre-Season Parent Information Meeting: We are hosting a parent meeting to share more information about our Select and Rec Programs. You are strongly encouraged to come and learn abour our program and ask questions before tryouts and team selection begins.

Registration: Registration opens on September 3, 2019 and ends the last night of tryouts (see below). A $25 Tryout Fee will be collected at the time of registration. This is not guarantee of placement on a team, but is applied to the total cost or registration should your player be offered placement on one of our Select Teams. If your player is not offered placement, the Tryout Fee can either be refunded or applied to registration for our Rec Program. The total Cost of Registration for Grades 5, 6, 7 and 8 is $350; Grade 4 is $300 (due to less tournament play). All fees will only be collected electronically (Credit/Debit or ACH).

Select Teams will be posted no later than the end of the day on the Sunday following trouts. You will then receive a notification via e-mail if your player was placed on one of our Select Teams prompting you to either "Accept" or "Reject" their placement. We expect for a decision to be made by the end of the day on the Wednesday following teams being posted (appox. 72 hours). If your player has not accepted or rejected their placement by the end of the day on Wednesday, their placement may be offered to the next available player on Thursday.

Assuming the decision was to accept your player's placement, please log back in to your account and complete payment for the remaining cost of registration. Payment must be completed by the end of the day on Friday. If your player has accepted their placement, but not completed the payment for the remaining cost of registration by the end of the day on Friday, their placement may be offered to the next available player on Saturday.

If there are circumstances that should require special attention, either related to the acceptance of placement or payment of the remaining cost of registration, please contact Nicholas Emmett, Select Director, immediately at (503) 707-5869.

Tryouts: The Tryout and Team Selection Process is carried out entirely by the Wilsonville High School Boys and Girls Coaching Staffs. Select Players from prior seasons may not wear their old Select uniforms or other gear to tryouts. Players may only try out for the Grade Level that they are in (i.e. a 5th Grade Student cannot try out for a 6th Grade Select Team).

NOTE: Each player must participate in at least one tryout to be considered for a team. Attending both evenings is highly recommended. If your child cannot participate at either tryout for medical reasons, you must have a valid medical note from a doctor and contact the Select Director before tryouts to supply him with that information. If you do not your child will not be considered for a team.

Coaches: Our Select Teams are coached by volunteers. All our coaches must be interviewed by our Coaching Selection Committee to determine if we are a right fit for each other. If you are interested in helping us as a coach, registering is the first step. The deadline for requesting to be a coach is Sunday, September 22nd! Interviews will be conducted by our Coaching Selection Committee (a panel of non-board memebers) on Tuesday, September 24th from 6:00-9:30pm. If you have indicated your interest in coaching through our online registration, you will be contacted by email by our Select Program Director, Nicholas Emmett.
