Parents and Players,

Thursday April 22nd - Incoming 7th graders (current 6th grade) - 7:00-9:00 at Tosa East
Please note we are only planning one tryout session per grade level. Each session is two hours to allow enough time to properly evaluate the players. If the coaches feel they need a second date that tryout will be scheduled for the following week.
All girls trying out will be starting with a clean slate. Girls will not only be evaluated by what they did this year, but also what they do at the tryout session. For the teams that will be split equally (grades 4-7), there could be some movement on team placement to split the teams evenly. During the winter season most teams will share practice time with the other team at their grade level. This will allow the girls more time to practice together and provide scrimmage time to practice with players of similar skill levels.
This year's season (tentative plan in place) will be as follows:
Summer session - League play for 6 weeks and one practice a week in May and June. Summer session ends third week of July
Winter session- League play (16 games) and 4-5 tournaments. Winter session starts with practices in October ( 1-2 practices a week depending on availability). Leagues and tournaments start in mid November and will run into the first half of March.
2021 Fees are as follows:
Summer session: $150 - This covers league play, 3/4 of our gym costs and Club insurance.
Winter session: $250- This covers league play, tournaments and rest of gym costs
Fees will be less for 4th grade teams.
Uniform fees will be determined based on what is needed.
Some parents have asked about playing in only one of our sessions. This can be done if the numbers present themselves. Costs would be determined at that point.
Please pass this information on to any parents that are interested, especially parents of 3rd grade girls.
Any questions or concerns, feel free to reach out via email firstname.lastname@example.org
Thanks for your continued support of our program

The Wauwatosa East Girls Jr Raiders Basketball Club exists to provide a positive, competitive environment where girls can learn and develop basketball and critical life skills. Our mission is:
The Wauwatosa Basketball Club (WBC) is designed to provide a competitive option for girls in grades 4 through 8 and living in the Tosa East attendance district. The ultimate goal is to prepare the interested student-athletes for high school competition with Wauwatosa East High School Girls Basketball. Summer time play and tournament competition is a major focus for the development of WBC players and teams. Teams will be formed in the spring so as to have the opportunity to develop their individual and team skill in practice and league play over the summer and the following winter season.
