WTB 2020/2021 Season Tryouts

Dear WTB Families,

Thank you all very much for your interest and participation in Session 1 of the WTB 2020-2021 Season Tryouts.  The overall turnout of our boys and girls players was fantastic.  It was great to see our returning players back on the court and equally exciting to see the participation and enthusiasm of the incoming 4th grade class.

Program Updates:

It remains our intention to play basketball this winter.  While we cannot guarantee a 2020-2021 basketball season, we are planning for a season and doing so with the safety of our WTB players, coaches and families top of mind.

  • Preparations for Session 2 of tryouts (Scrimmage/Game-Play) are underway.  This tryout will take place at an indoor private facility in Massachusetts when (if) the current rules and regulations for basketball are lifted and games are permitted by the Office of Energy and Environmental Affairs (EEA).  An update to the current restrictions is expected in November. Teams will not be announced until after Session 2 of tryouts have occurred.

 

  • The Merrimack Valley Youth Basketball League (Boy’s League) and River Valley Travel Basketball League (Girl's League) have partnered to provide town organizations the ability to participate in game play at private facilities in Massachusetts, when (if) the EEA permits game play.

 

  • The tentative schedule would be condensed to 8 games beginning the weekend of January 9th with playoffs.  Games would be held on Saturdays and Sundays.  Additionally, we are hopeful that our teams will be able to participate in tournament play similar to years past.
  • At this point it is very unlikely that Wilmington Public Schools will be available for us to hold practices.  WTB continues to evaluate private facilities (closer to Wilmington) for possible weekday practices.
  • An update on Session 2 of tryouts will be provided once communication is published by the EEA in November.
  • The cost per player to participate this season will be announced once we receive notice from both leagues of total costs and possible practice time is secured by our organization.

Finally, in response to the success of our 2019-2020 WTB Apparel Sale, we are pleased to share the link to our WTB 2020-2021 Fall Flash sale
