New website, same EPWBA. One difference is that registration will now be conducted on-line and payment made via credit or debit card. We will have one in-person registration on Saturday, October 29 [Benton Middle School, 1:00 - 4:00 pm], but we encourage everyone to make use of the on-line process.
EPWBA operates basketball leagues in six different age groups for boys ages 8-18 and girls ages 8-14. [Leagues are "co-ed" through age 11.] Anyone within those age parameters is eligible to play. All players participate in a skills assessment activity, or "tryout," held in either the second or third week of November depending on age [or, for the 12-14 year-old Junior Girls League, the Monday following Thanksgiving]. Everyone registered by November 1 is guaranteed a place on a team. Those registering after November 1 will probably be on a team as well, but could be placed on a waiting list if capacity is reached in their age group. Teams will meet for practice for the first time in the week following Thanksgiving. The older leagues will start play in December, but most game activity will occur in January and February. spilling over into March.
The cost to play is $90 for the 8-9 yr-old Novice League, and $120 for all other age groups. There is a $10 discount for a second, third, etc. child.
