Boys Leagues play internally and the Girls Leagues play against other Union County teams across mutliple gyms.  If the Girls League grows, we can compete internally. Teams will practice once per week for 75 mins and play a game on Saturday. 

The same uniform manufacturer will be used as last year so this should help with picking player's size. 

Evaluations for Boys Grades 3-8 and Girls 8U, 11U, and 14U are required.  These will be held 10/20-10/21 & 10/27. Players are required to attend one session. *Please note that dates are subject to change based on gym availability and Fall Sports schedule conflicts.  You will be notified in advance of any date changes. As always, wearing Duke Basketball attire is strongly encouraged!

Coaches will draft teams 10/29-11/3 and team notifications/practice slot will be sent no later than 11/10.  Please do not request a team change after teams are finalized.  If you cannot practice on certain days or have special team requests, please put this under COMMENTS when you register.  We will attempt to accomodate these if possible but no guarantees can be made.

Practices will begin Sunday, 11/11 for teams who have Sunday practices.  All other practices will begin Monday 11/12 at our Elementary and Middle Schools.  Practices will be an hour and 15 minutes. League will follow the UCPS Holiday Schedule. Directions can be found under WCWAA Gym Locations and Directions under the Basketball tab.

Registration dates for Middle and High School players are extended to accommodate tryouts and full refunds will be granted upon making a school team. Middle School players are permitted to participate in WCWAA. The High School league allows players to create their own teams in two divisions: 9th/10th & 11th/12th. Players register and pay individually. The head coach then submits a team roster to High School commissioner Jim Haarstick at or Steve Garcia at There are no evaluations at the high school level. Games are held Saturday and practices on Sunday. Players who are not attached to a team can still register and will be assigned to an exisiting team or grouped to create a new squad. All teams must have an adult as head coach. Please note that if you make a high school team, you cannot participate in this league per Union County rules.

There are caps on each league and once filled, there will be a waitlist.  You will be notified if a space opens up and remit payment at that time. 

Coaches are parent volunteers so teams of 7-9 players are formed based on the number of coaches. If you are interested in coaching, please fill out the INTENT TO COACH form under the BASKETBALL TAB.  A background check will be done if you have not coached at WCWAA in 2018.  We will hold a meeting in October for training.T

Boys ELITE teams will be formed for our most skilled players seeking to further develop.  An additional practice will be held weekly and games will be played on Sundays at Carolina Courts.  These players will be identified at evaluations and contacted by a coach or commisisoner.  There is an additional fee to particpate to cover gym rental and team registration fees.
