The Muskego Parks and Recreation Club Boys and Girls Warriors Basketball programs have wrapped up another great year. Since the 2003/2004 season, we have been providing club basketball opportunities for Muskego boys and girls desiring to play competitive basketball. In this, our 9th year, we were proud to have 62 young ladies and 78 young men participate with our Club in the 2011/12 season. Congratulations to the teams that won their divisions and league tournaments.
Our Girls Club participates in the Metro South Girls Basketball League and our Boys Club participates in the Wisconsin Youth Basketball League (WYBL). These leagues are comprised of teams from other municipalities in the greater Milwaukee area. We will again be participating in these leagues for the 2012/13 season. Competition levels in these leagues are very high and our Muskego teams fared very well this year.
We also want to take the opportunity to thank the Muskego High School staff who work closely with our program. Thanks to Scott Kugi-Activities Director, Brian Hirtz-Girls Head Basketball Coach and Andy Capes-Boys Head Basketball Coach for their continued support of our Club and for working with our program through club parent meetings, coaches trainings and special events.
Our Warriors program is run as a “club” format, and therefore, we do not cut any players who attend our player evaluations. Our program is very different than a “select” program where players can be cut from participating with a program based on the child’s tryout performance. As we want to see all children have the opportunity to play competitive basketball, we only provide placement evaluations in order to place all players wishing to participate in our club on a team that will be competitive in the division they will be playing in and allow for children to improve their basketball skills and “team” concepts.
Player evaluations for returning and new 4th through 8th grade boys and girls players wishing to play with our club program will be held in September. More information on the player evaluations will be published in our fall program guide, and will be posted on our website and our Facebook page in early August.
