FAQ & OTHER INFORMATION


How are teams selected?

Ultimately, Varsity Coach, Jason Long, will make roster decisions. WBC Professional Coaches will also help in the tryout process. Teams are designed with each player’s development and experience in mind as well as the overall development of the program.

When and where are games?

Games are mostly in Utah County at area high schools. A few game dates are also at Wasatch High School; although likely, not all teams will play at WHS. Games are held on select Mondays, Wednesdays and Saturdays beginning after Thanksgiving and ending in February. 6th, 7th & 8th Grade Gold and Black teams will also have games in March.

When and where are practices?

WBC will schedule gym time at WHS, RMMS, and TMS. Practices are held in the afternoon/evening. Each coach will be involved selecting nights. Teams will practice 2-3 times a week and sometimes more. 6th, 7th & 8th Black and Gold teams will typically schedule 3 practices a week.
