NWAYBA is for school-aged boys and girls in first grade through High School. NWAYBA players ordinarily reside in the vicinity of Doss, Davis, Gullett, Highland Park, Hill, Pillow, Summitt, Murchison, Lamar, and Burnet Schools. Most divisions are co-ed, though we have added girls-only divisions for 2011.
Practices and games (usually not more than a combination of two per week, with one on Saturday) are typically held on Mondays, Tuesdays, and/or Wednesdays from 6:00 pm to 9:30 pm and Saturdays from 8:00 am to 5:00 pm.
The season will run from November thru February with playoffs finishing prior to Spring Break and the start of Spring baseball. No practices or games are scheduled during AISD school holidays.
Last minute rescheduling of games and practices may occur. These changes occur when school groups require the space NWAYBA had reserved. It is not possible for us to control AISD school activities. AISD events always take precedence.
Please check the website frequently for rescheduling and other important league news.
As a youth organization, our biggest challenge every year is securing enough gym space for all our teams to practice and play games. This year, we have been working hard to secure sites including Doss Elementary School, Hill Elementary School, Anderson High School, Murchison Middle School, Lamar Middle School, Hoop Zone and others.
We want to acknowledge these great facilities and to remind everyone of our responsibilities at these venues. In particular, AISD requires the following:
1 - No food or drink is allowed in the gyms.
2 - No door propping is allowed at these schools.
3 - All participants and their siblings need to remain in the gyms and hallways connecting them. There are bathroom facilities and water fountains in these adjacent hallways for NWAYBA to use.
NWAYBA would like to thank you all in advance for participating and supporting our league because all of us parents and volunteers know that what we do, we do for the kids!
