Things for coaches, parents and spectators


to keep in mind while children are playing


sports on our courts, and fields…


 This is a GAME being played by CHILDREN.

 If they win or lose every game of the season, it will not impact what college they


attend or their future income potential.


 Of the hundreds of thousands of children who have ever played youth sports


in Weirton, very few have gone on to play professionally. It is highly unlikely that


any college recruiters or professional scouts are watching these games; so, let's


keep it all about having fun and being pressure-free.


“Referees umpires and officials are human and make mistakes, just like players,


coaches and you. No one shouts at you in front of other people when you make a


mistake, so please don’t yell at them. We do not have video replay; so, we will go with


their calls.”



The league has 3 objectives:

1.    Provide an opportunity for any area youth to learn the basic fundamentals of the game of basketball in an environment where sportsmanship, teammwork and friendship are the primary goals of all the players, coaches, parents, and other interested individuals involved.

2.    Create and maintain an organization whose primary interest is for the children participating

3.    Offer equal opportunity to any young man or woman to participate without regard to physical size, skill or ability.

The league is divided into three divisions based on player's grade assignments. The divisions are

Bantam Division - Kindergarten - 2nd Grade
Junior Varsity Division (JV) - 3rd and 4th Grades
Varsity Division - 5th and 6th Grades
