The fifth grade house league is designed to continue building skills and developing the fundamentals of basketball, with an emphasis on teaching team concepts. Having fun and exhibiting good sportsmanship are always the priorities. The season runs November 1st- March 5, including the season ending tournament.
Fifth grade players are required to attend player evaluations in October to be placed on a team. Players that tried out for travel basketball and were not placed on a team are not required to attend house player evaluations. Please notify the league coordinator if your son will not be able to attend the evaluations. Teams will be created based on the players evaluations. No “play with” requests will be accepted. Schedules will be uploaded to your team pages after teams are formed.
League Coordinator: Kari Underwood, email@example.com
Season: The season will begin in early November and run through early March.
Practices: The teams will practice once a week for one hour, rotating Monday-Friday. Players are expected to attend practices on a regular basis to learn the grade appropriate fundamental skills needed to compete in game situations. At the beginning of the year coaches will be given examples of practice plans, as well as some drills they can use to help the kids develop their skills. The teams will have two or three full practices before the season starts.
Games: Teams will play a game once a week on Saturdays. The games will be 5-on-5 and played on 10-foot baskets. See below for complete game rules.
Playing Time: Playing time is to be evenly distributed among all players who are present at any given game. No player will be allowed to play extra time in order to affect the outcome of a game.
Coaches: House basketball does rely on volunteers for coaching. Please consider coaching and indicate it during registration if interested. At the beginning of the year coaches will be given examples of practice plans, as well as some drills they can use to help the kids develop their skills.
Web Site: Your team will have a dedicated TEAM page on the WBBA website. It’s the easiest place to find practice/game times and locations.

The 5th grade house league has player evaluations in October. Player evaluations is approximately two hours and players will be evaluated on their basketball skills (dribbling, passing, and shooting) as well as offensive and defensive skills during 3 v 3 and 5 v 5 games. Each player is required to attend the player evaluations so that the teams can be formed evenly. Teams will be formed by mid-October with practices scheduled to start early-November. We do not accept play-with requests.
