D66 Warrior Girls Basketball: Welcome

Westside Warrior Girls Basketball Club

Welcome to the Website of the Westside Warrior Girls Basketball Club.  

Tryouts for the 2015 - 2016 season will be held on Sunday, April 12 and Sunday, April 19 at Westside High School (8701 Pacific Street).  Attendance for both days is necessary unless arrangements are made with the coach.  We will hold tryouts for 4th, 5th, 6th and 7th grade (2015 - 2016 school year) teams. Registration begins at 1:30.  We will finish by 4:00. 

The club was formed as a feeder program for Westside High School in Omaha, NE and current or future District 66 students are welcome to tryout.   Our focus is to develop young ladies with the skill and desire to one day play at the high school level.  This year's Westside High School Varsity, Junior Varsity, Reserve and Freshmen basketball teams featured several former club players.  Former alumni of the club have gone on to NCAA Division 1, II and NAIA colleges to play basketball.

We focus on teaching solid fundamentals, working together as a team, playing competitive basketball and having fun!  If you are a current or future District 66 student, enjoy basketball, and would like to participate in a club that will help develop your skills and get immersed in the Westside way of playing basketball, we would love to see you at tryouts!

This site contains information on the girls basketball teams for our 4th - 8th grade teams.

If you would like to volunteer as a coach in our program, we are always looking for candidates for current and future seasons.  Please contact Jarrod James at jjames4448@gmail.com or 402-708-4270 for more information.

Olivia McGinnis-Taylor Outstanding Eighth Grade Player of the Year



In 2014 the Westside Warrior Girls Basketball Club established the Olivia McGinnis-Taylor Outstanding Eighth Grade Player of the Year award. The award is named in honor of Olivia McGinnis-Taylor who passed away suddenly and unexpectedly on July 4, 2013. Olivia played in our program during her 5th grade and 6th grade seasons. She had just completed 6th grade at Rockbrook Elementary and would have attended Westside Middle School.

Among other criteria, the Olivia McGinnis-Taylor Outstanding Eighth Grade Player of the Year award recognizes one or more 8th grade players that maintained high practice and game attendance, is highly coachable and a good teammate, demonstrates a high level of basketball skill, and played in the club for at least three seasons.
