A Look Ahead To The 2015-16 Season

 

 2015-2016 Preview

The YGSBL will continue to field a 64 team setup (16 teams per grade level for 5th, 6th, 7th & 8th grades).  Teams that played in the YGSBL in the 2014-2015 season have the first right to return to the league for the 2015-2016 season.  (example - if you were a 5th grade team in 2014-15 and played in the YGSBL, your team has the spot reserved in the 2015-16 6th grade YGSBL.  Once a team is in the YGSBL, the league organizers do not remove that team from the league unless it is requested upon by the team itself  or unless significant issues arise.) It is rare that an opening occurs.  5th & 6th grade teams play at Waukesha South and 7th & 8th grade teams play at Waukesha West.  Team registration forms and other materials for the 2015-16 season are now posted on the Handouts page.

Game dates will be posted once they are confirmed with the Waukesha School District, typically in September.  Teams play 2 games per date with a compact rotation of play a game - sit out a game - play a game - done.  There are 8 game dates throughout the 16 game season - 7 regular season dates and 1 date for an end of the season league tournament that all teams qualify for.  Waukesha South typically plays on Sundays while Waukesha West uses a combination of Saturday afternoon/evening and Sunday dates.  This is a highly coveted league and rescheduling of games is not allowed.  Please do not book outside tournaments until the YGSBL League schedule is finalized.  Thank you for your interest and we look forward to another great season. ______________________________________________________________________________

The Official Game Schedules Are The  Ones Listed On Handouts Page 

The official schedule for the YGSBL are the games listed on the "handouts page" by grade level.  We will also list games in the schedule tab, but those game listings are only data entered to record scores and standings

Coaches Corner:

1.  Please make sure you are familiar with all the league rules, you should have a set of game rules on your bench for each game. 

2. Several Referees have commented about Head Coaches NOT following the YGSBL Seat Belt Rule. Head Coaches may only briefly stand to substitute players, call out a play or address their team.  It has been observed that many Head Coaches are standing throughout the majority of the game, this is NOT allowed.  All Assistant Coaches must be seated at all times during game play.

3. Coaches Responsibility To Have A Qualified Adult Volunteer To Manage The Game Score Book or Game Clock. It is the responsibility of each team to provide a qualified adult volunteer for each game to manage either the game clock or score book at the center table in the YGSBL.  It is the responsibilty of the coaching staff to have an adult volunteer, who understands the game and the rules, at the table prior to game start.  The items to be completed on the score sheet are: Team Names, Player Numbers, Running Score, Individual Player Points, Number of Fouls (Team and Individual), Change of Possession, Time Outs used and FINAL SCORE. This is a very important role in the administration of the league to keep accurate standings.  Thanks in advance for your cooperation.

4.  Coaches should have their own first kits with ice packs, athletic tape and other items.  The league facility rental agreements with Waukesha South and Waukesha West does not include access to training supplies.  Please be prepared to address your teams first aid needs.
