Evaluations are held each year to assist the high school coaching staff with team placement. The coaches utilize evaluations, summer camps, skill sessions, prior year play, previous coaches input, 5,000 make participation and other experiential data to determine team placement for each athlete. Team placement and team makeup is determined by the high school coaching staff based on several variables. Each grade is evaluated to determine team makeup. Waunakee traditionally participates in both the Badger Development League (BDL) and the Tri-County League (TC). Each league has a separate purpose and teams are placed in the league that provides the greatest opportunity for team and individual development.
3rd graders will participate in several group practices following evaluations prior to team placement. We understand that many 3rd graders are ready for competitive 5 on 5 basketball. However, some 3rd graders are not and would be best served focusing on skill development through other available programs.
Due to time and gym constraints, evaluations can only be held one night each fall. We always try to avoid conflicts with other events but it is an impossible task. Every year, a number of athletes are not able to participate in the evaluations. Often, the coaching staff is aware of the athletes abilities from other experiences and places them appropriately.
The Waunakee Hoops Club provides community members a quality, structured youth basketball program. We foster the development of fundamentals, discipline and teamwork in a positive, caring and safe environment for learning. All participants will be provided the opportunity to learn and compete while knowledgeable leaders will promote the philosophies and principles of community, character and sportsmanship. League and tournament championships are positive outcomes from hard work but is not the goal of our program. Our goal is to deliver a large number of highly capable young men to the high school staff focused on continuing The Kee tradition of Badger North championships and competing for state titles.
