What is the WBBL Basketball Season?

 

Known by most as the WBBL,  our league is over 50 years old and is considered one of the top youth sports organizations in the Southeast. All players make a team and all players play in each game.

Our regular season runs during the normal basketball season: teams are put together in October, while games (and practices) take place in November, December, and January. 15-18 year olds finish their regular season in early February.

Each WBBL age group averages 25 teams, so games can be scheduled with similarly skilled teams. (5-6 year olds and girls league will have fewer teams).

Having such large groups of Rec teams for age groups 11-12, 13-14, and 15-18 is very rare and we are proud to be able to offer excellent team sports for kids.

All games are played in big gyms with lots of seating; High Schools or Middle School gyms around West Knoxville. The big arenas allow plenty of seating without fans sitting on top of each other.

City Tournament

February is the City of Knoxville Parks and Recreation City Championship Tournaments for each age group. Some players may choose for their season to be over after the late January WBBL Championship Tournaments, but many players want their season to go another couple of weeks, so they try out for a WBBL City Tournament team. In most age groups, the WBBL sends 2-5 teams to the City Championships. We work to find a team for every player that wants the City Tournament experience.
