Players will be evaluated by High School Head Coach Damon James and his staff.  Tryouts will be "closed door," and parents will not be allowed in the gym.  Please arrive 15 minutes before your scheduled time to try on uniforms and complete registration forms. 

 

Grafton Hoops policy is as follows: When there are enough boys for more than one team, the teams are split evenly (talent-wise).  The only exception is 8th grade which will be A/B format. 

 

  • 3rd through 8th grade will play in the Wisconsin Youth Basketball League (WYBL).  League games are every other Sunday, starting in November through March.  Teams will play two games on the Sundays they are scheduled to play.  This league involves our teams traveling to other schools like Germantown, Brookfield, Waukesha, Greenfield, Brown Deer, Mukwonago, and Menomonee Falls, to name a few. 

  • Each grade level will offer a tournament team option. Tournament teams will be selected by the high school coaching staff at tryouts or after the first week of practice.  Tournament team play will involve an additional expense per tournament. Teams generally participate in 5 tournaments but this is up to the head coach of each tournament team.  

 

Grafton Hoops may have non-parent coaches for 8th-grade teams. We have identified the coach(es) for the 2021-22 and 2022-23 seasons. 

 

Teams will practice two days per week at Woodview Elementary School or John Long Middle School.  Days/times are to be determined.

 

We will follow Grafton School District guidelines for masking and health protocols.

2022-23 Grafton Hoops Fees are $325 and will be invoiced roughly 10 days after tryouts.
