Coach Selection

How are coaches selected?
All coaches must complete an on-line application and code of conduct form. Background checks will be completed, and coaching applications will be reviewed by the Board. Coach placements will be determined after player placements have been finalized.

How many coaches per team?
Each team will have one head coach and no more than two assistant coaches.

Are any coaches known in advance of evaluations?
Only one coach has been assigned a position in advance of evaluations. Mike Fulton, WBC Coaching Coordinator, will assume the head-coach position for the 8th grade Black team which is the team identified to compete in higher-competition tournaments. All other coaches will be determined after player placements onto teams.

Team Formation

How teams are formed?
Teams are formed primarily from the data received from the two days of skills evaluations and the first two days of practice. Evaluators will review player results and provide player placement recommendations by player number. Similarly, coaches from the first two days of practice will review player skill levels and provide player placement recommendations. The WBC Board will take all gathered information, including player placement recommendations under advisement when placing players onto teams. Initial placements will occur using player numbers from evaluations, not player names.  Upon review, additional feedback from a player’s coaches from a prior season may or may not be solicited. All player placement recommendations, including suggested team sizes, will be reviewed by the Board prior to being finalized.

How many teams are formed per grade?
The number of teams formed and team size will be dependent on player registration numbers. Typically, there are one to three teams per grade level.

Are all players placed on a team?
The Club’s philosophy is to place all registered players who have paid their registration fees and also attended the two days of evaluations and the first two days of practices onto a team. However, the Club reserves the right to make player cuts in the event registration numbers warrant such cuts. Players will not be placed onto a team until registration fees have been paid.

Who approves the player placements and teams?
All player placement recommendations, as well coaching placements and team size, will be reviewed and approved by the WBC Board before finalized. Individual board members will not participate in any discussions relating to their individual player placements.

When are player placements announced?
Upon finalization by the Board, player placements and teams will be posted on the WBC website.
