This is the 22nd year for our basketball program and we want everyone to understand what the program is all about as well as meet other parents. We ask that both parents and their child be in attendance.

This mandatory meeting is an opportunity for all Jr. Vikes Teams (boys and girls) and parent(s) to get together and share what is ahead for the program. In addition, we will discuss how the program is benefiting your child as well as WLA. Our Mission

Coaches will be
collecting fees before family huddle night. This year our Fundraising will be available as a CASH & Carry Event.

Jr Vikes Teams Formation Day
Teams Formation Day is simply a "sign-up" day to play Jr Vikes Basketball. Our goal is to get an accurate count of how many kids are interested in playing and getting them on a team.

Friendships

Friends and Fellowship

One of the earliest goals for our programs was to give kids from the WLA Federation an opportunity to meet each other before the first day High School. Playing basketball is a team sport and kids need to learns to work with other players. To have true success, one needs to learn to care about their teammates - bonds that can create lifetime friendships.
" I formed some great friendships with other parents as our sons played basketball. What a blessing! "

Seize The Moment

In life as in basketball, we need to seize the moment and take advantage of the opportunity. Every time our Jr Vikes team has possession of the ball it is an opportunity to take a shot and score. Each possession is so valuable, it can dictate a win or a loss..

In Life, When The Ball Is In Your Hands

Take Advantage Of The Opportunity!
