Celebrating 24 Years of Youth Basketball

We are celebrating our 24th year of providing basketball to our youth. What started off as a way to join our youth together before attending Winnebago Lutheran Academy has turned into a very successful youth program.

Acquire & Improve Abilities

The great thing about basketball is that it can teach so many life lessons to our youth. Everything will not always go your way. There will be both wins and losses. If you use and develop your God given talents to the best of your ability and learn the lessons along the way, you will come out a winner.
Skills We Try to Develop
  • Leadership
  • Christian Sportsmanship
  • Perseverance
  • Unselfish Team Play

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 learn 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!
