The Fort Wayne Basketball League is a recreational level league where young basketball players can learn to love basketball and compete, while building confidence and developing the proper skills.
The FWBL is for boys in 3rd-8th grade, and all registrants will attend our Preview Nights on the evening of Oct. 30th and Nov. 1st. All teams will then be formed through a draft after our Preview Nights take place. The coaches can evaluate their current abilities and we can create as balanced and competitive teams as we can. These preview nights will be led by the University of Saint Francis coaching staff, Club1 staff, and parent volunteer coaches. For more information email us at [email protected]. Register by October 29th.
