The intramural program, also known as REC Basketball, is open to every Walpole child registered regardless of skill level.

This program is the foundation of the entire WYBA program in that, because children develop physically, socially and emotionally at different rates, a child has the opportunity to play and develop skills and confidence without the stress and pressure of travel programs.

Teams are selected via draft with the intent of developing equal competition throughout all levels.  Every team practices throughout the season for 1 hour on Saturdays with games on Sundays (or vice versa).

This program begins the first weekend in December and concludes the first weekend of March. Those children participating in the intramural (REC) program must attend a 60-minute clinic in November.  These clinics are required even for those children who may have tried out for a travel team but were not selected.

Travel Basketball

Girls & Boys Grades 3-8

This is an extremely competitive program designed for those children interested in a higher level of competition.  This program runs from approx.  October 15 – March 15.  Every team practices twice weekly for 90 minutes per practice with games on Sundays.  There is an additional fee for participating in this program, which will be outlined in the registration material.

Travel teams will consist of between 10 or 12 players per team.  The board of directors reserves the right to review and adjust team roster sizes as it sees fit.  With many kids trying out, it is a very difficult task selecting a team.  Mistakes can be made; however, with the experienced coaching staff and selection committees, they do the best job they can.  Bear in mind, everyone involved is a volunteer.

Eligibility for Metrowest teams:

Boys and Girls in grades 3 – 8 are eligible to tryout for a Metrowest team.  Boys and Girls in 3rd grade will tryout for the 4th grade team while all other grades field teams at the appropriate level.

You must be a resident of Walpole to have your child tryout for this program.

High School Rec

Boys Grades 9-12

The High School Recreation league is open to all Walpole Resident Non-JV and Non-Varsity Players. Players on the Freshmen high school team can play.

Boys High School Rec Program

The Walpole Boys High School Rec Program is the best REC League in the State and we are proud to keep the tradition alive. Colleges dream of this type of REC Program

The High School rec clinic will take place in December and the season will start in January. Specific dates are TBD and will be posted once they are finalized.

Girls High School Rec Program

Due to low enrollment, there will not be a Girls High School Rec Program for the current season. However, we encourage freshman to register and play with a larger and more robust 7/8/9 division!
