Wilson Youth Basketball Association was formed in the summer of 2008 by long-time community youth basketball coaches interested in creating a stronger Wilson area youth basketball program.
The men’s and women’s coaching staff of Wilson High School provides clinics for our coaches so that our program emphasizes fundamentals and develops players with the potential to play basketball in high school and beyond.
Our Association works closely with the Portland Interscholastic League (PIL) Middle School Sports program that is fostering the development of stronger youth programs across the Portland school district. Our top 6th, 7th and 8th grade Boys and Girls teams will play in this league against other high school cluster areas.
Additionally, we offer a competitive Player Development Program for 4th and 5th grade tournament teams, and a recreational basketball program for 3rd grade teams through Portland Parks & Recreation.
And now in its 2nd year is Wilson Future - a grassroots 1st and 2nd grade coed after-school hoops program.
Our Association comprises approximately 30 teams per season with nearly 300 boys and girls participating at various age levels and skill levels.
The Wilson Youth Basketball Association Board of Directors, many of whom have coached teams in the program, includes former college and high school players. Collectively, our Board has over 50 years of experience coaching youth basketball. In addition, the Board actively recruits other coaches in the community to join them in the effort to create a consistent and strong basketball program that emphasizes fundamental skills and good sportsmanship. If you are interested in coaching, please check out the Volunteer section of this website.
