Welcome! We are a parent-run non profit 501(c)(3) organization formed to provide a more competitive option to recreational basketball within the Westview High School boundaries of Portland, Oregon.
Our goal is to develop youth athletes in a safe and competitive environment. We collaborate closely with Westview High School's girls coaches to help prepare girls grades 5th to 8th to play high school basketball.
Our organization consists of highly dedicated parent board members, volunteer coaches, High School coaches, and passionate community volunteers!
Our program is successful when we receive strong support from the community. If you are interested in joining in any capacity or if you want to make donations, please contact us - information is below!
PLEASE CHECK BACK OFTEN FOR THE LATEST INFORMATION!
Confidence. Ability. Toughness. Support.
We hope you all are staying safe and well during this incredibly unsettling time. Over the coming weeks and months, our hope is that our communities are able to get back connected to activities they enjoy together, including more opportunities for open gyms -- check out the June Camp hosted by our very own High School Coaches & Players...details & registration forms above!
Since our umbrella organization, the Metro Youth Development Program, uses BSD school gyms for practice we are carefully following the facility re-opening progress with OSAA, the school district as well as guidance from the Oregon Health Authority.
Although the COVID-19 pandemic has forced the closure and cancellation of many things, some basketball programs are still hoping to be able to host events this summer. Linked below are several organizations in our local area--please check their refund policies carefully as you consider what feels comfortable for your family.
Please contact us if you know of any local basketball options we have not yet posted...Hope to see you all back on the courts very soon....GO CATS!
Here you will find links to Basketball Camps and Leagues around the area. Posted information is intended to provide resources for players to improve their game! You are not obligated to participate in any of the camps but we encourage everyone to check these out to see if it's a good fit.
*Note: WGYB does not receive any payments for advertising, but we will highlight programs that are willing to provide discounts or sponsor our program - we will let you know if that is the case. Also, please share if there's a camp or another local opportunity worth mentioning!
