Westview Girls Youth Development Program (YDP)

We are a parent-run organization formed to provide a more competitive option to recreational Basketball within the Westview High School boundries 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!


GO C.A.T.S.!

Confidence.  Ability.  Toughness.  Support.



Gear Store

The Gear Store is now open for a limited time! 

The store will close on November 23rd so we can get the items in by Dec 7th. 

Sorry about the tight timeline!  This is where you can order your Westview gear, such as the Shooter Shirt.  

Please note the Shooter Shirt is optional, but it's our most popular item - most girls who have played in previous seasons have one.  We highly recommend personalizing them with their last name (this especially helpful when girls forget them on the bench).  For those new to the shirt, the girls wear them during warm-ups before games.

Cost is $13.39 + $4.00 to personalize.  

You can access the Gear Store on the navigation bar above.

This year, we limited the number of items available for sale.  We wanted to focus on our most popular items.  If there's an item that's missing that you are interested in, please let us know so we can consider it in the future.

Team Jerseys

...and the winner is...  White/Navy!  What?  The website clearly shows more votes for Red/Navy!  The winner of the Jersey contest is White/Navy and was determined by the live poll performed at the jersey fitting.   Sorry about the confusion, we wanted to make sure the girls got their say on what they wanted to wear...


We have started the order process and we expect them in by early December due to the holiday rush.  We hope to get them out before our first tournament.


Team Socks

Really appreciate the interest level for the socks.  I'm waiting on the vendor to let us know if this is still happening.  When I get confirmation, I will be sending out an order form.  Please stay tuned!


Shooter Shirts and Team-branded Apparel

We are finalizing the MyTPrint site so we can order Shooter Shirts and other swag such as hoodies, shirts, etc.  The window to order will be very tight to get them delivered by first week of December.  We are targeting November 23rd as the deadline to get orders in.  More to come on this over the next few days including links/order forms, etc...


Tournament/League Schedules

We are in the process of submitting our tournament and league applications.  Once we get confirmation from the organizers, each coach will add the dates to the schedule.

Team Socks For winter 2018

These funky but stylish socks will only be available this winter season 2018.  Please fill out the Power Poll so we can figure out how many to order!  They'll be about $12 to $19.00 depending on how many we order.  If you like em we can order multiples!

Area Camps and Basketball Resources

Here you will find links from Basketball Camps and Leagues around the area.  Posting information here is to provide resources for players to improve their game!  You are not obligated to participate in any of the camps but we would encourage everyone to check these out to see if it's a good fit.  We do 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 worth mentioning!
