Cost this year is $35, which includes a basketball uniform (jersey and shorts) and participation in a fall basketball league with area towns in November and December.

The West Monona High School basketball coaches and players will be hosting basketball clinics for boys and girls in grades 1-6. This will be an excellent opportunity for players to begin to work on their skill set and for youth basketball coaches to observe some drills and activities to incorporate into their practices for the upcoming season. These will be held on Saturday mornings at the high school gym on October 28, November 4, November 11 and November 18.
First and Second Grade boys and girls will be from 8:30-9:00 am
Third and Fourth Grade boys and girls will be from 9:00-10:00 am
Fifth and Sixth Grade boys and girls will be from 10:00-11:00 am
These clinics are free of charge. Kids are welcome to attend, even if they haven't registered to participate in the youth basketball program.
The Onawa Youth Basketball Program is a volunteer, non-profit organization that aims to teach young girls and boys the fundamentals of the game of basketball, focusing on the development of team concepts, as well as individual skills. We strive to teach participants to compete at their highest level of ability, while learning to win and lose with the best of sportsmanship. We provide a safe and abuse-free environment and expect players, coaches and fans to be respectful of each other and all officials and opponents.
