This season we are excited to introduce a new travel program for 3rd graders for the 2nd half of the 2017-2018 season. Historically, our Travel Basketball program has only been available to girls entering 4th-8th grades. 3rd Grade Travel Basketball is for girls interested in an increased level of play, competition and skill development. This 3rd grade travel team will play in tournaments after the rec season ends so there is no conflict with the rec schedule.
The 3rd grade travel season is independent of the rec season. A player’s performance during the rec season will not dictate whether she makes the travel team. That will be determined by a tryout process. Many girls may not be ready for travel basketball yet. Whether or not your daughter tries out this year will not have a bearing on how teams are formed next year. Nor will it guarantee a spot on the top 4th grade team next year.

Save on preventive youth heart screening for a limited time!
Exciting News! Wayzata Girls Basketball Association (WGBA) has partnered with PraeVeni SBC (www.YouthHeartCheck.com) to make available state-of-the-art preventive youth heart screenings at a reduced cost.
The American Heart Association (AHA) recommends routine heart screenings every two years for athletes under the age of 25. WGBA is committed to the safety of your families and has chosen to further subsidize the cost for screening WGBA Players. We encourage you to consider scheduling a screening appointment for ALL your children ages 5 - 25.

Most heart problems in young people are present at birth, show now outward symptoms, and become unstable over time. Approximately 1 in every 10 children are born with a congenital heart condition, of which 30% will have moderate to severe lifelong heart risk. Over 95% of these silent heart problems have associated risk features that are detectable by a quality Echocardiographic (Ultrasound) screening test uniquely capable of identifying early structural, functional, and hemodynamic abnormalities.
PraeVeni’s Focused Echocardiographic Screening Test (FEST™) includes a risk assessment questionnaire, sequential blood pressure check, and a sensitive Echocardiographic Rule-Out test. The FEST affirms key heart and blood vessel features are NORMAL and thereby rules-out >95% of known risks associated with sudden cardiac death (SCD).
Screening tests are administered at PraeVeni’s screening center conveniently located at 6565 City West PKWY, Eden Prairie (15-minutes from Wayzata).
The screening test is simple and affordable… and can have a positive impact on you and your children for a lifetime! Register early as available times are expected to fill quickly.
