West Side Basketball is one of 18 franchises in the Kanawha Valley Youth Basketball League (KVYBL). At the end of each franchise’s regular season, the franchise selects its 10 best 2nd, 3rd, 4th, 5th and 6th/7th graders (age restrictions apply) to hit the road and compete against other franchises in the KVYBL. The season ends with a KVYBL All-Star Tournament for each grade group.

In order to compete in the KVYBL All-Star Season and Tournaments, franchises must abide by the KVYBL eligibility requirements. There are many, but the basics are as follows:

  • Live where you play. Each student participant must be enrolled in a school in a franchise’s area.
  • Once a student has played for a franchise, he or she continues to play for that franchise. If a student relocates from one season to the next, he or she must still play for his or her original franchise … if it is within reasonable driving distance. Students who have relocated will be permitted to play for another franchise if he or she does not participate in the KVYBL All-Stars for one season.
  • Student participants must be in the grade level they are playing in. They are permitted to play up a grade level, but never down.
  • Age requirements are as follows:
    • Third grade players cannot have reached age 10 before August 1, (year that school starts). They may participate on a 4th, 5th or 6th grade team.
    • Fourth grade players cannot have reached age 11 before August 1, (year that school starts). They may participate on a 5th or 6th grade team.
    • Fifth grade players cannot have reached age of 12 before August 1, (year that school starts). They may participate on a 6th grade team.
    • Sixth/Seventh grade players cannot have reached the age of 13 respectively before August 1, (year that school starts).
