About Us

Western Loudoun Basketball League (WLBL) is an instructional youth basketball league intended for the enjoyment of the game of basketball for all players, not just the few that excel at the game. Should parents seek a higher level of competition, they should seek out a local AAU program to accommodate their needs. This league is designed to teach each individual the fundamentals of basketball, passing, dribbling, shooting and defense.

The Western Loudoun Basketball League is a youth organization comprised of registered members, Board members, coaches and parents. It exists to enable the youth of its member organizations to learn, grow, and develop skills via basketball competition by playing on their neighborhood teams. The administrators, coaches, parents, and spectators should never lose focus that the main objective is to promote sportsmanship, integrity, and fairness that serves the best interests of the overall majority of the children who participate in our program. 

The purposes of the League shall be to implant firmly in the youth of the community the ideals of good sportsmanship, honesty, loyalty, and courage, so that they may be well adjusted, strong, and happy, and may grow to be good, clean, healthy, and trustworthy citizens.

The purposes will be achieved by teaching basketball fundamentals, and providing supervised related activities. The supervisors shall bear in mind that the attainment of exceptional athletic skill or the winning of games is secondary, and that molding future citizens is of prime importance.
