We had an INCREDIBLE summer, with lots of very sucessful events and programs. Our 2-day camps were a huge success and allowed players to work on sport specific skills. Our Firm Foundation Clinics gave kids a chance to learn the fundamentals of basketball and volleyball. Our Jon Smith Memorial showcase tournament had a great turnout and provided incoming school teams a chance to play a ton of volleyball in a tw0-day period. Our basketball tournaments (2 of which are coming up in September) were a great way for local teams to get more playing opportunities. Also, our AYSA Summer Basketball and Volleyball Leagues were a great segue into our Fall Leagues, which are starting up shortly!

Abilene Northern LL – no September update
(Jane Long, Martinez, Ortiz)
“We have finally wrapped up our Spring season and wanted to say Thank You to everyone for sticking with us through all the ups and downs that this season brought. With the end of a successful Spring season finally arriving, we’ve received a lot of questions about Fall Ball. We’d like nothing more than to give our kids the opportunity to play this fall, however, we don’t feel like it is in the best interest of the league and our WLL families to do so. Therefore, WLL will not be participating in Fall Ball this year.”
(pulled from FB post on August 4th)
“It looks like our normal District 5 fall ball that we are used to participating in will not happen this year. We are looking at some different options at the moment, but we could use some input on how many players would want to play.”
