Evaluations, Player Draft and Season:

Instructional and Rookie Divisions: This division runs as part-clinic and part game as the coaches teach kids the most basic fundamentals of Basketball.   

All Other Age Groups:  Players in all other age groups must attend ONE evaluation session.  These will be held at an East Windsor school district gym.

Team drafts will take place and is open to coaches only.  This is a recreational league, and we use the evaluation and draft process to try and assemble teams of equal physical ability. 

We also view basketball as a way to meet new friends.  As a result, we do not accept requests to be placed with specific coaches or other players.  Each team may have up to two coaches, and each coach will automatically get his/her son/daughter in the draft.

HEWYBL basketball typically draws players from Cranbury, East Windsor, Hightstown and surrounding towns.

Game and Practice Schedule

Games will start in December and will run through the championship games by early March.  Cadet, Junior, JV and Varsity division will play a double elimination playoff series (every team makes the play-offs). The regular season game schedule will depend on how many players sign up. 

Practice Schedule

Teams typically practice once per week for an hour-and-fifteen minutes at an East Windsor School district gym.

Make-up Games

Make-up games, if necessary, will be held on an open weekday or on Sunday afternoon.


HEWYBL will provide each player with:

  • A reversible HEWYBL basketball team jersey

You need to provide:

  • Shorts/Athletic Pants
  • Basketball sneakers  


HEWYBL is a non-profit organization run 100 percent by volunteers.  Each family is expected to donate at least one hour of time to help out during the season.  We are looking for volunteers to lead the following efforts this fall:

  • Coaches and Assistant Coaches
  • Division Heads
  • Evaluations
  • Scorebook
  • Clock Operation
