Tuscaloosa Warriors Basketball Club
Welcome to the Tuscaloosa Warriors Basketball Club (TWBC), a 501 (c) (3) not-for-profit tax exempt organization. The
TWBC is a newly formed collaboration of local youth, junior high and high school level coaches who share a common
goal, which is to provide the youth of Tuscaloosa and the surrounding areas the opportunity to learn and enjoy the game
of basketball at a highly competitive level. The TWBC will demand a high degree of moral and ethical conduct from
everyone involved, from players and coaches, to parents and volunteers. Parents, please keep in mind that the coaches are
volunteers and are not paid to coach; therefore, we ask that all coaches & volunteers be treated with respect. Teams will
be selected according to school grade, age, individual ability and attitude. Coaches have the final word on who is on their
roster. When a player is chosen, there are things that a player must do to stay on the team and practices are mandatory.
There will be no refunds if a player quits or is dismissed from a team for circumstances within their control.
In this our 3RD year in existence, we plan to fill as many teams as possible. The AAU/YBOA season will run from March
thru May for most teams. If a team qualifies for the Nationals, then their season could continue up until July if they
decide to participate. All teams must meet AHSAA requirements. The proposed teams for this season are as follows and
based on a combination of grade as of 10/1/10 and age as of August 31, 2012:
Girls – 4th/11U 5th /12U 6th/13U 7th /14U 8th/15U 9th/16U 10th/17U 11th/18U 12th/19U
Boys – 4 /11U
5th/12U 6th/13U 7th/14U 8th/15U 9th/16U 10th/17U 11th/18U 12th/19U
The total cost to participate with TWBC will vary depending age/grade level and gender. This cost does not
include the uniform cost projected at $70.00 per player, hotel costs, meals and transportation to tournaments.
$150.00 – 5th grade level and below for girls and boys.
$250.00 – 6th-8th grade level boys and 6th-11th grade level girls.
$300.00 – 9th grade level boys and above.
An initial deposit of $100 is due by February 1, 2012. Half of the remaining balance will be due by March 1st, and the
other half balance due by April 1st. Make checks or money orders payable to TWBC. If your child is selected to play
on a TWBC team, all fees are non-refundable. The fees will cover registration costs, organizational expenses, gym rentals
and at least 6 tournaments. Additional fees may result if a team decides to participate in more tournaments, but this will
be at the discretion of the individual coaches/teams. If you are interested in your child participating with the TWBC,
