Superintendent Jane Shamieh and Board of Education President Shelley Dally presented Board member Nolan Sullivan with an award of appreciation for his years of service on the VUSD Board. Mr. Sullivan has a long history of serving students, not only as a Board member, but as the Chief Organizer for Measure A, the President of the Vacaville Public Education Foundation (VPEF) the Chair of Loop the Lagoon charity run and more. Nolan did not run for re-election so that he could spend more time with his young family, but we expect he will continue to have a strong and positive presence in our community. Thank you Nolan for all that you do.


The goal of this league is to introduce boys and girls to basic offensive and defensive fundamentals, while also helping to develop an enthusiasm for the game of basketball, good sportsmanship, and a positive attitude.  All participants will receive instruction, games, and a t-shirt.  Leagues are co-ed and will be divided into three groups, kindergarten and 1st graders in one, 2nd and 3rd graders in another and 4th graders through 6th graders in the other group.  K-3rd grader’s games and practices will be played on 8 ½-ft. baskets.  4th thru 6th graders will play on regulation baskets. Each Saturday, the teams will have a thirty-minute practice session, followed by a thirty-minute game.  The WCW Coaching Staff will organize these practices and the drills will be facilitated by our high school players and coaches.  The league will be supervised and officiated by the WCW Basketball Coaching Staff and WCW Basketball Players will coach the teams.  This format offers an opportunity to begin building relationships between our coaches/players and the young people in our community.  Teams will be made up according to grade level and school.  All practices & games will be on Saturdays at WCW.  Over the four weeks, we believe that your child will improve their basketball skills and also have a lot of fun.  We hope to see you for a great year of Junior Wildcat Basketball.
