Ballin' in the Willow


Welcome to Ballin In The Willow

Building community through positive programs for our youth.


The 2014 Season is Starting June 17th! 

Meeting every Tuesday (weather cooperating) 
for the next 6 weeks and ending in early August. 
 We start each week at 5:00pm.

Registration: Just show up!

In it's 10th year of operation, the program is bound to be bigger and better than years past. The New West Willow Neighborhood Association (NWWNA) teams up with the Washtenaw County Sheriff's Office to make this summer the best tournament yet.



What is Ballin' in the Willow, you ask?

Ballin' in the Willow (BITW) is a free, sixt week, 3-on-3 basketball tournament that was created for the young people of the West Willow community. Every summer West Willow Park is the battleground as we search for "The Best in the West".

BITW was designed so that the individual, the team, the one-time participant, or the full eight week participant could take part and still benefit equally. All you need to do is show up on Wednesday with a team of three and play until you lose twice. 

Each week is a tournament by itself, but in order to be the "Best In The West" you have got to be willing to compete throughout the entire summer.

Every time you win you ear on point. The more wins you have the more points you earn. At the end of the summer we take all of your points from the entire summer and add them up to see who comes out on top. 

You can have a different team each week but choose wisely. Because in order to win you've got to have a good team but in order to become the "Best in the West" you've got to be the person with the most points.
