West Coast Basketball League
The West Coast Pro Basketball League’s (WCBL) primary goal was to provide exciting, quality, professional basketball and affordable family entertainment to local fans during the spring months of April, May and June. The primary focus was to assist mid-size communities in developing outstanding, profitable organizations that are built on stable management, skilled players, quality coaches and sound business practices.
The goal of the WCBL was to establish high level professional basketball teams and family entertainment in mid-sized, west coast communities which do not have convenient access to professional sports.
The WCBL was a 20-game league schedule running through the months of April, May and June, prior to the beginning of both the NBA summer league in July and the European professional leagues in August and September. This strategy allowed all players without NBA contracts to play in the WCBL and prepare themselves to play in other professional leagues. The WCBL was considered to be the most cost efficient professional development league in existence!
The schedule was constructed so that each team would play two games per weekend: one at home and one on the road. The games were played at small or mid-sized venues such as local community colleges or a high school gyms with seating capacities of 900-1800 spectators.
The league featured 8 teams from the West Coast of the United States. Below are the different standings from each season along with a list of stat leaders.
