2020 Season Update June 26th:
The WBA has decided not to have a league season this summer. We had delayed our decision as we were hopeful sites would start to open up. That of course has not happened and we don't see it happening within the next two weeks. However, we have granted teams the option of playing an independent schedule if they choose. We look forward to returning in 2021! In the meantime everyone stay safe and healthy during the remainder of 2020.
