2018-19 REGISTRATION INFO


 Registration info for the 2018-19 Season

Online Registration for the fall/winter season opens July 6 and will close at midnight on August 26, 2018.

Registrations will be taken through our online registration portal tab on our homepage.

 

Practice Days and Times:

ATTENTION ALL PARENTS: Unfortunately we cannot provide specific practice gym times, days and locations etc. when or before you register as we will not receive our gyms until Mid to late September.

You should be prepared to practice between 5:00 pm and 10:00 pm from Monday to Friday. We will do our best to accommodate all players, but our first commitment is to the coach's schedule.

We typically schedule younger age groups for the earlier time slots (5-8pm) while the older players are slotted in the later time slots (8-10pm).

 

Age Categories & Fees

MITES 1 (U7)- Players born in 2012 & 2013 / MITES 2 (U9)- Players born in 2010 & 2011

The Mites Program is designed with an emphasis on developing basic skills in a non-competitive environment. A smaller, lighter ball is used at this level so players can develop confidence in their passing and catching skills and shooting the ball to the height of the basket.

The Mites program is specifically designed for players trying basketball for the first time. Sessions are traditionally mixed (boys and girls together) and players will participate in practice sessions once per week. No official league games are played however, small inter-group games are a part of each practice session. These inter-group games focus on skill development while keeping it fun for the kids. The kids receive a jersey and ball at the start of the season, which they get to keep.
