 Registration info for the 2019-20 Season

Online Registration for the fall/winter season opens soon.

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. at the time of or before your registration as we will not receive all of our gym assignments until Mid to late September, 2019.

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).

MITES Registration Fee: $165.00

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.

Practices: once per week (Sunday to Friday) for 1hr or 1.5 hrs. Same day and time and location every week.
