We welcome players of all levels in all divisions. We are pleased to offer House League and Competitive Divisions.
Players will receive further communications in September on the season start-up and sort-out schedules.
House League Details
League runs from October to April/May. Official start of the league is Nov 1.
All house league players will have one practice and one game per week. Practices will always be at the same time/day/gym weekly, unless there is a gym cancellation by the school. Game day will always be on the same day for the duration of the season for each house league division, schedule released usually in advance.
All house league divisions will enjoy divisional year-end tournaments at the end of the season.
Competitive League Details
League runs from October to April/May. In the past the format as been tri-meets every couple of weeks.
Sort-Outs and Team Balancing
Depending on the number of players registered, there may be sort outs at the beginning of the season to ensure the teams are balanced. This should be expected to start in mid to late September.
Friend requests are only considered at U10 and cannot be guaranteed.
Coaches will communicate with their teams once sort-outs are completed notifying them of the practice gym, night and time.
Teams will have at least 1 practice with their final roster before their first games.
All teams are guaranteed 20* games through out the season, including both regular season play and their divisional year end tournament.
NO practices or games during School Holiday Breaks (including Christmas, Family Day weekend, March break or Easter)
*this has been the norm in past years. We will know more once schedules are released
If you have any questions, please contact our Naismith Registrar
Frequently Asked Questions
1. How do I know which division to register for?
Review the age categories tab before registering. If you choose to register for competitive and your child does not make the team, you will receive a credit back of $200 (less a $25 administration fee).
2. When will I know which night my practice will be?
We don't know this at this time. Until coaches are found and assigned, it comes down to the coaches availability and gym space.
3. My child is involved in multiple sports, how can I make sure that there are no conflicts?
The basketball season is long and we understand there will be conflicts. If the chosen night does not work for your child, you will be offered a refund up to a certain date (less a $25 administration fee).
4. When my child does have a conflict, will this be OK?
Please advise your coach of any conflicts as they will need to be aware. They plan their practices according to the number of players and games they never want to be surprised and be short of players.
5. Do you accept friend requests?
We do try for the U10 division, however we can not guarantee this. We do need to ensure that the teams are balanced and it is a great opportunity to meet new faces!
