Practice Days and Times:

ATTENTION: Unfortunately we cannot provide specific practice gym times, days and locations etc. at the time of or before your registration.

You should be prepared to practice between 5:00 pm and 9:00 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 while the older players are slotted in the later time slots.

 

Age Categories & Fees

 

Please Note:

You will be charged a 17$ Alberta Basketball Membership fee this year before you can submit the registration (via credit card only). You will still need to pay the package fee (such as 295$ for U13/U15s) however your account will show less owing (package price minus the 17$ membership fee). You will still need to pay the 295$ NOT what is showing on your RAMP account.  

Please contact us if you have any questions or would like to know how much you owe. We apologize for this confusion. 

 


U7 -  Players born in 2014 & 2015 or U9- Players born in 2012 & 2013

Registration Fee: $150 (Early Bird Pricing) or $175 (Regular Fee) + 17$ Alberta Basketball Fee

The U7 and U9 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 U7 and U9 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 shirt which they get to keep and will participate in a year end EYBA Jamboree in Edmonton.
