There will be an evaluation camp to determine 'A' & 'B' division players AND the rest of the teams that will be put together. These sessions will be held during the 2nd week of September (two dates per team) and dates will be posted on the website.
Players MUST be registered prior to the evaluations.
Teams play in the EYBA's 'A' & 'B' division; boys games are on Tuesdays while girls games are on Wednesdays. Games will also be played on some Thursday nights.
Coaches will take a minimum of 10 players with a maximum of 12-13. Teams practice 1.5-2 hours once per week, with possibility of additional practices.
Player commitment is a must! The 'A' & 'B' division is strongly recommended to those that have basketball listed as their #1 sport. There may be additional tournaments entered at the coaches' discretion with the chance to play in the provincial tournament in March.
Season runs from October to March (time off at Christmas).

**IMPORTANT INFORMATION REGARDING AGE/DIVISION**
It is EYBA's policy that NO over-aged players are allowed in any division. Regardless of how close a player may be to a lower division, under any circumstances NO playing down is allowed. However, players may MOVE UP to play with players older than them, but this has to be determined by SBA and division/team availability. Priority will be given to players that are within the exact age group of their registered team/division.
**ALL CHEQUES payable to STRATHCONA BASKETBALL ASSOCIATION or simply SBA. Credit cards are accepted. Registration will be open until end of September, unless SBA needs to cap its registration membership due to too many participants and/or not enough Coaches. In that case, some divisions may close sooner than others. FOR SBA'S REFUND POLICY, CLICK HERE. **
