At the U11 level (born 2009-2010), a player can register for the SBA EYBA (Edmonton Youth league) or alternatively register for the SBA HL program. In SBA, there is no other level/age group has this option.
There is a little more cost associated with the team playing in the EYBA for a number of reasons (EYBA's season starts 3-4 weeks earlier, EYBA charges each team a fee to enter, longer practice times, higher paid Officials, playoffs).
The EYBA is typically a larger 'house league' in that if you lived in the city of Edmonton and signed your child up for U11 basketball, EYBA is where they would be placed regardless of skill, size, experience, etc.. Games in EYBA will be in and around Edmonton, while HL games are strictly in Sherwood Park only.
For teams in HL, practices are 1-hour in length (in the Park) while teams in EYBA, practices are 1.5 hours in length (also in the Park).
If you prefer to register your child for a team that will play in the House League, you must go back to the SBA Registration webpage to link into the HL registration site.
Please note that in SBA's House League, although we do not recommend it, we would allow players to play down a level. However, in EYBA, NO over-aged players are allowed. Players can play up a level of their age group, but cannot play down.
For more help when deciding which league suits your child best, you can contact Darlene at firstname.lastname@example.org.
SPECIAL NOTES regarding the U11 GIRLS House League program:
In the past few years, the U11G HL division has struggled to get enough players to field a HL division on their own.
Last season, we had two U11G HL teams that played against the U11 Boys teams throughout the season.
It's not an ideal situation when we don't get enough girls.
The year before we had one group of girls, enough for one team and we moved them to play in the Mini/U11 EYBA league.
It all depends on how many girls register for us to determine what we can do with them.
The main thing is we don't want to cancel anybody's registration and we want to find the best scenario for all the girls to continue playing basketball.
When we were faced with a situation as such, we can offer a younger U11G to move down to U9 or any of them alternatively over to the EYBA side.
So everybody is aware, due to the history of the division, we could be in a similar situation if not enough U11 House League girls register.
See PROGRAMS (very top of page) for all details of programs, age groups, etc. You can also find FAQs at the top of the home page as well.
Any questions that you cannot find the answers to can be emailed to Darlene at the above email link.
