SPRING LEAGUE


2020 SPRING LEAGUE SEASON: 

SBA's partners in spring/summer basketball, FROST BASKETBALL will be taking a hiatus for the 2020 spring league season.  Once their non-profit Organization is ready to roll, January 2021, we will be supporting them with their spring/summer basketball opportunity vision.  

 

Please be aware that SBA does NOT put together spring league teams, so we do NOT have open registration during this season.  We can, however, help full teams that wish to enter and if the team is in need of gym time and equipment.  From 2021 and moving forward, we will be promoting FROST as a spring 'club' option as noted above.  

 

*NEW* this year EYBA will have EYBA ELITE BASKETBALL teams in the U15 and U18 divisions in the EYBA Spring league.  For now, EYBA is looking for Coaches for the new program.  Details with regards to tryouts, etc., will follow.  Check it out HERE  

Please continue reading below...

 


 

SPRING LEAGUE GENERAL INFORMATION:

It is not recommended that new players join for the first time during the spring season.  It's best to join in the fall when teams are set up with more focus on players playing with players with similar skill sets and experience.

  • This is mainly due to the fact that there are way less teams that play in the spring, so less divisions can be made out of the teams that join up.  
  • With an (8) week, (10) game season there is less chance of ensuring teams play against teams with similar skills and experience.  
  • Sometimes there are extreme blow outs in spring league and new players can become frustrated.  
  • In winter season, there are many more teams in each age group/division with more time involved to place teams appropriately and include two seeding rounds to ensure teams play where they fit as a team.  
  • For new players, the winter season tends to be the best case scenario for their own individual success, regardless of age.


With EYBA's spring league, EYBA accepts teams from anywhere, no affiliation is necessary and teams can be set up anyway somebody wants, possibly from a first-come first served basis to a team that hosts tryouts, etc..  In SBA, because it is more difficult for individuals to book a gym, SBA is involved to help out with that.  The EYBA team fee of $1600.00 (EYBA charges) does NOT include our SBA fee of $850 that will need to be paid additionally.

 

PAYMENT TO EYBA made directly through their registration process (see below) = $1600.00 (credit card fee will apply upon making payment - please consider that when charging your individual players).  TEAM REGISTRATION NEEDS TO BE DONE BEFORE DEADLINE OF MARCH 6TH (OR DIVISION FILLS UP):  CLICK HERE to register your team OR read below note from EYBA that includes the registration link.

PAYMENT TO SBA can be e-Tranferred to sbabasketball@shaw.ca (please make the question to answer be basketball).  Credit card payments cannot be accepted for spring league entry.  Email Darlene ASAP if you have registered your team with EYBA and need a practice time/equipment with SBA ($850 per team).

For SBA, it is not the same individual registration process like the winter season.  Coaches register their teams (below) with an intent to collect their fees from their players, pay the team fee to EYBA of $1600.00.  SBA will have a cost of gym rentals, equipment rentals at $850.00.

If you are in need of uniforms, I can place an order with our Supplier, but need 2-3 weeks time to process.  You can email Darlene @ sbabasketball@shaw.ca to advise.  Jerseys are $35 each (parents can pay by e-Transfers accepted to sbabasketball@shaw.ca, answer; basketball).

ARE YOU AN INDIVIDUAL LOOKING TO BE PUT ONTO A SPRING TEAM WAIT LIST?  *YOU CAN SUBMIT THE BELOW INFORMATION.*

This is not meant to discourage individuals from joining, just that there are no guarantees placement can or will be made.  However, a running list of emails with individual player information is kept on file.  Therefore, if you wanted to be put onto my 2020 spring league list of players, you can email Darlene at sbabasketball@shaw.ca with the following information:

  • Player's Name
  • Gender
  • Date of Birth
  • Division:  U11 (2009-2010) / U13 (2007-2008) / U15 (2005-2006) / U18 (2002,2003,2004)
  • If the player would consider playing up in an older division (eg. players born in 2007 that would be currently U13/bantam, could play up in U15/midget for spring league as that is where they will place in the fall/winter season of 2020-2021).
  • NO OVER-AGED PLAYERS ARE ALLOWED.

**IMPORTANT:  Due to the very large volume of emails, please note '2020 SPRING LEAGUE' your subject line when enquiring about being put on a SL wait list.**

*NOTE:  Your individual fee will be determined by your Coach.*


 

ARE YOU A COACH IN NEED OF MORE PLAYERS?

If you are a Coach/Parent looking for players to put a team together and you cannot find enough players within your own team/group, I can connect you with other Coaches/Parents from the division you want to be involved in having a team in.  You can advise Darlene at the above email address to enquire about contacting other people to get a team put together.

SBA does NOT run its own spring league and the minimum age for EYBA's spring league is U11.  Other divisions in EYBA include U13, U15 & U18. 

  • NOTE:  U11 spring league is run with hoops at the standard 10' rims so practice times can be set up at regular hoop sized gyms in Sherwood Park as games will be with hoops at that regular height.
    • For this reason, consideration for players should be done with U11s that move up to U13 in the fall of 2020 and not as much for U11s that stay in U11 in the fall of 2020.  Of course, this is at Coaches and Parents discretion.

  

NOTE:  If you are a Coach that already has equipment/uniforms and your own practice gym time, you do not need to contact SBA.  Please proceed to register your team with EYBA as noted above.

 

EYBA LEAGUE SET UP:

EYBA sets up their spring league with as many divisions as they can have depending on how many teams enter.  Teams can be turned down if there are too many entered with not enough gym time.  Potential tiering of teams is not known until after deadline date.  More information will follow once this information is confirmed.
