2018 Spring League:
BCB will have 3 divisions this season for boys and girls – Mini (grades 4-6), Bantam ( grades 7-8), and Midget (grades 9-12).
Players from around the island will be placed on a team in accordance to their geographical area. There are no tryouts.
South(Port Hawkesbury/Strait area)
North (Ingonish/Cabot area)
North West (North Sydney, Sydney Mines, Baddeck
East (Glace Bay, New Waterford and in between)
Central (Greater Sydney area).
If there are players from a particular area that exceeds a single team roster, a second team will be added. Players will then be evaluated and placed on a team with the goal of achieving two competitive teams.
All teams will practice at least once a week and will play a 10 game schedule, plus playoffs. All teams make playoffs and are ranked based on the regular season schedule. Practice locations will be determined by the number of teams registered and coaches. Games will be played in a mini tournament format. Teams will play five weekend days either Saturday or Sunday. They will play 2 games on game day at the same location. For example. if all five areas have teams in a certain division – then one week the South will host all teams that day in a tournament format and the next week it could be Central hosting all teams in a tournament format. Teams will typically play a game, incur a break and play the second game the same day. The host team would typically play the first game and the last game in order to open and close the facility.
Player selection to a team will not consider friend connections or transportation. However, families registering multiple players can certainly request for siblings to be placed on the same team.
Registration fees will be $175.00 for mini and bantam divisions and $200.00 for Midget players. All players will receive a reversible BCB jersey. Registration and subsequent jersey orders cannot be completed until fees are paid in full. The registration deadline is March 19th in order to have jerseys in time for league play.
Payments can be e-transferred to firstname.lastname@example.org. BCB also accepts cash or cheque which can be dropped off at Centennial Arena at designated times. A 10% family discount will once again be offered this year. When e-transferring, please add your player’s name to the message.
Thank You and Hope to see you on the Court!
