THE SEASON AND DIVISIONS
  • The basketball season runs from the last week of September to early March. 
  • Practices are held in northeast Edmonton school gyms on week nights between 6pm and 10pm. Breaks in the schedule will occur when school gymnasiums are closed for long weekends and school events.

9U Division

  • 9U basketball starts the last week of September and runs thru to March depending on the availability of school gyms that we use for the program.
  • 1 hour practices are usually held on Monday nights, based on gym allocations and coach availability. This schedule will be available in late September.
  • There are no regular games at this level - the focus is on skill development. The first half of the program will be spent on skill development, and then progress to game type experience in the second half of the program in preparation for the year end EYBA tournament.
  • The season wraps up with a 9U tournament in March.

Community Division: 11U - 18U

  • All players are eligible to play in the community program and will be placed on a team in mid to late September.

    • Community division games are generally played on Saturdays (occasionally Friday evenings or Sunday morning). 
    • Teams will be re-seeded by EYBA several times during league play.
    • Regular season games will be followed by play-offs in March.
  • The 18U program is broken up into 2 seasons (Fall and Winter), as players may not play for a community league winter season, and their high school senior basketball team at the same time.

Competitive Division (Tier 1 and 2): 13U and 15U only

  • Evaluations will usually occur in late August to create the teams. All players are welcome to attend evaluations.
