EQUIPMENT REQUIRED

Every player in U11 - U18 requires the following marked items to play basketball:

  • Shorts (a navy NEBA team short is included in your NEBA registration - Nike, Adidas, school team shorts are not appropriate attire)
  • Inside runners appropriate for basketball, with non-marking soles
  • If a player wants to wear a t shirt under their jersey it should be white to match the NEBA uniform
  • Marked water bottle available for their personal use
  • A bag to store players equipment for games and practices is recommended

Team jerseys and the shorts will be provided to the coaches when they pick up their equipment.  Additional shorts may be purchased from the NEBA executive thru the playing season.  Uniforms and shorts sizing information is available on this website, or they can be done at the AGM/registration night.  Bring your child to the registration if you do not know what size uniform they require.  

 

GAMES AND PRACTICES 

The Basketball Season - U11 thru U18

Practices start the last week of September.  The season will start the first week of October and runs until the first weekend prior to spring break.  Practices are held one night during the week Monday thru Friday.  Community program games are generally played on Saturdays, and occasionally Friday evenings or Sunday morning.  The A/B program games are on weekdays.  Games are played in Edmonton, and surrounding area.  Breaks in the schedule will occur when school gymnasiums are closed for long weekends and school events.  Parents are responsible to get their child to and from practices and games.     

The Basketball Season - U9

U9 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. Practices are held one night a week, based on gym allocations and coaches availability. The season wraps up with a U9 tournament.

Other gymnasiums and dates may be available depending on what is made available to our organization for this upcoming season.

If a player is unable to attend a game or practice, please remember to let your coach know as soon as possible. 

 

PARENTAL VOLUNTEER COMMITMENT - Bingos, Casinos, other opportunities

For each family registered in the U9-U18 program, parents are required to fulfill a volunteer commitment.  A list of available commitments is posted on the website.  A cheque or credit card hold for $300.00 at the time of registration is required to ensure you complete your volunteer hours.  Please date the cheque for the day of your commitment. If you cannot make the activity you have chosen, it is your responsibility to find your replacement. Your cheque will be returned after you complete your activity. Bingos are all held at Kensington Bingo Hall starting at 5pm. Volunteers for casinos and bingos must be 18 years of age.

Please see details on the Parental Volunteer Commitment HERE.

 

Children will not be placed on a team or provided a practice date until all required documents are provided, and registration fees are paid in full.

 

KidSport Policy

Complete a KidSport application and bring to the registration/AGM.  The NEBA Executive Director will forward it directly to KidSport for payment.  KidSport will provide up to $250.00 per season for a child to participate in a sporting program.  As a parent you will still be required to work your volunteer effort for NEBA.  (If KidSport is unable to provide funding, please speak with the Executive Director about other funding sources).

Refund Policy

There will be an automatic fee of $30.00 applied against the registration fee paid.  Refunds will only be processed until the first week of the regular season after which no refunds will be made.  Requests for refunds must be made in writing. 

 

Post dated Cheque Policy

NEBA will accept post dated cheques only if no other form of payment is available, and is approved by the Executive Director, the President or Treasurer.  Cheques are not always deposited on the post dated date.  It is the parent's responsibility to ensure that the funds are in the account from the date the cheque is written for, until it is deposited by the treasurer. These will be accepted for payment but must be paid in full by October 31.
