There will be a Coaches Clinic on Saturday October 1st at St. John’s Time to be determined.




All players must wear appropriate gym attire i.e. running shoes, shorts and t-shirt (game shirts will be provided at the beginning of the regular season).

During the weeks of October 15 and October 22 the players will participate in skills development sessions that are fundamental to the game of basketball.

A convenor will be assigned to each Division to oversee and coordinate the activities of that Division. The convenor is there to assist the coaches, to ensure that the players have fun while learning basketball skills and to ensure that fair play is maintained. (Note: there may be an instance where the convenor, in conjunction with the coaches, will ask a player to move to another team after the first few weeks in order to balance the teams – your understanding in this situation is appreciated).

This is House-league basketball and we expect only positive encouragement towards all participants (players, referees, coaches, etc.) at all times.

The referees for the House-league Program are also CYO players from older divisions. They are giving back their time and knowledge to the younger divisions. Please show your support as they perform their job to enhance their skills as referees.

Please ensure that the participants arrive in a timely manner as there is only one hour allotted to each Division.

There will be Rep teams from each of the Novice Divisions comprised of House-league players that tryout and are then selected to the team by the coaches. The Novice Division Rep players do not participate in the Saturday House-league. Additional information will be available on the Rep team section of the website.
