2023-2024 Brantford Hawks House League   

Novice 8 / U9 Division (born 2015)

 

Welcome to the 66th season of Brantford CYO Hawks Basketball.  Brantford CYO Hawks is a completely volunteer organization dedicated to improving the basketball and social skills of all participants. Your support is greatly appreciated.

SKILLS DEVELOPMENT

During the first weeks of October the players will participate in skills development sessions that are fundamental to the game of basketball.  Dates, times and locations to be confirmed.

REGULAR SEASON

Regular season games will be played from October to February – with dates, times and locations to be confirmed.  (last year, this division played Saturdays at 10:00am at St. John’s College)

PLAYOFFS

Playoff games will be played in February/March with dates, times and locations to be confirmed.  (last year, this division played Saturdays at 10:00am at St. John’s College)

OVERVIEW

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).

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.
