All children of the parish, grades 3-8, who are interested in playing basketball may now register at www.cyojwa.org. The cost to register is $95 per player ($63 to CYO and $32 to Nativity) plus the one-time $40 annual registration fee. If your son or daughter has already registered with the Archdiocese for football, cross country or volleyball then this fee is not required again for basketball. Registration closes November 4. Evaluations begin November 7.

Evaluations will take place Monday–Friday, November 7-11. Girls 4th-8th grade will take place Monday and Wednesday and the boys 4th-8th grade will take place Tuesday and Thursday. Fourth grade will start each day at 4 p.m. followed by 5th – 8th, in order. Each session will be one hour. 3rd grade gym time will be on Friday, 11/11, girls from 4-5 p.m. and boys from 5–6 p.m. 5th-8th teams will be divided based on skill level as determined by our professional evaluator. 3rd-4th teams will be divided equally based on input from the coaches and directors.

We look forward to seeing everyone and having a great season!

Note: All CYO participants are required to have a physical prior to participating in any CYO sport. If your child has obtained a physical for a Fall 2016 sport, another physical is NOT required. Without a physical on file with CYO, your child will not be able to participate.

The cost to register is $95 per player ($63 to CYO and $32 to Nativity). All players need to register with the Archdiocese CYO office. If your son or daughter has already registered with the Archdiocese for football, cross country or volleyball and paid the one-time $40 annual registration fee, then this fee is not required again for basketball. Otherwise, if this is the first CYO sport your son or daughter is playing this year, you will need to register at www.cyojwa.org and pay the one-time $40 Archdiocese fee, bringing your total cost per player to $135.

 

Participation

Nativity basketball is just around the corner for children grades 3 through 8. Registration is open to all parish families, it is not necessary to attend Nativity Parish School to participate. All children of the parish are welcome.

Note regarding siblings in the same grade: It is not possible to honor requests to have siblings on the same team. However, they can be on the same team if:  1) it is objectively determined through the tryout process (based on skill), or 2) after teams are formed, the student on the higher-level team chooses to move down to his or her sibling’s lower-level team.


Required Uniforms and Equipment

Players will need to purchase the required CYO uniform. Instructions for purchase will be provided at the first practice. Players are encouraged to wear their uniforms to the evaluations. If they are new to the program, a jersey will be provided.
