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.

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.
