We normally train 3 times a week in addition to playing games and/or tournaments during the regular season. Here is our current practice and game schedule.
Fall Basketball Season
Fall basketball starts in September and continues into March. We normally register a U13 and a U12 team into the Basketball BC Metro League but this may vary year-to-year based on player composition. Cost for the fall season is dependent on Basketball BC’s fee structure.
Spring / Summer Basketball
Spring basketball normally runs from April to July for the U12 and U13 levels and we have many open gyms on Sunday evenings at Riverside Secondary School. The spring training program will have a heavy emphasis on individual skill development – ball control, dribbling, passing, shooting, as well as our broader mission to have fun and nurture a lifelong love for the game of basketball.
There may be appropriate spring/summer tournaments that our players can take part in. Coaches will let parents know when these are available.
The cost for participating in spring U13 or U12 training is roughly $150 – $200. That cost includes the three weekly training sessions (Sun open gym + 2 practices a week).
Players who do not have Jabog jerseys may purchase those for $20 each (jersey + shorts = $40) from Paul Langford.
Players interested in competing in tournaments will pay $40 – $55 extra per tournament to cover the tourney entry fee (generally $350-$550 per team for Spring / Summer club tournaments, including 3-4 games over 2-3 days). We will only have a maximum of 10 players for our tournament entries to ensure adequate playing time for all participants. If there is sufficient interest, we will be happy to enter more than one team.
