We have one gym to support the needs of basketball teams from PK-12. Our MS and
US teams typically practice right after school and their games are on weekdays. We will
do our best to provide reasonable practice times for the CYO teams. However, you
should be aware that your scheduled practice times may be at different days and times
from week to week. Generally, practices will be one to two times per week between
6:30 – 8:30 PM on weekdays depending on gym availability. We may use Saturdays for
additional practice times until the season starts in December. In addition, we may utilize
an NISD gym to supplement our practice times.

Forming Teams
Priority will be given to returning players to form teams. As spots open up, new players
will be placed on teams. We will consider forming additional teams at each level based
on player interest and gym availability. If you are not placed on a team, you will receive
a full refund. The registration deadline is October 10, 2011. We will accept applications
after October 10, but these registrations will automatically be placed on a waiting list
until a spot opens up, if any.

Our program relies on your support. We request that all parents volunteer their time in
the concession stand and admissions table. All parents may sign up through the
assigned team parent. We are also in need of gym coordinators to manage the gym as
we host games throughout the season. Most importantly, we need to coaches to lead
each respective team.

Drop Policy (pg16 CYO Coaches Handbook)
Player Participation – Players may be dropped for lack of attendance at practice
sessions and/or games due to injuries and ineligibility at any time.

During scoresheet checks for player participation, if the Zone or CYO Office discovers
that a player has more than three consecutive absences the Zone or CYO Office may;
   i) Question the parish and or parents regarding the situation
   ii) Have player officially dropped if warranted

If a player has missed 3 or more consecutive games, it is the responsibility of the Head
Coach to notify the Zone Registrar for review and approval to allow this player to stay
on the team.
a) Failure to do so will risk the team forfeiting every game after the three game
    absences have taken place.
