Basketball update

I hope everyone had a great summer! It is time again to get ready for the Fall / Winter basketball season.
The online registration starts on early September and runs from August 23 until September 24.  (details at www.wmba.ca ).  Fees are $240 per player.
Please consider volunteering to coach or help out as a team manager as there is always a need and we cannot make teams without coaches and other volunteers. If you would like to volunteer as a coach, please contact basketball@whyteridge.ca ASAP, so we can get practice schedules arranged prior to registration. There are 16 games during the year played on Saturday or Sunday depending on the age group.  Age groups 8-12 play on Saturdays, 13-18 play on Sundays.  In addition to the 16 games, one practice is held during the week.  Games are played all over the city while practices are held in Whyte Ridge or the surrounding areas.
For children aged 5-7, the Winnipeg Minor Basketball Association is running the Jr. NBA program.
Registration for that program is done directly through the WMBA at http://wmba.leaguetoolbox.com/site
Here’s looking forward to another great season!
