Registration Requirements

  • As previously noted, no travel players are permitted.
  • All parents of must attend 1 of 3 virtual Code of Conduct seminars.  Dates, times and dial in instructions will be provided to registrants once registration closes.

Practice Availability

Siblings in the same age group will be placed on the same team; however, we will not accept requests to be assigned with coaches or other players.  Players must make a commitment to attend practices which are 1 night per week. Please note the following when considering availability:

  • Each team will practice 1 night per week and always on the same weeknight at the same time.
  • We are typically only able to practice at Sandymount Elementary from 6:00 PM – 9:00 PM Monday through Friday. Each practice night is divided into three one-hour time slots.
  • Kindergarteners and 1st graders will practice one weeknight from 6:00 PM-7:00 PM.
  • 2nd-8th graders must select a minimum of 2 nights for practice availability and we try to schedule the age groups so that older players practice in the time slots later in the evening to greatest extent possible.
  • Please provide as much availability as possible to support competitive teams.
  • A parent or adult guardian of K-5th graders must remain at practice.
  • Siblings of players must remain with adult and are prohibited from playing on the school stage or hallways.

2021 Evaluations

We strive for as much competitive balance between teams in each league as possible.  To that end we require that all players participate in one evaluation session during which coaches will be able to observe each player executing fundamental skills and playing in brief scrimmages.  Players are then assigned to a team based upon coaches notes, practice availability and other factors.

Two evaluation nights will be planned for the weeks of 11/14 and 11/21.  More information will be provided once the school year begins and we are able to schedule gym time on the specific date & time for evaluations.

Additional Information

Coaches and other volunteers are needed! Please email Karen Sparks at ccrcbasketball@gmail.com if you have further questions.
