The goal of the Ascension Youth Basketball Program is to develop a child's basketball skills in a positive environment which promotes Christian values.
All boys and girls, Grades Kindergarten - 8th, are eligible for participation in the CYC Basketball Program if they meet one of the following: (unless your parish does not have a program).
Training League (Kindergarten) $80 per player
Includes training, basketball and reversible jersey (basketball and jersey are yours to keep)
Training League (1st - 2nd Grade) $100 per player
* A late registration fee of $40 applies from the Registration End Date until the program can no longer accept players for that gender and age level.
A $25 Sibling Discount will be given on all registrations after the first family member. Please note this discount will only apply to your cart when all children are registered at the same time.
Teams will typically include a minimum of seven players, and a maxium of twelve players. We will make every effort to ensure that each child is assigned to a team, if registered by the deadline.
Physical CYC cards are being replaced with an electronic membership. Players registering for the CYC Leauge will be charged a $5 annual membership fee and required to upload a photo to appear on rosters. Coaches will also be required to upload a photo, but will not be charged the $5 membership fee. Training League participants will not need to upload a photo.
It is important to register on time to ensure your child will be placed on a team, and when possible, we use the comments section of the registration form to place kids on teams in which they might have a friend they want to play with. Participants that register after the deadline, will be placed on a waiting list. We cannot guarantee placement on a team for late registrants.
CYC League (Grades 3-8) $145 per player
* A late registration Fee of $40 applies from the Registration End Date, until the program can no longer accept players for that gender and age level
NOTE: There are many reasons why "the program can no longer accept players for that gender and age level", for example:
The Ascension Basketball Program will provide team uniforms for all players in the CYC League (Grades 3-8).
All jerseys and shorts must be picked by a parent prior to the season and returned to one of the uniform collections at the end of the season. Please follow the appropriate care procedure and remember that these jerseys will be used by others in future years. Only wear the jerseys for games and not as play clothes. Also, please change before eating or drinking as stains are very difficult to remove. A fee will be assessed and your account suspended for failure to return the full uniform or for returning a damaged uniform.
All parents are encouraged to volunteer in a Sports Program as a Head Coach, Assistant Coach, Team Manager or practice/game helper. If your team already has a Head Coach, please ask him/her what you can do to help the team, or contact the appropriate Coordinator for details on how to help. Parent Participation allows us to continue to provide sports programs!
Each volunteer must fulfill their Archdiocese obligation by being compliant with the guidelines listed below. Non-compliance means we cannot accept volunteers that we greatly appreciate and need to make our Ascension programs successful.
