CAMMERAYGAL P&C Sports sub-committee invites students to play basketball in the Northern Suburbs Basketball Competition (NSBA)
For U14 – U18 teams there are two competitions a year, no games are played during school holidays:
February till June
July to late November
U13 teams play 3 short competitions per year during term times.
Games will be played at either:
North Sydney Indoor Sports Centre (Hume St, Crows Nest)
Willoughby Leisure Centre (Small St, Willoughby) or
SCEGGS Redlands (either the senior or junior school)
The venue used will be the same for the entire season.
NOTE: For the U14s there have in the past been occasional games at the Marie Bashir centre in Mosman on a late Saturday afternoon.
Basketball is done in the following age groups e.g. u13, u14, u16 and u18.
U18s – Anyone turning 16 or 17 in 2018 can play in the U18s.
U16s – Anyone turning 14 or 15 in 2018 can play in the U16’s
U14s – Anyone turning 13 in 2018 can play in the U14’s.
U13s – Anyone turning 12 in 2018 can play in the U13s.
Boys and girls teams are separate – there are no mixed teams.
Games are played on Friday evenings for most teams, though the U13 teams play on a late Saturday afternoon:
U14s usually play between 4 –7pm
U16s usually play between 5-10pm
Specific times will be allocated by NSBA and the draw for the season is released a week prior to the competition starting.
Training: Training is still to be finalised based on the availability of the players and coaches but it is expected that it will be run on the school outdoor court either before or after school one day a week or possibly on a Saturday.
Coaches will either be a private coach, a volunteer parent or an older student under the supervision of a parent volunteer.
It is a school requirement that all coaching sessions have a parent supervising. All parents may be required to take a turn at supervision.
Uniform: These will be supplied at a cost of approximately $50 per player.
Website: The Northern Suburbs Basketball Association (NSBA) maintains a website with fixtures, results and competition ladders at www.NSBA.com.au.
Duty: At various times during the season two players from the team will be required to do duty, for either the game before or the one after the timeslot they are playing at. Duty involves scoring for the game, not refereeing and will be shared evenly amongst the team members.
Team manager: A volunteer parent will be needed from each team to act as manager. This role involves emailing the team with game times and duty and liaising with the CHS P&C Sports Basketball convenor on any issues that may arise.
In registering to play basketball, all players are making a commitment. You are committing to attend all training sessions and games unless you are sick or injured. You are also committing to learn the rules and being a team player. You may not pull out of your team unless you are sick or injured. If this is the case, you must notify the manager or coach as soon as you realise you cannot play.
FEES (Please note all fees are approximate at this stage)
NSBA Competition fee: $200 (covers 18 matches plus finals)
NSBA Annual registration fee: $90
Coaching fee: TBA (will depend on whether a paid coach or parent volunteer) – with an experienced coach it will be around $215 per player.
Note: these figures are based on a team of 8 players and may be reduced with more players in the team.
If you are interested in playing please complete a registration form on the CHS website which can be accessed by clicking here. This needs to be done by 10 December if you wish to play in the first competition for 2018.
Please note a $50 deposit is required to secure a place on the team. This amount is non-refundable unless we are unable to place a student on a team. It will be deducted from the overall fees.
You will be contacted by the P&C sports sub-committee basketball convenor who will confirm if you have a place on the team and who will provide you with further details including details of payment. Please note you will not be able to play until full payment has been received.
Every year we are unable to place some students on a team as we are limited in how many teams we can enter into the NSBA competition. We will endeavour to place as many students as possible.
