COMMUNITY UPDATE – February 10, 2022

Dear East York basketball community,

We have been informed that we will gain access to our Saturday school gym facilities one week earlier that originally scheduled, allowing us to push up the restart of our Fall/Winter House League Program.

Subject to the availability of permitted TDSB gym facilities, as well as any changes in Provincial Regulations and/or local public health restrictions, EYBC’s House League program is now scheduled to resume effective Saturday, February 19th.

EYBC will be extending the current house league season an additional six weeks past the original March 5th, 2022 end date, to make up for the sessions that were cancelled due to public health restrictions and school board permit delays. The revised end date for the current House League season will therefore be April 16th, 2022.

We look forward to getting back on the court shortly.

The East York Basketball Club

HOUSE LEAGUE UPDATE

Our 16th annual Fall/Winter House League season is in full swing. Registration is now closed for the season.

Fall/Winter House League Program

 

The Fall/Winter House League program is available for boys and girls, ages six and up.

The program focuses on skills development, participation and fun. The first part of each session is devoted to teaching the fundamentals of the game with instruction and drills. During the second part of each session, participants are able to apply what they have learned during a series of basketball scrimmages. Provincial/Local health and safety protocols in place during the season, will determine the overall structure of the program we are able to offer. 

All house league sessions are held on Saturdays from mid-September through early-March at Cosburn Middle School. As we look to expand the program, we will be adding gym facilities in our surrounding community.

The schedule for both the Boys and Girls sessions is as follows:

All participants are provided a reversible jersey, shorts and a basketball at the first session of the season. Participants are expected to bring their jersey and basketball to each session so that they can fully participate in the drills. Please make sure the participant’s name is clearly marked on their basketball. If the ball is lost, a new one can be purchased at the front desk each Saturday.
