GIRLS BASKETBALL REGISTRATION
is now open for the FALL 2017 Season
The CYO basketball program at Christ the King will now operate all teams under the administration of CYO Nassau/Suffolk.
This program is open to ALL skill level players, ranging from 4th to 8th grades. The teams will compete against other parishes on Long Island.
Players are required to attend their allotted evaluation session (listed below), so they can be properly placed on a team. The evaluations will take place at Christ the King. The athlete is to attend the session for the grade they will be in September 2017.
4th grade: Tuesday March 28th @ 6:00 PM
5th grade: Tuesday March 28th @ 8:00 PM
6th grade: Wednesday March 29th @ 6:00 PM
7th grade: Wednesday March 29th @ 8:00 PM
8th grade: Thursday March 30th @ 6:00 PM
Our intent is to make as many teams as possible, based on: (1) the number of players signing up, and (2) the number of coaches volunteering.
CYO Nassau/Suffolk maintains strict rules of eligibility to play for a parish. An athlete must fit one of the following criteria in order to participate in Christ the King’s CYO:
- The athlete resides in Christ the King’s parish boundaries.
- The athlete is a registered parishioner of Christ the King.
- The athlete attends Children’s Faith Formation at Christ the King.
- The athlete attends Holy Family Regional School.
- The athlete lives in an adjoining parish, but AFTER trying out for their resident parish team gets cut, and so is now eligible to try out at Christ the King.
- The athlete lives in an adjoining parish, but their resident parish does not have a team for the athlete’s age group.
Eligibility is verified by CYO Nassau/Suffolk before an athlete is alllowed to be on an official roster.
