NORTHCROSS INTERMEDIATE SCHOOL BASKETBALL 2019
Registrations are now open for those students wanting to play Basketball for Northcross this semester – Terms 1 & 2. Before your child commits to this sport there is some very important information you need to know.
Games and Venue
Games are played on Monday evenings at the North Shore Events Centre Glenfield, or at AUT Northcote. The semester starts with grading games commencing Monday 11 March and runs through to the end of Term 2.
The draw with game times will be posted on the NX Basketball Webpage (on the NX Website) as soon as notification has been given from North Harbour Basketball. Weekly draws can also be found on the following website www.harbourbasketball.co.nz .
Registration/Fees Girls and Boys $170 per player
To register your child for Basketball this year, you will need to go to the NX Online Shop (you can find the link on the Northcross Website). A $50 deposit will be required with registration. Once teams have been formed, the balance will be loaded to your child’s account and will be required to be paid (via the NX Online Shop) by the end of Week 1, Term 2. This deposit is non-refundable. Registrations close on Monday 4 February - 12pm.
All who register will be placed in a team. Trials will likely take place from Monday 4th February (this is still to be confirmed - all trial dates and times will be published on the Basketball page of the NX Website). All players will have a second trial and will be notified, by email, after their first trial when that will be on either the Thursday or Friday afternoon.
All trials will be held in the school gym. Students are to wear their PE gear and remember their drink bottle. Players will not be able to trial in bare feet. If your child is a beginner, they do not need to attend trials, they will be placed in a beginner team. However, if they wish to be considered for a higher team, they can attend the trial. Please check your email daily for notification of second trial time.
Trainings will be held on either a Tuesday, Wednesday or Thursday afternoon in the NX Gym - day and time will be dependent on which team your child is placed in. There will be a special training scheduled before the first game, for all beginners to go over the rules, etc.
If your child has never played Basketball before, or has limited experience playing Basketball, please state that your child is a beginner when registering.
Each team will need a coach and manager. If we cannot get enough coaches we will have to reduce the number of teams and unfortunately some children will miss out on playing. Each team will have a practice with a professional coach, so the team coaches’ main responsibility will to be in charge of the team and substitutions during the game. Manager’s duties include contacting the team, checking that all players are checked off on the iPad before the game and organising a parent to do score bench.
All Coaches and Managers are required to be police vetted by Northcross. If you are keen to take on one of these roles and have not yet been police vetted by our school, please email and we will send you through the relevant forms to fill out. Any help will be greatly appreciated.
Thank you for your support in Basketball. We look forward to another successful season for Northcross Intermediate School.
