NORTHCROSS INTERMEDIATE SCHOOL BASKETBALL 2020
Registration will be open from Tuesday 17th December for those students wanting to play Basketball for Northcross in Semester One 2020. Before your child commits to this sport there is some very important information you need to know.
Games and Venues
Games are played on Monday evenings at either The North Shore Events Centre Glenfield, AUT Northcote or Massey University. The semester starts with grading games commencing Monday 24 February 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 .
All students who register, will be placed in a team, however in order to ensure your child has been placed in the team that is right for them, trials will take place. The trials will be held at Northcross during the school day, the players being released periodically from their classes when called. Although we appreciate the support from parents, due to the format of the trials it is advised that parents do not attend.
If your child is a beginner, please indicate this on the registration form, they are not required to attend a trial.
Trials will take place on Tuesday 11th and Wednesday 12th February from 9am – 3pm. You will be advised if a callback is required.
Coaches, Managers and Umpires
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. If you are interested in being a coach or manager for Basketball, please indicate this on registration.
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.
Registration/Fees Girls and Boys $175 per player / per semester
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 3rd February - 12pm.
Please note that while we will accept registrations from all players, Harbour Basketball may not be able to fit all teams into the competition so some players may miss out. If this is the case, then the registration deposit will be refunded.
Training's 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.
Thank you for your support in Basketball. We look forward to another successful season for Northcross Intermediate School.
