Season begins/ Tournaments

   Welcome to the St.Peter Senior Varsity Basketball Team and our basketball family. We look forward to hard working with your son, and we expect another exciting season on the hardwood. Upon selection to the team we expect your son to demonstrate Commitment: to the team, Respect: for fellow players, coaches, and opposition, Integrity... there is no room for excuses ... Honesty.... speaks for itself.... Mental Toughness... the ability to endure, and a desire to pursue Excellence..... Effort plus Execution equals Excellence.

The 2007/2008 season is about to get under way and we are working hard at trying to instill a team approach with the boys. As coaches, we would like to thank you in advance for your continued support. We look forward to seeing as many parents as possible taking and active role in cheering on there fine young men. We are optimistic that the season will be a success and looking forward to returning to teh playoffs, and hopefully return to City Championship to its home.... here at “The Castle”. The league schedule has not been released yet. As the season unfolds, if you require any information about our league games, current standings, playoff schedules or last minute changes, please look on the premire host website serving high school sports in the Ottawa area: fatdog.ca we will also have our won website this season, it is currently under construction and will be up and running by next week Monday. The address for the site is http://eteamz.active.com/kinghtsboysbasketball/index.cfm?subsite=4490863. Please consult this site for all league games and upcoming tournament dates.

   St. Peter Senior Boys Basketball team is committed to being on top contending high school basketball program, and thus requires travel to tournaments with the highest calibre competition. We have committed to 7 tournaments this season. We will be attending 5 in town tournaments and 2 out of the Ottawa area.
Here is a list of our tournament dates:
(Schedules will be forwarded as they become available)
        
       Nov 15 – 17th Cullen Referees HS Tourney: Ottawa, ON
        Nov 29- Dec 1st Durham All Catholic HS Tourney: Whitby, ON
        Dec 7 - 8th Colonels By Cougar Classic: Ottawa, ON
        Dec 21- 22nd Algonquin College Thunder Tourney: Ottawa, ON
        Jan 10- 12th St. Joe’s Jaguar Classic: Ottawa, ON
        Feb 1-3rd Ridgemont Spartan Coca-Cola Classic: Ottawa ON

    The Tournament schedule is very busy and the school will be providing one way busing to local Ottawa based tournament events, for the Friday games only. All players will require a ride home from these events. Please arrange accordingly to have your son picked up or driven home promptly after the events finish. Parents are responsible for getting their son to all Saturday and Sunday events.

      Our out of town Tournaments venues will be in Whitby. Your son will need money to cover approximately 4-5 meals for these weekends, as well as money for gas and accommodations.

    Mr. Coventry will be coaching and chaperoning all tournament events, however I also need several parents to volunteer to drive our team to this tournament. Additional drivers help to minimize expenses, and make this trip a success for your son. If we are unable to secure parents drivers then we will have to opt for rental vehicles, which will create greater expenses. If you feel you can help out, please don’t hesitate to approach me at your earliest convenience, and share with me your intentions.

      Please submit a cheque for $225.00 in order to cover fees (transportation, Tournament fees, practise jerseys/warm up tops, teacher coverage) for these above tournaments. If you have a warm up, please submit a cheque for $200.00. The average cost of participating in a tournament is $300.00. The funds may not cover the whole season, but will be a beginning. We hope to engage in fundraising as a vehicle to cover the remainder.
Thanks very much for your consideration and support

Sincerely,
Ashley Coventry
Coach: Sr. Boys Basketball
