Parkland Community Basketball League: Welcome

Monday, August 18
Gearing up for the 2014/2015 Season

Welcome to the Parkland Community Basketball website for basketball in the Parkland County, Spruce Grove, and Stony Plain area of Alberta, Canada. This year we celebrate our 23nd year as a community basketball program and we are looking forward to another great season this year!

If you aren't familiar with our league, it is a recreational, co-ed league for kids grade 2 through grade 12 (born 1997-2007). Each team has a weekly practice during the week and a refereed league game on Saturday. All registered players are placed on a team and all receive equal playing time. All divisions run from September until end of February, except the Juvenile (grade 10-12) division that only runs until end of November.

We do not do any fund-raising although we are looking for volunteers in a variety of positions including coaches, assistant coaches, division coordinators, team managers.

Registration fees are $175 per player or $350 per family. As the juvenile division runs a short season, fees for this division are $90 per player. There will be a $25 per player late registration fee for all who register after September 11. 

Our registration nights are Thursday,August 21, Monday September 8 and Thursday September 11. Each will be at the Tri Leasure Center from 6-9 pm.

Also note that there is subsidies available for financially challenged families through KidSport Parkland. The form is available on the KidSport Alberta website: www.kidsport.ab.ca under the local chapter named Parkland. Or contact them at 780-963-8591 for more information on this.

We are also looking for more people interested in making some extra money while getting some excercise by refereeing our games on Saturday. We offer referee training. If you are interested in this, please contact our referee coordinator Alison Normand at anormand@clearwave.com to register and for more details.
