This is the official website for the Church of the Resurrection (Ellicott City, MD) basketball teams.


“Sports, properly directed, develop character, make one courageous, a generous loser, and a gracious victor.  Sports refine the senses, give us intellectual penetration, steel the will to endurance…Sports, rightly understood, mean the development of the whole person…help one achieve that end to which all others must be subservient, the service and praise of the Creator…”   -   Pope Pius XII

Registration is Open for the 2014-2015 Basketball Season!

Resurrection Basketball

2014-2015 Season

Register Now!!!  Open to youth of the parish and school grades 3 - 8.  Do not register for the high school and second grade programs at this time (that registration will be later in the fall.)

 

Program overview:  We are continuing to partner with St. Louis, Trinity, St. Michael’s, and other local parish teams. Teams will be formed for boys and girls in each grade, 3 - 8.  Teams from all schools/parishes will be single grade as much as

possible.  We will have only CYO league teams for 8th grade managed by Resurrection Basketball.  Other CYO teams may be formed as desired but will be managed outside of Resurrection Basketball (i.e. a volunteer must come forward to organize the team(s)).  CYO games are played at various parishes.  High school students will play in the CYO high school league beginning in January.

 

All 3rd - 8th grade games will be played at Resurrection, St. Louis (new gym) or Trinity.

 

Registration fee: $125 until October5.  After October 5 the fee is $145 and registration is only on a space-available basis.  Fee includes uniforms.  Grades 5 - 8 uniforms are to be returned.  If you register after October 5 and do not get placed on a team, your money will be refunded less $15.

 

Evaluations: MAY be held in early October to assist the coordinators and coaches in forming evenly matched teams.  If the commissioners and coaches think it necessary due to an influx of new participants, all children registered by October 5 will be notified IF there will be evaluations and placed on a team as long as they attend an evaluation session.

 

Practices: will be held at Resurrection or area public school gyms Mondays – Saturdays in the fall, then Monday – Thursdays once the season begins.  You will hear about team assignments in mid-October. Practices will begin thereafter.

 

Games: Will begin on December 5. Game locations are tentatively set as Grades 3 - 4: Trinity; Grades 5 - 6: Resurrection; and Grades 7 - 8: St. Louis.  CYO games for the 8th Grade are determined by the league. At Resurrection grade 6 boys will play Fridays, grade 6 girls and grade 5 girls and boys will play on Saturdays. 

 

Coaches: are needed for all levels.  Please indicate your interest on your child’s registration form. You must be STAND certified to be a coach or assistant coach. Please make sure you provide the contact email for the person who will coach when filling out the registration form.  There will be a general coach meeting the week of October 6.

 

When you register online, please make sure that you print out the confirmation page and also receive a confirmation email. If you do not receive a confirmation, your registration may not have gone through!
