LEGENDS HOUSE LEAGUE this is our regular Spring League that we have run for many years. This year we are including Grade 1 - 9, both girls and boys divisions. These grade divisions will be run like our Fall House League (Grades 1 & 2 are group clinics once per week on Friday nights. Grades 3 - 4 teams are selected based on where players live and the schools they attend. Grades 5 - 9 players are asked to attend an Evaluation Night and will be placed on a team based on skill level. Team parity is the main goal with the grade 5 - 9 age groups and as such player/parent requests to play on specific teams, to play in certain areas of town and/or to play with specific players cannot be accommodated). Players in Grades 10 - 12 MUST form teams, find a Head Coach and register /play in the Club League, (If you are in grade 10, 11 or 12 Boys and Girls, and want to play but cannot find a team, please text Matt at 778 - 363 - 1909.)
There will be one, one hour practice and one game per week. Game nights [ subject to gym availability ] are set in advance but practice nights are not confirmed until players are placed on their teams. All games and practices will be scheduled at gyms ( See List under Legends Link, Click on the "Legends Link" at the top of this page then Click on "Gym Locations" ) within Kelowna\West Kelowna boundaries and will be on week nights only. Players from anywhere within the Okanagan Valley are welcome to register and play. Friday, April 5th will be the registration cutoff date.
THE COST FOR THIS PROGRAM IS FOR: GRADES 1 & 2 - $175
GRADES 3 - 9 -$275
For Grades 1 - 5, if you did not play in the Fall 2018 Nash Program, your Spring Legends Registration Fee will include a uniform top, black shorts and ball.

For Grade 1 to 4 Divisions Boys and Girls, the Spring Legends Season will be starting the week of April 15th and a Coach will contact the parents to confirm the schedule.
We try our best to not ask parents to travel long distances to practice locations each week. We make allowances for extreme travel distance. We do however utilize West Side Gyms and do not consider traveling across the bridge from Kelowna as extreme travel.

4. Players are expected to be at practice in order for their team to improve. Unwarranted absences from practice may be subject to a reduction in play time. Coaches expect prior notification of missed practices.
5. All players must conform to expected guidelines concerning behavior as outlined on the Conduct / Policy Link at the top of of this homepage. (Players Code of Conduct÷) www.kelownamba.com
6. PLAY-UPS CRITERIA
1. Our first criteria for allowing play ups is there must be room in the higher division.
2. Alternately, if a higher division team is not full, remaining play-ups won't be used to fill the spots unless they are capable. This decision is made by the majority of coaches present on each evaluation night. We have asked the coaches to be selective when evaluating possible play-up players.
3. Coaches with their own kids in a play-up situation can create difficulty for conveners to confirm their coaching list. The coach should communicate this with the convener of both divisions before evaluations.
4. All players requesting to be considered to play-up (1 division only is allowed), MUST show up at the evaluation of the higher division, or they will not be approved to play up.
7. Parents are requested to help when needed including: timing, scoring and gym management.
8. Players and parents cannot request special placement (being with friends, being with a special coach, car pooling, etc.)
Our first priority is to create balanced teams. If we allow special placement requests then we cannot achieve this goal.
9. Parents will abide by the KMBA (Parent Code of Conduct÷ and Zero Tolerance Policy÷), outlined on the Conduct / Policy Link at the top of of this homepage.
10. The KMBA reserves the right to release any player or coach from the KMBA.
11. KMBA has a ZERO TOLERANCE POLICY ( a copy is posted at the top of the KMBA Homepage, click on the title Conduct/Policy, then click on the link Zero Tolerance Policy). We expect players, coaches, and parents to refrain from any form of criticism directed toward officials, coaches or other players. A positive approach to all circumstances is the example we want to set in our league.
12. Each player is expected to provide their own basketball, gym strip and indoor running shoes for evaluations.
