The Spring Legends Season starts the week of April 3 (Grades 6 - 9 - Evaluation Week will run - Apr 3rd - 6th) to Mid June.
Players in Grades 10 - 12 are encouraged to form teams, find a coach and register /play in the Club League.
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.
1. Play-ups apply to players in Grades 5 and higher.
2. All Players from Grades 6 - 9 MUST Be At Evaluations!! LEGENDS EVALUATIONS WEEK RUNS FROM APRIL 3RD TO APRIL 6TH. Players who do not show will be replaced by late / wait-listed registrants who are present. Parents of sick registrants must attend the Evaluation Week and provide oral information on their child to the selection panel.
3. Full refunds will be offered in each division if the registrar has been notified up to the day before each scheduled evaluation night. Players may withdraw on evaluation night and a full refund will be issued so long as the player or parent/guardian is present at the applicable gym to let the convener know in person. Should a player withdraw from Legends after the evaluation nights, the total cost will be $60. After two games the cost is 50% of the total fees paid. No refund after three games. There will also be a $25 late registration fee for any player who registers after the evaluation nights. Due to the RAMP registration costs a $10.00 fee will not be refunded.
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. The coaches and conveners must be more selective at evaluations.
2. Our first criteria for allowing play ups is there must be room in the higher division.
3. Alternately, if a higher division team is not full, remaining playups won't be used to fill the spots unless they are truly capable. This decision is made by the majority of coaches present on each evaluation night.
4. Coaches with their own kids in a playup situation can create difficulty for conveners to confirm their coaching list. The coach should communicate this with the convener of both divisions before evaluations.
5. 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.
