Participation in SJV Basketball is open to all Parish youth members who are registered in Christian Formation Programming or Parish school students in grades 5 - 8. All children are placed on a team. In 5th - 6th grades, teams are split equally among talent. In grades 7th - 8th, teams are split into A and B levels.
St. John Vianney Parish has decided to decline participation in any Archdiocese sponsored leagues this season. There are some hopes to have skills sessions or intramural strictly within the SJV community, but that is still being decided.
If you are interested in participating in any type of basketball skills, please use the regular season registration. At this time, no cost has been determined but it would be less than the season registration.
Team practices start the week after team splits. Coaches will contact their team with weekly practice days and times. Games start in December and finish at the end of February. Games are scheduled in Archdiocese area gyms on Saturdays as well as Sundays.
St. John Vianney Shamrocks participate in the Notre Dame Don Bosco League. Team schedules can be found on their web page.
Uniforms will be distributed during practices. Uniforms are to be returned by the athlete or parent during a uniform collection time. If the uniform is not returned, families will be charged a fee to cover the replacement of the uniform.
Families, excluding only the head coach of each team, are required to do concession duty a minimum of one time per child participating in the program during regular basketball season games. This may increase due to need. Families are also assigned to work concessions during their grade’s SJV tournament, regardless of whether or not their team is participating. Your help and cooperation is greatly appreciated. Please contact Kim Tallmadge for concession questions or scheduling.
The parent meeting will be held on ___________________________ at 6:00 pm in the Presentation Hall. Please plan on attending.
Splits will take place during the week of November 4th, please check back for specific dates and times.
Congratulations to our 8th grade girls 2018 Padre Serra Champions!!
