FAQs - 2017-18

How long does the season last?
 
The intramural season will run from November to Feb/Mar. The tournament season will go  
longer dependent upon tournament play. Generally, we like to start when the football and soccer seasons 
end and we like to finish our season a little before the baseball, softball and lacrosse seasons begin.
 
Practices/games?
 
The intramural league has practices and games at the O’Donahue Fieldhouse (except K and 1st grade)
K - games on Fri or Sat, usually at CES
Grade 1: 1 practice during week (M-T-W-Th-F), 1 game Fri or Sat, usually at CES
Grades 2-6: 1 practice during week (M-T-W), 1 game on Sat
Grades 7-8: 1 practice on Th, 1 game on Sun
HS: games on Sun, limited practices
 
Do boys and girls play together?
No, there are separate leagues for boys and girls.
 
Are children placed based on their grade in school or their age?
Players for the intramural league are placed on teams based on their grade in school. Same for Tournament Teams.
 
Is the Tournament season longer?
Tournament season typically begins in Feb and concludes in late March or early April.
 
How much does it cost?
For the 2017-18 season, the base registration fee ranges from $75 to $100, depending on the age group and league related expenses. The travel teams are ‘pay to play’ and will be collected at the end of the season..
 
What equipment does my child need to play basketball?
 
The only required equipment for basketball is a good pair of sneakers with good ankle support. A jersey 
will be provided by BYC for all intramural players. 
 
One very important note: PLEASE, DO NOT BRING ANY BASKETBALLS TO THE PRACTICES OR 
THE GAMES. THE FACILITY HAS AN ADEQUATE NUMBER OF BASKETBALLS TO RUN A 
PRACTICE AS WELL AS THE GAMES. ANY OUTSIDE BASKETBALLS OR ANY OTHER PLAYING 
BALLS WILL BE CONFISCATED AND RETURNED AT THE END OF THE PRACTICE OR GAME.
 
What are the eligible ages?
All children in grade K through 12 are eligible to play basketball this season. Team eligibility for the 
intramural league will be determined by the child’s current grade level.
Our youngest players must turn 5 yrs old by Dec 31st of the year the season starts.
 
What if my child has never played before?
We would love to change that! We encourage first timers and most kids are fairly adaptable and catch on 
quickly.
 
What if I change my mind?
We will refund your registration fee.
 
How do I sign up to coach?
You may volunteer to coach when you register your players through 
our web site.
