FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS (FAQ)
Q: What grade level do I register my child for? (League question)?
A: Registration is based off of the grade the player is heading into for the upcoming school year (2017-18). IE: if 'Taylor' just completed Grade 5 at Manoah Steves Elementary, he/she should be registered for the Gr. 6/7 league.
Q: Will my child be playing basketball for four hours at-a-time (League question)?
A: No, participants will be divided into balanced teams one week prior to the beginning of the season. From there, players will be assigned a one-hour slot between the hours of 4:15 and 8:15 p.m. on Monday and Wednesday (Grades 4-7) / Tuesday and Thursday (Grades 8-12).
Q: Can my child be placed on the same team as his/her friend (League question)?
A: Yes, all players will be allotted one friend request on Team Forming night, but they are not guaranteed to play on the same team as their friends, as family and car-pooling requests are prioritized. Summer Slam staff reserve the right to balance teams to maintain the competitive balance of the league.
