WELCOME TO THE 2017/18 BASKETBALL SEASON

IMPORTANT NOTICE RE: TEAM ROSTERS

During the first three weeks of the season teams were able to make fixes to their rosters at game time. Now that the alignment period has finished for U10, U12 and U14 coaches in these divisions are no longer permitted to add players at game time. All coaches should carefully review their rosters, if there are players missing contact your clubs immediately!

Footware Policy

I wanted to remind all groups of the HRSB Indoor Footwear Policy. This is especially important now that winter is here and the roads and sidewalks are often covered in salt and gravel.
