Registration 2021/2022

Update, October 17, 2021
EOBA Executive announce league plans for 2021-2022…
EOBA Executive:
Due to the limited availability of facilities the EOBL, WEBL and COBL will not start until January 1st, 2022. Over the next few months, we will continue to work with the Eastern Ontario School Boards to see if they will release gymnasium time for community use. Once we have clarity on the situation the EOBA executive will develop a plan for league and tournament play for the 2021-2022 season.

Welcome to Warriors Basketball!

It is important to read and understand all the documentation associated with this year’s registration process. After reading this page and the Terms of Membership (link here) , if you have any questions, please send them to info@kemptvillewarriors.ca. If you are having difficulty with any of the links, forms, or do not get an email confirmation 10 to 15 minutes after submitting your form, please send an email to registrar@kemptvillewarriors.ca.

Although several uncertainties still influence this season’s start, Player Registration at this time will allow us to plan for when gyms ultimately open for Community Use of Schools (CUS).

We are not charging fees until the details of programming are determined.

Estimated team fees for the 2021/2022:

U10, $170**

U11 & U12, $275**

U13 & U14, $330**

U15 & U16 $430**

Boys U19 $460**

Team schedules will be determined when gym bookings are finalized. Thank you for your patience as we endeavour to return to play.

We don’t know what numbers will be allowed until Public Health protocols are finalized, so we will register players by their gender and birth years and adjust team groups according to protocols when we receive them.

The Eastern Ontario Basketball Association (EOBA) have issued notification that Vaccines will be required for all participants who are eligible (players, coaches and volunteers will require two shots and 14 days before participating). When children under 12 are eligible, they must be vaccinated ASAP.  Click here for full details of the EOBA, COVID-19 and Return to Play Policy   Click here for information on the Ontario Government’s Enhanced COVID-19 Vaccine Certificate with QR  Code.

When filling out a player registration form you will be required to attest that your child is or will be fully vaccinated when they become vaccine eligible. When children under 12 are able to be vaccinated, reasonable timelines for full vaccinations will be implemented.

Individuals attending Warriors events who cannot provide proof of vaccination or will not be permitted in school facilities while Warriors has access via a CUS permit.

Initially spectators will not be permitted in facilities. This is will allow us to maximize the number of players permitted in facilities at one time.

Warriors will be responsible for heath protocols as detailed in the OBA’s Return to Play Step 3 (link to guidelines): It is possible that our Health Unit may add to these protocols.

To ensure the heath protocols are stringently followed we will have two parent volunteers in the facilities at all times. These volunteers will be part of a “Health Crew”. Heath Crews will be made up of parents from each individual player group, and will be responsible to oversee the use of PPE, monitor behaviour and cleaning protocols, and oversee access to the facility. I anticipate each player group/team will need a minimum of five parent volunteers (not part of the coaching staff) for Health Crews to cover all events and share the duties. One of those volunteers will also need to be part of the Warriors Lead Health Crew that will organize, schedule, and ensure all protocols are followed. You will be asked to volunteer for your child’s team Health Crew when submitting your registration form. If a team does not have enough volunteers for a proper Health Crew, that team will have limited access to facilities.

Registration and Programming Information 2021/2022

Update Sept. 12,

As with most things COVID-related, things are constantly changing. Having communicated with the UCDSB & CDSBEO regarding Community Use of School (CUS), our Health Unit, the EOBA and OBA, here’s what I know as of today…

No Clubs in the EOBA have access to school gyms for the foreseeable future. There are a couple of private school gyms being used by one or two clubs. Health units have put CUS on hold until a review in mid October. I don’t expect any clubs to be in their regular school gyms until November at the earliest. When play resumes there’s a possibility it may be limited to practices and in-club scrimmages only. This will be regulated at the discretion of local Health Units.

The OBA and EOBA have issued notification that Vaccines will be required for all participants who are eligible (players, coaches and volunteers will require two shots and 14 days before participating). When children under 12 are eligible they must be vaccinated ASAP.  My understanding with regard to mandatory vaccines is: the only exemptions will be those who are likely to or have had an anaphylactic response or after their first shot they had an issue with blood clotting. How the Vaccine Certificates will be enforced is still to be determined. Initially, I think it will be best for Warriors to not allow spectators in the schools until things are up and running smoothly.

Warriors will be responsible for heath protocols as detailed in the OBA’s Return to Play Step 3 guidelines: https://basketball.on.ca/return-play-step-three-effective-friday-july-16th-2021/. I expect the Health Unit may be adding to these protocols.

Warriors will have “Health Crews” for each team to oversee the use of PPE, monitor behaviour and cleaning protocols, and oversee access to the gyms. I anticipate each team will need a minimum of five parent volunteers (not part of the coaching staff) for Health Crews to cover all events and share the duties. One of those volunteers will also need to be part of the Warriors Lead Health Crew that will organize, schedule, and ensure all protocols are followed. If a team does not have enough volunteers for a proper Health Crew, that team will have limited access to facilities.

Warriors will begin online registration Saturday, Sept. 18. Considering that programs may have to be altered to comply with evolving health restrictions or limited due to the allocation of gym time, we will not require registration fees until we are certain how programming will roll out. Practice schedules will not be finalized until we have received conformation of all gym bookings.

Thanks for your patience as we move forward with the 2021/2022 season.
