GRADES 3 THRU 8 – BASKETBALL REGISTRATION
HOLY INFANT Basketball registration begins in August and is open to any individual that meets at least one of the following criteria:
- You reside within the Holy Infant Parish boundary
- You do NOT reside within the boundary, but one of the following applies:
- You are a registered Holy Infant parishioner
- Your player presently attends Holy Infant Full-Time School
If NONE of the above eligibility conditions apply, click HERE and enter your address to determine the Parish in which you reside and then register your player with that Parish.
Details regarding individual parish boundaries are available at the following links:
- Holy Infant Parish Boundaries
- St. Alban Roe Parish Boundaries
- St. Clare Parish Boundaries
- Ascension Parish Boundaries
- Most Sacred Heart Parish Boundaries
Completing the registration process DOES NOT guarantee a player will be assigned to a team. The League will do its best to inform registrants ASAP if there are problems regarding team placement.
Team Formation: Holy Infant Basketball is a faith-based, recreational league and not a “Select” program. Team formation is the responsibility of the Holy Infant Basketball program. No team will be allowed to enter/remain in West County CYC if it is discovered that the team was formed based on skill level tryouts.
HIGH SCHOOL CYC BASKETBALL REGISTRATION
Students in grades 9th to 12th can register a team to play CYC Basketball. To register a team to play, you need to go to the CYC St. Louis web site (http://www.cycstl.net/) and around end of October or so each year, there will be a link along the left hand column to register for High School Basketball.
New starting in 2017: High School players DO NOT register thru the holy infant web site.
Holy Infant can provide gym space for the team’s home games. However, due to not having JFK for grade school home games, we must have some games on Friday nights. That limits the available gym space during the week for practices. With that, we do not have available gym space for any High School teams to practice.
