Kitchener Waterloo Girls Basketball is a not for profit organization founded in 2015 to offer basketball opportunities for girls in the Kitchener-Waterloo area.
KW Girls Basketball Association is currently in the process of planning for the 2020–2021 basketball season. Our current intentions are to run a winter Jr. NBA program for girls born between 2010 and 2015 and to begin the rep season (for girls born between 2002 and 2011) as soon as we are able to get practice gyms.
In light of the current Covid-19 situation, these programs may be delayed until the new year, or even longer. Any decisions regarding the start of the Jr. NBA or rep season will be made based on advice from local and provincial health authorities, Canada and Ontario Basketball and both local school boards. The safety of our players and their families will always be our primary objective.
That being said, in order to properly plan for the upcoming season and to allow us to stay in touch with the parents and players we would appreciate if everyone would take the time to complete our online registrations. There is no money required for any of our programs at this time.
Jr. NBA PROGRAM – COVID-19 UPDATE — Due to the lack of gym availability, we have made the decision to cancel the fall session of Jr. NBA. We are still planning to run the winter session from Tuesday, January 5th to Tuesday, March 30th. The location has not yet been confirmed, but we hope to continue to use Empire Public School and Centennial Public School similar to last year. In our Jr. NBA program unfortunately, the early session IS NOW FULL, 6:30pm to 7:25pm will be for girls born in 2013, 2014 and 2015 and 7:30pm to 8:25pm will be for girls born in 2010, 2011 and 2012. Now that the early session is full we will take younger girls (2013, 2014 & 2014) in the 7:30pm to 8:25pm session. More details are available on our Junior Programs page.
In order to plan accurately for these sessions, KWGBA asks that parents of any interested player to complete the following registration: Jr NBA Registration. Payment will not be required until Ontario Basketball and Waterloo Region give us the go ahead for all programs. We will notify you when this happens.
Although there is no real commitment when you complete this registration, we would ask that you let us know if your plans change. We expect the number of participants to be a closely monitored factor in all our programs this season and all seasons going forward.
ALL REP TEAMS – COVID-19 UPDATE — Due to the recent announcement by Ontario Basketball that OBL as well as all rep programs won’t be starting until at least January 2021 plus the current lack of gym availability, most of our teams have opted to not have fall tryouts. This is being decided on a team by team basis. In most cases our coaches will be contacting players from last years team plus anyone who registers here Rep Team Tryouts for 2020-2021 Season in order to put together a team for the 2021 season. Our coaches will each decide if they want and / or need a tryout in order to fill a roster. This tryout could be any time between now and January 2021. If you have questions about a particular team, please contact the coach directly. Coaches details can be found on our Rep Teams page.
Our U19 team (2002, 2003 and 2004) will be holding a tryout at RIM park on Saturday, September 19th. ALL girls who are interested in trying out MUST be registered online. Due to COVID-19 we are not going to be able to have players drop in to the tryout – they must be pre-registered and must have their parents sign the COVID waiver. There is no cost to register or to tryout. Further tryout details will be provided once you have registered at http://www.kwgba.ca/rep-team-tryouts-for-2020-2021-season/
