2018-19 Pictou County Lightning Registration

Hello Past, Present, Future Pictou County Lightning Members!

It is that time of year again to register for the upcoming fall skills and drills sessions.  Details below on what you need to know and how you register. 

Here are a few points of emphasis for this upcoming fall sessions and season;

-The one time $50 Registration fee is applicable to all members to join PC Lightning

-Once the 5 week Skills and Drills sessions conclude, there will be no team selection process for U16 or U18.  The team selection process for this age group will happen in February to prepare for Basketball Nova Scotia Provincials.  We will consider forming open gyms for this age group from the time of conclusion of the skills and drills to Team selections in February, this will be dependent on gym availability, player interest and coaches

New This Season

-For those who carry on after the Skills and Drills sessions and wish to be placed on teams.  We are eliminating the $50 Uniform deposit.  At the time of the jersey being handed out(first practice), parents will be required to sign a letter of agreement acknowledging and accepting responsibility of the Jersey.  In the event the jersey is damaged or lost, you will be required to pay a $50 replacement fee.  If that $50 replacement fee is not paid, then you will not be eligible to participate in future PCBA activities until paid in full

-For those who carry on after the Skills and Drills session and are placed on to teams. There is a $50 players fee, This fee will go directly to the team funds to cover expenses for competition.  This payment will be made at time of the teams first practice and paid directly to the teams Coach or Manager. 

So in short!  $50 registration fee due at time of first Skills/Drills session and another $50 players fee due at time of teams first practice(for those carrying to be placed on teams)

On behalf of the PCBA Board of Directors, We cannot wait to see you on the court! Here’s to a great 2018-19 Season,

Thank you,

Peter Douthwright

President of Pictou County Basketball Association
