Boys and Girls Tiny Knights & Mini Knights Programs

2020 Winter/Spring HOUSE LEAGUE REGISTRATION NOW OPEN

2021-2022 Fall/Winter HOUSE LEAGUE PRE-REGISTRATION NOW OPEN

Hello Parents,

The Silver Knights Basketball Club is planning to operate all of its normal Tiny Knight, Min-Knight and House League programs.  Online Pre-Registration for all of these programs opened on Friday August 20, 2021.  Payment will not be required at the time of pre-registration.  Sequential lists based on a first-come-first-serve basis will be generated for each program using this pre-registration process.

We have recently been informed by both York Region School Boards (YCDSB and YRDSB) that they will be delaying the issuing of their gym permits for at least 4-5 weeks  What this means is that instead of issuing permits for the middle of September, they will now not be issued until the end of October (at the earliest and assuming the pandemic situation does not worsen-resulting in further delay).  What this delay means for the house league programs, is that our start date will be pushed back until at least early November.  

Once details such as start date, safety protocols, prices, and the number of participants allowed are confirmed, the club will contact those pre-registered players ONLY, in order to confirm final registration.

For example, we may have a house league program that normally has a player limit of 60 players.  A few weeks after pre-registration, you are told that you are #35 on the sequential list. Under normal circumstances, this would ensure a spot in the program.  However, safety protocols may only allow for 25 individuals in the gym at any one time.  This would significantly lower the player limit per program.  In this case being #35 on the list may not ensure a spot in the program.  We are using this pre-registration process in order to quickly confirm participants as soon as we know how many people can be allowed in a program.  Ultimately, if a parent wishes to improve the chances that their child will have a spot in our programs, they should pre-register as soon as possible.

If you have any questions or concerns, please don’t hesitate to contact me.

This developmental grassroots instructional program is intended to bring the “joy of basketball” to our youngest boy and girl basketeers from junior kindergarten to grade 2. OBA certified coaches direct our school in order that fundamentals are taught in a sequential progression to each individual child while maintaining a fun and exciting atmosphere.

A high instructor to participant ratio is present in order to maintain excellence.

Tiny & Mini Knights Basketball School Objectives:

  • Introduce primary aged pupils to key basketball skills while having fun
  • Promote sense of accomplishment
  • Support motivated players to pursue higher levels of competition
  • Build a new organization from the true grass roots level

Each action packed positive learning session lasts one hour in length, and includes:

  • Warm-up
  • Direct instruction
  • Whole group and small group activities
  • Perhaps a short modified basketball game at the end

It is through such fun activities that introductory foundation skills are established and reinforced, and our children start to see the benefits of:

  • Exercise
  • Team work
  • Self-discipline
  • The happiness that comes from success
