Heads Up

Welcome to Heads Up, your one-stop source for news about your son’s upcoming activities and events.

Form 5: winter team sign up

images-1Boys in Form 5 will sign up for winter representative school team tryouts on Friday, Oct. 31. Here are opportunities for Form 5 boys in the winter term:
Representative school programs

• U11 basketball (12) – Mr. Yungblut

Form 5 hockey (17) – Mr. Hustler and Mr. Girard

Unknown-1U11 swimming (no limit) – Mr. Babits

Intramural activities

Ice hockey and basketball

The numbers in bold after the representative school teams are the approximate numbers for that team.

Please discuss these opportunities with your son to help him make an informed choice. Your son can only play on one representative school team, but has the opportunity to try out for any teams he wishes.

All other information will be available from your son’s coaches. You can expect a commitment letter to be posted early in the tryout process. It outlines the commitment necessary to be a team member and important information related to the season. Please see the UCC website’s team pages for full schedule information and commitment letters.

Tryouts for Form 5 boys will begin on Tuesday, Nov. 4. These tryouts will run during their games periods for approximately two weeks.

For boys trying out for a hockey team, full equipment is required and can be dropped off at the arena’s team dressing room first thing in the morning. This room will be locked after 8:45 a.m. and reopened when the boys go over to change.

Boys trying out for basketball will need their full physical education uniform, including a tracksuit and a pair of clean, indoor-only shoes with non-marking soles. Boys without clean shoes won’t be able to try out, as it makes the floor unsafe for others.

Boys trying out for the swim team will need a bathing suit and a towel. Goggles are highly recommended. Caps and team suits will be provided to boys on the team.

All boys in Form 4 will have the opportunity to try out for one of three basketball teams during their games periods in November. While we encourage all boys to try out for one of the three teams, it’s not compulsory.  It’s important to note that there are several Saturday commitments for these teams, TWO of which are compulsory all day events. More information about this program will come home in early November.
