Heads Up

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

Winter Term Athletic Team Sign Up and Tryouts

All boys in Year 4 will have had 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 is important to note that there are several Saturday commitments for these teams TWO of which are compulsory all day events. For more information about Form 4 athletics please click here.

U10 C Basketball (12-14) – Ms. Sarah Campbell
U10 B Basketball (12-14) – Ms. Reggie Reyes
U10 A Basketball (12-14) – Ms. Dianne Jojic

YEAR 5-7

All boys in Year 5 to 7 signed up for tryouts for on Friday, Nov. 2.  All options were presented to the boys during the day on Friday and they had an opportunity to meet briefly with the coach of the team.

Tryouts for all winter teams began on Monday, Nov. 5 and will be held during the boys’ games period for the next few weeks. (Even days for boys in Year 5, Days 2, 4, 5, 6 and 8 for Year 6 and Monday, Tuesday, Thursday and Friday for boys in Year 7)

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 by your son’s coaches. Commitment letters can be found at the bottom of this article. The commitment letter outlines the commitment necessary to be a team member and important information related to the season. They are also already posted on the team pages which are found on the opening athletic page of the UCC website.

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 on tryout days. 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 aren’t 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.

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