The 2017/2018 House League (HL) season (Oct 2017 – Feb 2018) is now underway. The Girls HL program welcomes girls from ages 8 to 18. The goals of the program are to encourage skills development, teamwork, good sportsmanship and FUN. The philosophy of girls house league is equal playing time for all players.
Over 300 girls competed across four age groups in our prior season. The teams were ably coached by our volunteers, demonstrating good teamwork and competitive fun. We would like to thank all coaches, league convenors, and site convenors.

Stephen Eisen Award
In order to honour Stephen Eisen’s special contribution to girls’ basketball, a player from each girls’ division is awarded a plaque in his memory. Stephen – a parent and coach – passed away suddenly in November of 2000. In each division, coaches nominate girls who best exemplified the “inspirational” qualities of enthusiasm, team spirit and love of the game.
House League Refereeing Opportunities for 2017/2018 Season
In Oct 2017, a communication will be sent to older House League (HL) players regarding HL Refereeing.
Our Referee convenor will be in charge of selecting an evening in early/mid Oct 2017 when all interested players will have the opportunity to register and have a short training session.
This will apply for all players born in 2000, 2001, 2002 and 2003.
