Basketball Player Registration

2019-20 Registration opens on August 1, 2019

On the Player Registration page, click the "Register" link on the right to register your player(s) for the 2019-20 Basketball Season.

 

When can I Register?

Registration opens each year on August 1st.  Elementary and Junior High teams are formed in the beginning of October. Senior High teams are formed the first week of December.  Registrations are on a first come/first served basis so the sooner you register the better to avoid being placed on a waiting list.  Players can only be placed on teams if there are enough coaches to coach the number of players registered.

Added Fees: Registrations may be accepted and will incur an additional $20.00 fee after 12:00 PM (noon) on October 15th for Elementary/Junior High.  Players can only be placed on teams if there are openings and will need to attend 2 practices prior to participating in games.


Do I Have Until October 15th to Register?

It depends.  October 15th is simply the day that we start charging an additional fee of $20 per registration for Elementary & Junior High teams.  It does not mean that if you register by October 15th that you are guaranteed a spot on a team.

Our league registrations stay open until we reach a max of 10 players per team and/or we run out of volunteers to coach teams in the league.  That means that a league could close much earlier than October 15th and you would be best served registering in August/September.

Registrations continue to be accepted with an additional fee after October 15th until our teams are filled and practices have started.


Can I Play with BPAA AND a Traveling Team at the Same Time?

NO.

Elementary – A player whose name appears on a traveling roster during the current BPAA season (start of November - end of January) is ineligible to participate in the BPAA Basketball program. If a player has participated in more than three traveling tournaments during the current BPAA season they are also ineligible.

Junior High – Players who have quit or have otherwise been removed from a traveling team, may join a house league team prior to December 31. The player addition must be approved by the BPAA Basketball Board. Only registered players may participate in practices, regular season games and tournaments.

Senior High - No players may be added after the first game, unless approved by the BPAA Basketball Board. Only players rostered to the team may participate in practices, regular season games and tournaments.


How do I Register my Player?

Registering your player(s) is completed here on the BPAA Basketball SportsEngine Website.  League Fees are accepted online by credit/debit card or checking account only.  You will fill out your registration information, sign waivers, code of conduct policies and pay your league fee all here on this site.

IN-PERSON/ASSISTED REGISTRATION

If you can only pay by cash or money order, you must attend one of the two dates for in-person registration both held at the Brooklyn Park Community & Activity Center where we will have volunteers available to assist you with the online registration form and league fee payment process.  These are also the preferred dates to attend if you wish to apply for Financial Assistance.

To help speed up your assisted registration, please remember your SportsEngine account (typically your email) and password.  If you need to create a SportsEngine account, please do so prior to the in-person dates. Click here to create a SportsEngine account.

Can I get Financial Assistance?

FINANCIAL ASSISTANCE IS CLOSED FOR THE 2018/19 Season.  We are proud to say we were able to help supplement registration dollars for 70 players this year!

BPAA does offer a limited amount of financial assistance to families residing in Brooklyn Park or Brooklyn Center and can demonstrate the need. To apply, you must provide a picture ID and most recent 1040 tax form to the Brooklyn Park Community & Activity Center (CAC) Rec & Park Office, 5600 85th Ave N, Brooklyn Park.

Once the scholarship is approved, the Rec & Park Office will notify us and you will receive an email from BPAA Basketball that includes a discount code to use to complete your registration online.  Please allow up to 72 hours to receive your discount code via email.

DO NOT REGISTER ONLINE WITHOUT YOUR CODE OR YOU WILL NOT RECEIVE THE DISCOUNTED RATE AND IT WILL NOT BE CREDITED AFTER THE FACT.


Is There a Payment Plan Option?

Due to the overwhelming number of failed payments by families selecting to pay using a payment plan in the past, there is not a payment plan option for registration. 


Can my Child "Play up"?

No.  Playing up is NOT allowed in the BPAA basketball program.  All players must register for the grade in which they are currently enrolled in school.  Violations of this policy are not tolerated and will be sanctioned appropriately by the committee including removal from the program with no refund.


Do I have to Submit a Uniform or Volunteer Deposit Check?

No, we have phased out the need for both the uniform and volunteer deposit checks.

Volunteers are still needed and your team will be credited with completion of an assigned volunteer shift.


What if My Child Damages or Loses their Uniform?

Uniform shirts used by Grades 1-4 are yours to keep.  If you lose/damage your uniform during the season and need a replacement you will be charged a $10 replacement fee for a shirt similar in color and size.

Uniforms used by Grades 5-12 will be put on a refresh cycle paid from your league fee.  However, if your child loses, does not return their uniform at the end of the season, or returns the uniform in poor shape, you will be invoiced between $50-$100 for replacement/repair and not allowed to register with any other BPAA sports program until your account is paid.


If I have to Cancel, can I get a Refund?

Refunds will only be issued if your cancellation request is received prior to the start of your league's games.  Send requests to bpaabasketball@gmail.com.

A $20.00 processing fee will be deducted from the original fee amount for each player removed from the program.  No refunds can be processed until issued uniforms are returned and their condition assessed.

Refunds will be processed within 14 days of the request and credited back to the account used to pay the fee initially.
