Registration FAQ's

League Registration — Frequently Asked Questions for Fall/Winter and Spring League Registration

Please contact our league registrar if you have any questions that are not answered on this page - registrar/at/ The following are some answers to frequently asked questions that may assist you and make the registration a smooth process:

$30 Non-Refundable Deposit

We will be changing how we collect registration fees this year. We understand not everyone may be in a financial position to make basketball costs a priority so we will only be collecting a $30 non-refundable deposit with your registration, which will secure your child’s place on the team.

Upon confirmation of a start date, TCYBA will notify all registrants and the balance of the registration fee must be paid within a week of that notification. This will give families an opportunity to hold a registration spot for  the Fall / Winter season without having to commit funds to pay a full registration fee now. Should your family choose not to participate in the season, you would only be forfeiting your deposit, which covers administrative costs.

Currently, the registration fees posted on our website will reflect the cost of the full season beginning September 21, 2020. If the start date is postponed, the fees will be adjusted relative to the season’s overall duration.

Please note that the $30 non-refundable deposit is only valid for the Fall / Winter 2020-21 season or, if a deferred start date is required, a Winter 2021 season. 

This deposit will be applied directly toward the overall participation fees when you complete your registration.

For most grades there are two lev­els – What level do I sign my child up for?

New players to the TCYBA must register in the division in which their current grade, will be the highest grade listed– for example a new Grade 5 player to the TCYBA must register at the Grade 4/5 level. Grade 4’s registering at the Grade 4/5 level must have already played at least one season in the TCYBA and be physically ready to play with others that are their age and older. Exception: Players that are entering grade 2 may participate in the grade 2/3 division. 

Parents of returning players may choose which division is most suited to their child’s development (both physically and emotionally). Coach’s children can be in either grade (even if they are new players to the TCYBA). There may be some discretion involved if a child has played in other organizations, etc. A request for an exception must be made in writing to the League Coordinator.

What if my first choice team is full or all the teams in my division are full?

If the team you want to be on or all the teams in your age group are full, please register to the waitlist for any of the teams that will work for your schedule. You may be on multiple waitlists. 

If a space opens up on the team you are on the waitlist for, we will notify you by email. 

We will also notify waitlisted players if a new teams opens and is available to register to.

What if I can’t register online – is there another way to register?

If you are unable to reg­is­ter online please con­tact our league reg­is­trar –

Can my child play on the same team as a friend?

We will do our best to provide the opportunity for friends to play together however it is subject to our first come, first served policy. All registrations must be completed online.

I may be inter­ested in coach­ing this year. What train­ing do you pro­vide for coaches?

Our volunteer coaches are all provided with Jr NBA / TCYBA specific basketball resources.  Additional training opportunities will also be provided at no cost to coaches. Coaches do not require any previous experience. TCYBA is committed to providing you with coaching development. We have new online resources available through Basketball Immersion to provide you with drills, diagrams, audio and video instruction to run practices as well as coaching tools and practice plans.

Please contact the Coach Coordinator at if you are interested in getting involved as a volunteer coach. The Coach Coordinator will work with you to select a practice time/location that will fit into your schedule. Please contact the Coaching Coordinator ASAP to make arrangements for coaching a team.

How do I know which team to sign up for?

When you go online, you will be able to choose from a selection of teams that currently have space available. The location of the practice (school name), day of the week, and time will be listed on the Stack Sport Registration Site. Please refer to our FAQ on "How do I register?" for more information.

I do not live in the Tri-City area. Can I still reg­is­ter my child on a TCYBA team?

TCYBA operates in the Tri-Cities, New Westminster, Pitt Meadows and Maple Ridge. You are welcome to register your child on any of our teams, space permitting.

I may be inter­ested in assist­ing with the team, but am not com­fort­able tak­ing on a role as coach. Where else can I help?

There are other roles for volunteers. You could offer to act as “team parent” for phoning/emailing and other duties or as a gym supervisor on game nights.  

What if I am having trouble receiving communication emails from the League?
