WINTER SPORTS REGISTRATION
Registration for St. Michael sports for Winter 2020 is now OPEN! Go to http://register.smwarriors.com now to register for Basketball. Additional info for each sport is provided below, plus Coordinator contact information if you have any questions, would like to volunteer to coach, etc.
Basketball: Boys & Girls 4-8th grade | Fee range will be minimum of $125 up to maximum of $175 depending on additional facility costs
Regular Registration Deadline November 1 | Late Registration Deadline December 1
Practice start date is to be determined (7th & 8th grade boys and girls teams will have tryouts to select rosters for competitive teams); Games will tentatively start in early to mid December and go through mid to end of February with Tournaments being the last week of February.
Please note we are still awaiting guidance from both the State of Ohio Health Department as well as the Diocesan Recreation Association. With that in mind we will not be collecting a fee at registration in case the season is not approved. In the event we are able to proceed, each coach will collect individual registration fees and family fees. We are anticipating additional costs this year due to facility rental fees and additional cleaning fees. We are in the process of securing locations and janitorial contracts. Once these costs are finalized, we will determine the final registration fees for the 2020-21 season. We will do our best to keep the fees to minimum, and as always we are happy to provide financial assistance to any players in need.

A "Family Fee" of $100 is charged to each family 1x for the 2020-21 school year; this will be added at checkout to your first registration for the school year.
Late registrations will have $15 added to them. This is in line with other area leagues; more importantly (although it may not seem like it), late registrations can cause a lot of additional work for coaches and coordinators trying to finalize rosters and team sizes, so we are trying to discourage the practice. Registration deadlines have been better aligned with the start of each sport's season to help.
Refunds for withdrawals will also be charged $15. Again, this is in line with other area leagues and is an effort to discourage the practice so we can be more certain of numbers when finalizing rosters. Having said all that, if you or someone you know has a financial situation that is preventing a child from being registered, please let us know. We want every child to have the opportunity to play!
In order for players to participate in a St. Michael athletic opportunity, at least one parent/guardian must complete Play Like a Champion training course for parents. This is a one-time training focused on promoting character education through sports participation.
League paperwork must be completed online this year. After you have registered and paid via http://register.smwarriors.com, go to the diocese page to complete the online forms:https://www.dioceseregister.com/register/.
