NJB winter season registration starts on Sept 8th, 2021 - Now Open

Registration is now open for all new and returning players. Registration will be open until all slots are filled. Then anyone registering will be automatically added to the waitlist. Please share this link with anyone you think will want to sign up for our Winter Season.


***New Changes for 2021-2022***


There will be two levels for Division this season.

The first level will be Competitive, which will be a step below All Net. This division will follow modified high school rules. There will be 4 quarters with 1 quarter of guaranteed playing time for all players.


The second level will be Recreational. Recreational is meant for players that are new to basketball or are considered Developmental players. There is one practice per week which makes it easier for players that have other commitments and activities to attend. This division will follow regular NJB rules. There will be 5 quarters with 2 quarters of guaranteed playing time.


The teams will be formed through the draft. Coaches selected will be chosen based on experience with previous NJB teams. Details for the formation of the teams will be available prior to the player evaluation workouts.


All Net will be converted to Open Division for Boys and Girls teams. All Net teams will no longer have to play within district boundaries and preformed teams are welcome. All Net will continue to follow high school rules with 4- 8 minute quarters.

Registration 2021-22

This season, we will be keeping the registration system open until all available slots have been filled.

Registration does not guarantee a place on a team. Number of teams depends on availability of practice gym space and coaches. We strongly encourage parents to volunteer to coach. If we have to bring in a paid coach parents will have to pay the coach's stipend.

Wait list: Once capacity is reached based on the number of teams we have, then the remaining registrations will be considered waitlisted. Waitlisted registrations will be taken off the wait list in order of registration based on these priorities:

  • Parents who volunteer to be a Board member or a coach

  • Siblings of existing players

  • Time-based on registration date/time

Any player who does not get placed on a team will be fully refunded after the first week of practice (first week of November). After all teams have been announced and any openings have been filled by available players.

Non-Parent Coaches:

If necessary, we will search for “stipend” non-parent coaches to supplement the parent coaches. Parent coaches will have priority for coaching teams. Parents of the stipend coach must pay the coach's stipend. (for example- For a ten player team, each parent will have to contribute two $75 payments to the coach's stipend. Once after the 3rd game of the season and at the end of the season).


Volunteer Commitment

West San Jose NJB is a parent run volunteer organization. Most parent volunteers have children playing in the program. The program thrives with the dedication of its volunteers. If you want to volunteer your time as a Voting Board member, administrator, Coach, or event volunteer please indicate your position- interest when you register your child. While each position is different most require no more than one to two hours per week of commitment, mostly responding to emails. The Open Positions with descriptions will be posted on the website. We will be posting details of a Zoom call in the near future to discuss the Open Positions and other league news.


Regards,
