General Information

St. Bernard School fields multiple basketball teams - boys/girls and varsity/junior varsity. Practices begin in early October. Regular season games are usually scheduled from mid-November until February, with playoffs often extending into March. Our teams play in a variety of leagues - Hartford, Manchester, and Enfield CYO.  Practices are scheduled by the coaches and take place in the St. Bernard School gym. Please note that there are no games or practices if there is inclement weather, or if the schools were closed on that day for any reason.

Grades, Faith and Behavior

Grades and schoolwork are important. A ā€œCā€ average or better is required to play. Please see the Student Handbook for more information on academic probation. In addition, all coaches and players are expected to act in a way that displays Christian beliefs and demeanor. No bad language or disrespect is allowed. We are to play hard but also fair and with Christian ideals. There are codes of conduct for coaches, players and spectators per the Office of Religious Education(ORE) and the Office of Catholic Schools(OCS). Adherence by all is required or players/coaches will be subject to dismissal from activities.
 
Program
Players will learn basic dribbling, defense, proper shooting skills, passing, body positioning, man-to-man and zone defenses. Players learn offensive plays and have several defenses. Teamwork and sportsmanship are paramount to everything. Students also go through conditioning drills.
 
Volunteers
We always can use parents to volunteer to run the clocks, score and help with the concession stand during games.  Varsity players will be required to volunteer for one 4-hour shift. They can earn junior high service hours with this activity. To volunteer contact the coaches or Will Lorenz (860-986-2349.)
 
Cost
Once selected for the team, there is a fee of about $130 for each child.
 
Age Requirements
Each new player must provide a copy of their birth certificate. Each JV child must not be 13 by December 31st each season to play grade 5-6 JV basketball.  Varsity and girls have different age maximums (not 15 by December 31st).
