CAN MY CHILD PLAY UP A DIVISION?

The JTAA Rec Board discourages a child playing up an age division.  However, there are times when a child possesses the level of skill and talent justifying playing up a division.  A parent can request that his or her child play up.  The director of that division, with the consent of the President of the League and Board of Directors, may authorize the request. Play-up requests are evaluated for each current season. If your child played up a division last year, you must put in a request for the current season.

If you are interested, please contact your age division director as soon as your child registers.

WHEN IS REGISTRATION OPEN?

Online registration opens in mid to late September and usually carries through the month of October.   However, once a particular division reaches its player limit, registration for that division will close.  You may still register your child, but he or she will be put on a wait list in the order that he or she registered.  If players drop out or additional spots become available, players from the waiting list will be selected in the order of registration.

HOW MUCH IS THE REGISTRATION FEE?

The season registration fee is $130 for the first and second player, $100 for the third or more players in the same immediate family.  Discounts apply to members of the same immediate family who are registered during the same online session.

IS THERE A FEE FOR LATE REGISTRATION?

Yes.  A late fee of $20 per family is assessed after October 31st (which is the official date that registration is closed for all JTAA Rec Basketball).

DO I HAVE TO LIVE IN JUPITER OR TEQUESTA TO PARTICIPATE?

JTAA Basketball gives first priority in registration to residents of Jupiter and Tequesta. Resident living in other towns may register and play provided there are available spots on teams.

WHAT IS THE REFUND POLICY?

Refunds will be given, minus a cancellation fee, if requested in writing and received by our Registrar no later than November 15, 2019, 11:59 PM. After Nov. 15, 2019, no refunds will be given.

WHEN ARE PRACTICES SCHEDULED? WHEN ARE GAMES PLAYED?

Each team will have 2 scheduled practices per week, one at an indoor location and one at an outdoor location. Games are held on Saturdays. Practices and games are typically scheduled at Town of Jupiter, county or public school locations.

CAN I REQUEST FOR MY CHILD TO PLAY FOR A SPECIFIC COACH OR WITH A SPECIFIC PLAYER?

To maintain a balanced and competitive league, we do not honor requests for a player to be placed on a specific team, with a specific coach or player.  Players are assigned to a team based on a draft system.  Only coaches are allowed to attend the draft.    

CAN I REQUEST FOR MY CHILD TO  BE ASSIGNED A SPECIFIC PRACTICE DAY?

Given the large number of players that enroll each year and the limited amount of practice spaces available, we are unable to guarantee specific requests.  If you have a potential conflict, please email your age division League Director immediately, prior to draft week.  Regardless of any submitted request, players must be prepared to practice on the specific date and time assigned. Changes will not be made once assigned. Please see contact information for League Directors on the Volunteer Staff option above.  

 

WHAT HAPPENS IF AN AGE DIVISION CLOSES DURING REGISTRATION?

Many divisions fill up and close prior to this date.  If an age division closes, players will be placed on a waitlist. 

 Space permitting and with enough volunteer coaches, if we receive additional player requests, we may be able to open additional teams.  

 Even if you heard that a division is currently closed, please sign up to be placed on the waitlist.  As positions open up via player drops or if we have enough players to add additional teams, open positions are filled by taking players from the waitlist only.
