Message and Update From Program Director

A message from our Program Director:

Good morning Parkland families!

It is official, REGISTRATION IS NOW OPEN! We are so excited to be back and can not wait to see you all back on the courts and in the stands.

We appreciate all the patience and understanding you have shown throughout the pandemic. We could not in good conscience put any of our valued members and volunteers at risk during that time. We also felt it best not to rush back to summer programming as vaccines were just getting rolled out and more importantly, we had just been locked up for over 15 months. Alberta’s Open for Summer” has been a great opportunity to get outside, visit loved ones we have not seen in so long, and enjoy the beautiful weather we get for such a short period of time. Again, we say thank you for trusting us to come back when we felt the time was right and safe for all.

Back to the exciting news that is basketball is back, we kindly ask you to spread the word, share this email, share our social media post’s, and tag us in your efforts to spread the word.

We are holding three draws for full fee reimbursement for all those that help spread the word. We understand covid has put a huge financial strain on many, so we want to do our part to give back. If you or anyone you know is struggling to make ends meet, please be sure to contact our treasurer at treasurer@parklandbasketball.ca as we can make payment arrangements and direct you to some of our financial aid programs. We believe everyone deserves the opportunity to play.

Parkland is always open to sponsorship and or donations, we will also be looking to secure any grants or bursaries we can to help reduce the cost to play. This fall we will be launching the adopt a lion program to help those in need.  

In addition to financial help, we need something a lot more precious, we need time. We need volunteers willing to share some of their time to make this program a reality.  We need coaches, team managers, and division coordinators. We are looking to recruit volunteers in all areas. All volunteers will receive some compensation towards their child’s fees at the end of the season.

As a member of the EYBA we are also responsible to provide volunteers to help work at their Casino fund raiser. Parkland will be offering an instant rebate of $25.00 /hr worked to those who complete one of our obligatory shifts.

Here are the Starlight Casino Shifts we need to fill:

  • Tuesday August 31st 11pm - 4 am / Count Room Supervisor / $125.00 instant rebate
  • Tuesday August 31st 10:30am - 7pm / Chip Runner / *Full Rebate for full shift* If this shift is split between two people ($112.50 each)

Please email vicepresident@parklandbasketball.ca if you are interested in working the Casino. Please include Casino in your subject line.

Please be sure to visit our website and update yourself with this year’s program details, and registration. Attached below are two links, one to program details and the other to ramp registration.

Welcome Back Parkland Basketball Families!

Sincerely, 

Jay Ouellette
