The JV boys participate in the Father Schaus league that starts in November and ends in March. The team is comprised of 5th and 6th graders. The JV league consists of 8-10 games, generally on Saturdays. Practices can be one or two days per week at the coach's discretion. There is a playoff tournament at the end of the season. Parental volunteers for scoreboard operation at home games is requested.
The Varsity boys participate in a Diocesan basketball league starts in November and ends in March. This league has 10 - 12 league games and playoffs. Practices can be 2 - 3 time per week at the coaches discretion. The varsity boys may also participate in many tournaments throughout the year. We make an effort to participate in as many High School sponsored tournaments as possible so that they can visit as many Catholic High Schools as possible (including Timon, Canisius, St. Mary's and St. Francis). The team is eligible to qualify for the Diocesan playoff tournament if they finish high enough in the standings. All tournament costs are covered by the QOH sports program. Parental volunteers for scoreboard operation at home games is requested.
Over the years, the Sports Program has adopted a uniform reuse policy from year to year. The policy enables us to keep costs down and also keep our sports fee as low as possible. While most of our uniforms are returned, the process of uniform collection has been extremely time consuming and has not been successful in collecting all uniforms. Despite hours of follow-up, we spend hundreds of dollars every year replacing unreturned uniforms. Due to this fact, we will adopt a refundable uniform deposit policy. Similar policies have been in place in other Catholic Schools and have been successful.
Please send in the Permission Form & two $15 checks payable to: Queen of Heaven by Friday, September 30th in one envelope to the school office (one check labelled “Sports fee”, the other labelled “refundable uniform deposit). No permission forms should be given directly to coaches. No cash will be accepted. Your refundable uniform deposit check will not be cashed unless we do not receive your uniform and will be returned upon return of your uniform. Please do not staple the checks to the form.
***** This cutoff date has been instituted because of the late number of signups in previous years. We need to know how many players are interested, so we can assign teams, get coaches, have enough uniforms ready and notify the different leagues of our intentions. If your permission form is received after the cutoff date, your child will be put on a waiting list and will only be added to a team if there is room.
Send in a signed Permission Form to the School Office (copies can be obtained on the school website or at the school office) – only choose 1 sport from the list above
Also a Valid Sports Medical Physical Form must also be on file with the School Nurse. If your child’s medical form at the school is NOT valid you will be notified. The Medical Sports Physical Form is good for 1 year with one exception. If your Medical Form is valid the first day of that sport’s practice it will be considered valid for that sport’s season. The school office has Sports Medical Forms or it is also on the school web site- click on athletics
By playing for a Sports Team at Queen of Heaven make sure you can attend practices and be available for the games. Sports schedules & seasons overlap – some school sports simply do not work out playing along with other school activities and outside interests.
** Both forms have to be turned into the School Office or given to the coach before any player can practice.
