FAQ


When can I register for the 2020-2021 season? Our registration for U18 (High School), U15, U13, U11 and Tykes open on July 1, 2020.
How can I register online if my email has changed from last year? Please do not create a new registration account if you registered any of your children last year.  Rather, login with your old credentials/email and update your email address under "My Account".  Only create a new account if your family is new to Calwest. 
When does the season start? For U11, U13 and U15 - evaluations will start after the long weekend in September, 2020. You will need to go to 2-3 evaluations before teams are made. Practices will start around the last week of September - most teams will practice once per week, while the first and second teams in each age group generally practice twice per week. The games will start on the Saturday after the Thanksgiving weekend. U18 High School - evaluations will be in early September. High School seeding rounds will start on approximately the third week of September.  Tykes start at the end of September.
When will practices be? We won't know your child's practice schedule until all teams are made and gyms/practices are assigned. Your coach will submit one day that doesn't work for them and then it will be based on gym availability. The practice day could change from week to week although we try to keep as much consistency as possible.  Note that no refunds will be given if a child must withdraw due to conflicts with other activities.  
Do we practice and have games every week until the beginning of March? No. The season will be on hold (no practices or games) from mid-Dec 2020 until mid-Jan 2021. There will be no games on the Family Day weekend in February 2021. The season will wrap up the last Saturday in February unless you are going to provincials.
Can my child play on his/her friend's team? We only accept friend requests for Tykes - please email the registrar.  Teams for U11, U13, U15 and High School are set based on the results of our evaluations.
If Calwest is full, can I register my child with another zone? Calgary Minor Basketball rules state that zones must give priority to players residing within their boundaries. Once another zone's registration period for their in-boundary players is over, you may contact their registrar to see if they have space for you child.  Please do not register without first checking with the other zone's registrar.
