U14 NE Knights Regional Tournament



End of Season Tournaments
  • Hosting clubs to cover the cost of the hall to spread the expenses as no player registration fees were collected this year.
  • Fees of €25 per team(€20 for ú18 3 V 3s) for AWAY teams - ie no team fees on day club is hosting. 
  • U18 3 V 3 teams should have a maximum of 4 players and any number of teams can be entered. 
  • In other age groups a maximum of 2 teams per event may be entered, so boys and girls tournaments can be played in one venue.
  • Medals to be presented to winning and runner up teams in each tournament
  • MVP awards to be presented at 'full team' tournament events
  • Clubs to each nominate a referee for U12, 14, 16 events - NELB will pay 'game' costs of the referees. Commissioners to be used at U18 3 V 3s.
Clubs should let me know as soon as possible what teams they will have for each event, but NO LATER than the meeting on 3rd March so draws can be made.
Where there are 4 teams two semifinals and a final will be played(Except 3 V 3s which will be 5 minute running clock games) and if there are only 3 teams we will use a round robin.
NE Knights Regional Squads
Due to school holidays the training date for all teams has been changed to Thursday 18th February - please make any players you have on those squads aware - as always players should bring a ball, snack and €5 for hall hire.
As there are still some places available on the U16 and U18 GIRLS squads it was agreed that clubs could send along players who were unavailable for any of the other session to try out for the last few remaining positions. This will not affect any of the girls already selected  and there is no guarantee that any further places will be allocated on those teams.
The players must be registered members of your club.
For the players already selected on any of the U16 or 18 squads the deposit of €200 for the trip to Poland(Weds 29th June - Monday, 4th July) must be paid at training on 18th February so that flights can be booked. Consent and medical information forms will also be given to players/parents at the training.
The planned trip for the U14 squads on w/e 19th/20th March has been deferred due to other commitments by the host club. The w/e of 2nd/3rd April has been provisionally set for the trip instead and as soon as details are confirmed we will let everyone know. Please let the players involved know.
If anyone has any contacts who might be interested in sponsoring anything for the teams please let the committee know.
Details about training/challenge matches  etc will be posted regularly on the NE Knights Facebook page:  www.facebook.com/ne.knights.3?fref=ts 
This is a closed page so facebook users need to apply to be friends to have access to the information.
We are asking Basketball Ireland to facilitate courses for the following: Coaching, Refereeing, Table Officials and Code of Ethics(Safeguarding 1,2,3) and we are hoping for a good response from clubs when they become available. As soon as I have any further details I will pass them on.
The next meeting is fixed for Thursday,3rd March in Billis Hall.
Best regards,

Tournaments 2016

Having explored a number of options it was decided at the last meeting to apply to participate in the International Basketball Tournament Gniezno in Poland. (https://www.facebook.com/International-Basketball-Tournament-Gniezno)
The tournament runs from 1st - 3rd July and Orla has confirmed with them that they will be happy to accommodate our U16 and U18 Boys and Girls teams.
Can you let your players have the following important information about the trip:
Wednesday 29th June - departure from Dublin Airport
Fri 1st - Sun 3rd July - Tournament
Mon 4th July - Return from Gniezno
Cost: €450- €500 approximately( includes all flights, accommodation, meals & tournament fees) - varying flight prices may affect the overall cost so cant be fully definite until flights are booked
As flights will need to be booked as soon as possible we will need to ask for the deposit/first payment of €200 by the end of January
Although Edinburgh BC were interested in hosting us again on Easter W/E the meeting felt that this would be very expensive - the hostel we used last year is not available either.
Both Dean and myself have been in contact with a member of the Titan's club in Galway, and they are interested in hosting us for a tournament on the weekend before Easter (19th/20th March)- nothing is finalised yet, but they will be able to organise accommodation for us in in a boarding school which would only cost €28 per person - as soon as we have more concrete information we will let everyone know. 
(If Galway doesn't work out we will look at another overnight option within Ireland)
