Team Formation Guidelines

  • For all sports – Nativity will abide by team formation rules of each sponsoring organization (CYO, SAY, Knothole, etc.)
  • For Girls Basketball, Boys Basketball and Girls Volleyball – in grades 6, 7, and 8, if enough students register to make 2 teams at a grade level, Skills Assessments may be held for team placement.  By registering, you agree to have your child participate in Skills Assessments and abide by the results.
  • For all grades – first priority is to form teams by single grade level only; however, it may be necessary to combine grades and/or have some players play up in grade (with parents’ permission) to “right-size” teams for correct balance of the number of players per team in order to maximize playing time.  By registering, you agree to abide by any decisions made with regard to right-sizing teams.
