Remembrance Day Assembly and a Couple of Opportunities

Remembrance Day Assembly and a Couple of Opportunities
by Steve MacGregor - Thursday, 8 November 2018, 10:55 AM

A friendly reminder that we are holding our Remembrance Day Assembly tomorrow morning beginning at 10:15 in the "Big Gym."  Community members are welcome to attend.

Two opportunities for families in our community have recently come my way:

The first is a parent evening on the subject of Internet Safety and Digital Literacy for Parents and Care Givers.  This session is being held at North Saanich Middle School on Tuesday, November 20th.  More information in the attached poster.

The second opportunity is for children from K-4 who might be interested in playing basketball outside of school time.  That information is below.

We'd love to see you at the assembly tomorrow if you are able.

Since Night League basketball really doesn't start until about Grade 5, SPABA (Saanich Peninsula Amateur Basketball Association) is trying to get younger kids involved, to stoke that fire and love of the game even earlier! To that end, we are running a 1-hour session on Sunday November 25th at North Saanich Middle school from 4pm-5pm.

We intend to keep it a small group - maximum of 20 kids - run by some of our current coaches as well as former local high school players so that each child gets some individual attention. Focus is on fitness and fun, with the first 40 minutes or so being skills and drills followed by a controlled scrimmage.

And as a promotion for this initial session, each child will get a T-shirt and their own basketball (to keep!). Cost will be $10 a child.

Please fee free to forward to any other families on the Peninsula who would ultimately feed into the SPABA Night League Basketball program.

For more information or to register, please email ERIC ROWE (SPABA Coaching Coordinator) at


Again, here are the details:

WHO                  Boys and girls in grades Kindergarten up to and including Grade 4
WHEN                Sunday November 25th, 4-5PM
WHERE              North Saanich Middle School
COST                  $10 (includes free basketball and T-shirt)

Please wear athletic attire and indoor running shoes.
