Girls House League & Development Program

What to Expect
  • COVID MESSAGE: The Royals Board of Directors are working hard to ensure we are prepared to offer basketball programs when permitted to do so. Currently we are not able to offer the same program that we did last year and do not have access to gym permits yet. When we do receive access to gyms, we do plan on offering a program for girls in grades 1- 8 but unsure exactly what that program will look like. We are also not sure the restrictions that will be in place by the Government and Ontario Health. Our top priority will be to offer a program that is rewarding to the girls and safe for all those involved. If you have an interest in the program, please pre-register your daughter with the link provided. There is no financial commitment at this time (unsure of exact cost). When we do get the go ahead, we will be offering spots based on the order of who has pre-registered first. On behalf of the Royals Board of Directors, we hope that everyone is safe and healthy and hope to see everyone on the courts sooner than later.
  • Typical Program for girls grade 1-8:
  • We invite all players to join this program - Rep and non Rep players
