School News



     The basketball program is open to all 5th, 6th, 7th, and 8th grade boys and girls who attend St. James / Seton (SJS) School or are Home School students in the St. James/St. Elizabeth Ann parishes.  

     If your child elects to go out for St. James / Seton Basketball this fall/winter; the registration process including the medical statement and payment of the participation fee will need to be completed online (debit/credit card via PayPal; note, you do not need to have a PayPal account to pay online).  Note: register and pay the participation fee by September 28th and you save $30!!!

     A reference document (Basketball Flyer 2018_19) is.

     Evaluations will be held in September 30th and/or October 7th at Roncalli High School.  For updated information regarding evaluation dates and times for each grade, please go to SJS Athletics (link) web site and click on the basketball link in the top right hand side of the screen.  Evaluation dates and times for each pertinent grade will be listed.  A slight change this year is we will have 2 evaluations for each boys grade.  Please try to have your son attend both evaluations if possible, but this hopefully will give everyone a chance to get to at least one evaluation.  If we end up having enough girls for 2 teams in any particular grade, I will send out information as to when and where we will hold evaluations.  Last year, no girl evaluations were necessary.
