An Important Message from the League Administrators
The NCPL would like to say thank you for all the support over the 48+ years that we have been able to run a Basketball League. For those who haven’t heard, a few of the NCPL schools have decided to start their own Basketball league, leading into a full conference with multiple sports. They have started with Basketball this year for grades 4th to 8th.
Discussions started last October, 2014 between some of the AD’s in the NCPL, and we were asked in early June, 2015 to still stay active in assisting the new Leadership and supplying the referees for the new Basketball conference. We have been told that a few of the schools (AD’s and principals) wanted to take on more ownership, decision making around sportsmanship, scheduling, post-season tournaments, awards, etc, thus eliminating the need for outsiders from running this new league.
After all these years of being involved in running this league, this decision is still unsettling to us, since it still unclear of the role(s) we will be playing going forward, besides supplying referees for the new conference. Our goal has always been to offer a competitive basketball conference for Catholic schools in the Chicagoland area, where no school would have advantage over another. So no matter if a school entered one team or five, you would be considered equal and each school would have a say in how the league was run and the rules surrounding the league.
So the NCPL and the NCPL website is on vacation and no further updates will be made until we have a clearer decision or direction that we will be involved in. We are looking forward to work with the new leaders of the newly formed conference, but we will not be responding to emails submitted through the website going forward. If you have questions around the newly formed league please contact the AD’s and/or principals at St. Clement or St. Andrew for further direction.
Thanks again for your support throughout the years.
Bob, Tom and Keith
