It is with great regret that I make this post.
Firstly, I want to apologize the entire FHC Jr A team, the coaches, and especially Joshua Bell and his family.
I am entirely responsible for this error. It is no secret, nor was it hidden, when Josh was born. I checked into this matter before the school year began. However, I was using an older version of the TDCAA Constitution and the rules were outdated. By the former age groups, Josh was eligible to play junior basketball. He was 15 on September 1st. The new rules which are based upon OFSAA age groups are according to the calendar year, making Josh 3 months too old for junior basketball, even though he is in grade ten and in his second year of high school.
At the beginning of the school year I should have re-checked and sought clarification from our league representatives. I didn't and I will regret this for the rest of my life.
This error was not intentional nor malicious. It was simply an error. I would like to also apologize to the entire junior boys' basketball community.
The Father Henry Carr basketball teams are a family and we will bond together to welcome Josh to the senior team and to support him, and to support the Jr A team as they will continue to compete and represent Fr Henry Carr.
