On the weekend, I like playing basketball with my kids.

On weekend, I like playing basketball with my kids.

However, when using the plural form, you can optionally omit "the" and say "on weekends".

My wife hates working on weekends

He likes watching baseball on the weekends

We don't normally use the plural form after the preposition "over". Generally, a sentence like this would sound very odd to a native speaker:

He likes watching baseball over (the) weekends
