Welcome to the FSBL
We have lost a True Champion

 

It is with deep sadness that we inform you that Mack Butts passed away peacefully on Sunday, March 22nd after a two year battle with colon cancer. Mack was only 48 years old.  The FSBL not only grieves at the passing of a man with a heart of gold - but also for the loss his family suffers. Our hearts and prayers go out to Tonya, Tiffany, Brittney & Jaylen. 

Funeral services for Mack will be held on Saturday, March 28th. Visitation will take place at 10:00am at The Community Church (19790 Ashburn Road, Ashburn, VA  20147).  Services will take place at 11:00am. Internment will be held at 1:00pm at the Chestnut Grove Cemetery (831 Dranesville Road, Herndon, VA 20172).

FSBL: The Butts Family Still Needs Our Help!

 

To Our FSBL Family:

Mack Butts served as the FSBL Rules Coordinator this past season and also coached in the league during the 2013 - 2014 season. However, his greatest contribution to the league was volunteering his time the past two summers in running the FSBL’s Blacktop Basketball program on Saturday mornings in July and August. This was all done to help the young players in Ashburn improve their basketball skills in the off-season. With Mack's passing, the league has lost a true champion.

Mack's family still needs our help!

Even with health insurance, the costs of medicines, in-home care and hospice care was a huge burden to the Butts family, depleting much of their savings. Mack fought a courageous fight - but with a steep financial loss.  Below is a link to the Fund Me account that was created for the Butts family last month.

Please keep Tonya and their children in your prayers as they go through the unimaginably difficult days and months ahead.

The FSBL is Playing for a Cure to Breast Cancer

The Farmwell Station Basketball League is celebrating our 20th season this winter.  In recognition of this, the FSBL Board of Directors decided last July to play this season for an important cause:  Breast Cancer Research.  During player registration, the FSBL collected $2,500 in donations.  We are hoping that every family in the league will make a donation.  Whether your donation is $5, $10, $25 or $50, every cent will go to the Susan G Komen Foundation on behalf of the FSBL players.  Our Coaches are looking good in their pink coaches shirts on sidelines.  If you did not make a donation during player registration in September or October, please consider making one now by clicking here!

FSBL Athletes in Action!
Sportsmanship
Something to think about while watching your son or daughter play in FSBL games this season:

1.  These are kids.

2.  Basketball is a
      game.

3.  Parents should
      cheer for
      everyone!

4.  The referees are
      human and some
      times make
      mistakes.

5.  Your child is not a
      professional
      athlete playing
      for a million
      dollars ..... yet!


If you disagree with these statements, please contact FSBL Commissioner, Craig Newman:
  commish@fsbl.orgHe'd be happy to explain them to you!

FSBL Rule 7.c

Parents are required to notify the FSBL Board Of Directors, within forty-eight (48) hours, when their child is suspended or expelled from school. If the BOD is not notified within forty-eight (48) hours of any such suspension/expulsion then upon discovery the child will be expelled from FSBL immediately for the remainder of the current season and the entire next season. 

Wear RecSpecs!
If your son or daughter wears regular eye glasses to see like those pictured below, they are not permitted to be worn in practices or games in the FSBL. Before the season begins, please have your player fitted for a pair of RecSpecs or another brand of prescription sport goggles.
