What the Well-Dressed FSBL Player Wears!

FSBL Uniformity!

All players must be appropriately dressed to play in each game.  Each player must wear the league issued jersey.  One of the uniform requirements is that each player wear solid black shorts with NO horizontal or vertical stripes, NO words or markings unless the entire team wears the exact same design shorts.  We're seriously talking solid black!  A small, thumbnail-sized, branding logo such as a Nike “swoosh” is permissible.   A team may choose to wear team-logo shorts or other design shorts that match the Jersey as long as everyone on the team wears the same style, design and color shorts.

Players who show up to play without solid black
shorts will not be permitted to play in the game (unless their team has decided to go with an entirely different color of shorts)!  Before leaving home to come to the gym, make sure that your son or daughter is properly dressed.  One of our FSBL sponsors, Cheers Sports, carries all-black shorts.

FSBL has received some questions regarding the wearing of shorts with pockets. FSBL players must wear plain solid black shorts ​with no other colors or designs. The preference is that these shorts have no ​pockets. Players who wear shorts with pockets are required to keep the pockets empty while participating in games. If items are discovered in the pockets during the game, the player will be removed for the remainder of the​ game. Repeated violations will lead to further discipline.​

All Coaches must wear the league Coaches Polo or a NBA or WNBA Branded shirt of the team they coach.

Players on a team may wear undershirts.  The undershirt should match a color in the jersey or must be white tee shirts.  All players wearing undershirts on a team must wear the same color undershirt.  Players are not required to wear an undershirt under the jersey.  No jewelry, wrist bracelets, watches, necklaces or earrings may be worn by players at all during the game.  Finally, if a player wears eyeglasses - they must wear "rec specs" or a similar product - to play in games.  Regular metal framed glasses are no longer permitted in games.

FSBL Head Coaches Needed!
 


The FSBL relies on approximately 180 parents and young adults who volunteer their time each year to coach our kids!  We are reaching out to parents in trying to find coaches for these teams.

All coaching candidates must pass a league mandated background screening in order to coach in the league.

If you have friends in Ashburn or surrounding towns who might enjoy coaching in our league, please have them sign up to coach your son or daughter.  If you have an older son or daughter who has graduated from high school and lives in the area and knows basketball, ask them if they'd like to coach their younger sibling this season.  We need your help!  If you would like to coach, please register as a Head Coach online on the FSBL website.  We hope some of our parents will sign up to coach.  If you would like to coach a boys team, please contact Middle School Boys Deputy Commissioner, Leonard Tomlinson or Elementary School Boys Deputy Commissioner, Joe Chang  .   If you would like to coach that one girls team, please contact Girls Deputy Commissioner, Ted Jakuboswki at 

If you have a good knowledge of basketball, but you've never coached before, now is the time to give it a try by coaching in our House Leagues.  All great coaches started somewhere!  The commitment of coaching in the FSBL involves one 90 minute practice per week and one 60 minute game per week.  The FSBL provides 4 different Coach's Training days in November where our clinicians will provide you with drills you can use on the courts.  The league has a Coaches Meeting scheduled for Wednesday, November 1st at Farmwell Station Middle School that you can attend if you are interested in coaching this season.

Please step up and Coach this season!


Win or lose, all the kids who play in the league win when we have enthusiastic coaches on the sidelines working with our players.  Thanks, in advance, for your help,


Craig, Joe, Leonard, Karen, Ted & Emmanuel

PVOA Looking for Basketball Officials

The FSBL Is Looking for Coaches for the Winter Season!
 
The Farmwell Station Basketball League relies on approximately 180 parents and young adults who volunteer their time each year to coach our Ashburn youth players!  We will have approximately 850 players registered for the league this season.  We are now actively recruiting Head Coaches and Assistant Coaches to work with the players in the league this season.  Registration is now open on our website for all Coaching applicants.  All of our coaches (both Head Coaches and Assistant Coaches) go through a background check performed by the National Center for Safety Initiatives.

If you know any friends in Ashburn (or anywhere locally) who might like to coach a basketball team this winter, have them sign up to coach.  Father / Son and Mother / Daughter coaching tandems are definitely welcome.  Former FSBL players in the league who are now in college or who have graduated college and live in the area are also a great fit for the league.  You don't have to have a player in the league to coach a team. We would love to welcome back parents who coached in the league 5 or more years ago. We need coaches for both the boys and girls divisions. 

If you have a good knowledge of basketball, but you've never coached, now is the time to give it a try by coaching in our House Leagues.  All great coaches started somewhere!  The FSBL provides Coach's Training days in November where our clinicians will provide you with drills you can use on the courts. 

 
Please step up and Coach this season!

Win or lose, all the kids who play in the league win when we have good coaches on the sidelines working with our players.  Practices begin in November.

Youth Sports 101

Your child's success or lack of success in sports does not indicate what kind of parent you are.

But having an athlete who is coachable, respectful, a great teammate, mentally tough, resilient and tries their best IS a direct reflection of your parenting.

Do You Love Basketball?

On this Day in:
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.

Is Winning Everything?
"Losing is a learning experience. It teaches you humility. It teaches you to work harder. It's also a powerful motivator."

-- Yogi Berra
