Welcome to the FSBL
Come on out for Mack's Blacktop Basketball

Mack's Blacktop Basketball

Trailside Middle School

3rd Session: Saturday, July 15th

The FSBL is back on the courts this summer with Mack's Blacktop Basketball at Trailside Middle School.  This free, instructional program will run for 6 Saturdays and end on Saturday, August 5th.  Though a majority of the teaching is done inside, we do get the players outside for some outdoor play each session.  Wouldn't you rather have your young athlete out on the courts playing basketball instead of in front of the X-Box?  Come on out and play!  Looking for a few FSBL coaches to join us on the courts to help Coach D'Agnese run Mack's Blacktop Basketball this summer!  For those who don't know, Mack Butts was a Coach and Board Member with the FSBL for only a short time, but he was truly dedicated to helping the young basketball players in Ashburn be better players.  Mack passed away from cancer in March, 2015 and the FSBL has chosen to carry on this free summer program that Mack helped run for 2 summers!

Open to all players in the 3rd - 8th grades.

Boys Session runs from 8:00 - 10:00am

Girls Session runs from 10:00am - 12:00pm

There is NO REGISTRATION for this free program.  Just show up ready to work on basketball skills.  All players should bring a basketball - with their name on it - each week.  Parents need to make sure that they return to the gym to pick up your child just prior to the end of each session.  Please contact Bobby D'Agnese at dagga1958@gmail.com for additional information.  See you on the courts!

**Registration for the FSBL Basketball Season will open on August 1st!

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 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.  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 desperately 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.  We encourage Moms to come out and coach!

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
