FSBL: The Butts Family Needs Our Help!

 

To Our FSBL Family:

When registration for the 20th season of the Farmwell Station Basketball League started last September, the FSBL decided to dedicate the season to Breast Cancer Research - and we teamed with the Susan G. Komen Foundation to raise approximately $2500 from you, the families of the FSBL.

For the last two seasons, Mack Butts has been the Rules Coordinator on the Board of Directors of the FSBL. He also coached in the league last season. However, his greatest contribution to the league has been 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. Mack ran most of the Boys player evaluation sessions held last October.

Now, Mack and his family need our help!

Mack was diagnosed with Stage IV colon cancer in early 2013. It started off as a cancerous obstruction in his intestine, which after two surgeries and months of unsuccessful and difficult chemotherapy treatments, quickly spread to his stomach lining. After visiting several hospitals for different opinions and treatment options, Mack began another more rigorous round of chemotherapy in early 2014 which, unfortunately, did not work.

Mack visited the Cancer Treatment Center of America last November and has been receiving weekly treatment there for the past few months. While the treatment was helping, it was not helping fast enough. Even while receiving these treatments, you could always find Mack in the FSBL gyms on Saturday watching FSBL games and enforcing FSBL rules! 

Mack’s very last hope was a surgery called the HIPEC procedure, which is designed to attempt to kill any remaining cancer cells by circulating a heated chemotherapeutic solution throughout the abdomen. Earlier this month, the surgeons tried their best to help Mack, they realized that the cancer had spread too quickly and they could not perform the surgery. There is little treatment they can offer at this time. Right now, Mack is unable to eat due to the tumors blocking his small bowel and is receiving 24 hour pain medication and nutrition intravenously.

Mack is married to Tonya, and together they have 3 children: Tiffany (24), Brittney (17) and Jaylen (11). Tiffany works full time, Brittany is due to graduate high school this June, and Jaylen is in his first year of junior high. What further complicates things is that this past October, after 18 years with the same company, Tonya lost her job (due to a corporate restructuring) and because of that, their health insurance expires on April 30, 2015. The health insurance is essential and covers his medication, nutrition, and at home hospice care.

Mack has always been a very strong, honest, and loving father and husband. He has spent a lot of time in the last two years giving back to the Ashburn community. He was a contributor during the September 11th rescue efforts at the World Trade Center in New York City. He also has worked in various branches of law enforcement before being forced to go on disability leave.

With your help we would like to give him a chance to continue to fight like we know he can. If you can help financially, it would be such a blessing to the Butts family. The medical coverage is almost $3,000 per month, so we are trying to raise at least 6 months of coverage for their family, along with money for their other incurred expenses as a result of his illness (i.e. travel, hotels, hospitals, childcare, etc.)

Below is a link to the Fund Me account that has been created for Mack in the last two weeks.

http://www.gofundme.com/lddsmo

Along with FSBL Commissioner, Craig Newman, and Girls Deputy Commissioner, Bryan Mabery, we ask that you share this campaign with your friends. Also, please keep Mack, Tonya and their children in your prayers as they go through the unimaginably difficult days and months ahead.

Thank you for your help in any amount you can.

Aubre Jones

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 Rule 6 to be Enforced Throughout the Season

Leave Your Basketball
@ Home on Game Days!


Parents, Coaches, and (most importantly) Players:

The LCPR Facility Attendents, the FSBL Board Members, and the Coaches in the league will enforce the following rules:

6f.  On game day
NO basketballs are allowed in the gym other than those in the coach’s possession.  Translation:  Players should not bring their personal basketball to the gym!  (unauthorized basketballs will be confiscated and will not be returned that day) 
 
6g.  Shooting at any of the baskets in the gyms or dribbling on the court (which includes the out of bounds area around the court) is not permitted by any individual(s) not playing in the current game during any stoppage of play. This (ibnlt) time-outs, half-time intermissions, end of each quarter and between games.
 

Please help us by letting all players know these rules that will prevent khaos from taking place during every time out and between all games!

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.

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 Code of Conduct Agreement

The FSBL Code of Conduct Agreement will pertain to all Players, Coaches, Spectators, Parents & Guardians.  The intent of this Code of Conduct Agreement is to promote sportsmanship and respect for other people and property.  The FSBL Board of Directors, Game Officials, and Loudoun County Parks & Recreation Facility Attendants have the authority to remove an individual from an FSBL playing facility.  Individuals ejected from a playing facility due to violations of the FSBL Code of Conduct Agreement are subject to a minimum of seven (7) days suspension and possible year-long expulsion from FSBL activities.  The Loudoun County Sheriff’s Department will also be notified of any extreme incidents. 
1. Good sportsmanship is expected and required from all Coaches, Players and Spectators at all FSBL games.
2. Foul language and/or profanity is strictly prohibited during FSBL activities.
3. Yelling at Referees, Coaches or Players is not acceptable and will lead to ejection from the facility.
4. Interference with the game by a parent, guardian, or spectator  is not acceptable.
5. Vandalism of property at any FSBL facility is grounds for immediate expulsion from the league.
6. Players have an obligation to their team and are expected to attend all practices and games.  Players missing three (3) or more practices or games without an excused absence may be released from that team for the remainder of the season.  Definitions for excused absences can be found on the FSBL website.
7. Intending to cause harm and / or causing harm to Players, Coaches, Referees or FSBL Board of Directors (including verbal threats) is grounds for immediate expulsion from the league.  Confronting coaches, referees or FSBL Board of Directors in a hostile manner either before, during or after a game will lead to immediate expulsion from the FSBL.
8. Children participate in the FSBL to improve their basketball ability and to have FUN!  The league is for the kids and not for the adults.
9. I will insist that my child treat other players, coaches, & officials with respect regardless of race, creed, color, sex or ability.
10. I will demand a sports environment that is free from drugs, tobacco and alcohol and will refrain from their use at all FSBL events.

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:

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.
