FSBL Travel Tryouts / House League Evaluations
by posted 08/31/2014
 
Travel Team Tryouts &
House League Evaluation Schedule


Please review the evaluation schedule below and determine the appropriate session for your child to attend.  All players in FSBL must attend an evaluation session in order to be placed on a house league team for the 2014 - 2015 basketball season.
 
All interested 6th, 7th and 8th grade boys and girls are welcome to try out for the travel teams.  The travel teams are generally for players who have played organized basketball for a number of years and possess above average basketball skills.  Only players who attend Farmwell Station Middle School - or live within the FSMS school boundaries - are eligible to try out for the travel teams.  If you attend another middle school, you are not eligible to try out for the Farmwell Station Middle School Travel Teams.  In order to tryout, players must be officially registered for the league and payment received before the tryout begins.  This can be online or in person at the tryouts.  Players and parents should consider three issues:
1) The majority of travel league games are played on Sundays (the majority of house league games are generally held on Saturdays);
2) Travel teams practice twice a week (house league teams practice once a week);
3) Players who make the travel team are required to purchase their own custom uniform.  Players are responsible for the uniform cost in excess of the registration fee uniform allocation.

w is the travel tryout schedule.

Article #2

 

Hello Everone:

In my previous comments I shared some things about FSBL.

Now I would like to tell you one of the things FSBL is doing this year.

We are proud to announce the celebration of our 20th season in Ashburn.

In conjunction with our 20th year celebration, we have chosen to recognize the fight against Breast Cancer as our 20th season theme. This year we will be partnering with the Susan G Komen Foundation and conducting some fundraising events to help assist with breast cancer research.

Our registration opens on Monday September 1, 2014. That’s just two days from now.

One of the easiest ways for each of you to participate and to donate to such a worthy cause is through our registration process. During the registration process, you will be given the opportunity to donate on the spot. It is quick and it is easy.

We have established a challenging goal for ourselves of $20,000 in donations.

Last season we had well over 900 players participate in our league.

We are asking everyone to donate at least $20 to help us reach that goal.

For families who are registering more than one child, we ask you to make a flat donation of $25

If you do not have a child in the league but you would like to donate, no worries.

Just go to the FSBL homepage and look for the “DONATE” image in the right hand column.

If you’d like to give more, we will accept donations in larger amounts. 

The first 800 individuals to contribute will be eligible for a SGK ribbon button that will identify you as a contributor in the fight against breast cancer.

You will notice a more visible sign of our fight against breast cancer on the sidelines. During the season you will see our coaches sporting pink polo shirts on the sidelines as a reminder to everyone how important it is to get involved in the search for a cure.

Hopefully, we can encourage our coaches to wear their pink shirts proudly out in public on days when they aren't coaching to show their support for the fight against breast cancer.

So the time is now ….. on your mark ….. get ready … get set ……. GO ! ! !

Search your soul and help us reach our goal

The FSBL is Playing for a Cure to Breast Cancer
by posted 08/08/2014
 

The Farmwell Station Basketball League will celebrate our 20th season this winter.  In recognition of this, the FSBL Board of Directors has decided to play this season for an important cause:  Breast Cancer Research.  During player registration, parents will be asked if they would like to make a donation.  We are hoping that every player 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.  When the season begins, our Coaches will stand out on the sidelines in their pink coaches shirts.  In addition, the FSBL hopes to unveil a few fun initiatives this season that are sure to be a hit with all the players!

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.
