Kudos to Coach Don Drake

For Immediate Release - Ashburn, VA

The Farmwell Station Basketball League is proud to announce that one of our parents, Don Drake, has been nominated for the National Alliance for Youth Sports (NAYS) 2018 Youth Sports Parent of the Year.

Few have as much influence over a child's youth sports experience as a parent. The support and encouragement youth sports parents offer provides their children the enthusiasm to continue down the rewarding path of youth sports to learn both sport skills and life lessons on the field, court or rink.  “Even though Don's own kids are too old to play in our Farmwell Station Basketball House League, Don continues to help the league out by coaching multiple teams each year!” says Aubre Jones. “We don't pay our coaches, yet Don is always there for the league.  He helped evaluate the players before the season began.  He coached in the winter house league and the high school league.  He officiated game during the summer league.  He also assisted Bobby D'Agnese with Mack’s Blacktop Basketball program on Saturday mornings this summer.  Ashburn has many great parents involved with the FSBL, but Coach Drake stood out this year with his involvement with every aspect of the league.  I wish that the FSBL could have 100 Don Drakes coaching or being parents on the sidelines.”

The tremendous impact that parents have on youth sports programs across the country is evident by the hundreds of nominations received for the prestigious Parent of the Year award each year. Each year the National Alliance for Youth Sports and the NAYS Parent Orientation & Membership Program honor one outstanding sports parent as the NAYS Youth Sports Parent of the Year. The National Alliance for Youth Sports, a 501(c)3 organization is headquartered in West Palm Beach, Fla.  The winner will be announced mid-September. The award winner and one guest receive complimentary flight and accommodations to the Youth Sports Congress in New Orleans, LA during November 7-10, 2018 where they will be honored during the Awards Ceremony.

More information about the NAYS Youth Sports Parent of the Year award can be found at nays.org/awards.

When Summer League Met Blacktop Basketball

On Thursday, August 2nd, the FSBL Summer League had games scheduled at Belmont Ridge Middle School. When we arrived at the school, the FSBL was surprised to find out that BRMS had refinished their indoor basketball courts that day.  Thus, we couldn't play in the gyms. Joe Chang acted quickly and decided to play the games outside on the Blacktop Basketball Courts. This marked the first time in FSBL history that regular scheduled games were played outside!  And it also made for a beautiful photo of two games going on with blue skies in the background. Thanks for a great FSBL Summer League season!

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
