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.

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.​

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.

The FSBL Is Still 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."
