House League Evaluation Schedule

 

In order to participate in FSBL House League Evals you must:

You must be registered in FSBL and the registration fee must be paid.
 
You can reside anywhere in Loudoun County.
 
Parents are permitted to attend the Travel Team Tryouts and the House League Player Evaluations.  Please follow our FSBL Covid-19 Policy that is posted on the FSBL website in regard to requirements.
 
You should bring your own water bottle. It is not recommended that you drink from water fountains but they may be used to fill a water bottle.
 
You must bring your own basketball to tryouts. A basketball will not be supplied for your use.
 
Everyone will enter Farmwell using the door by the A/C units and will depart using the gym door. At Elementary schools please use the designated door for entry and the designated door to exit.
 
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 2022 - 2023 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 home schoolers who 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.

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.

*Below is the travel tryout schedule and the house league evaluation schedule.  Locations of each tryout or evaluation are subject to change.  Players should arrive at least 15 minutes before the start time.

FSBL House League Evaluation Sessions

All players must attend the one evaluation session based upon the first letter of their last name.  Players should arrive 15 minutes early to check-in and receive jersey numbers prior to the start of each session.  If you son or daughter can not attend their assigned evaluation session, they may attend the other regular session for their grade or attend the make up evaluation session.  We would like to stress that you should try to avoid the make-up evaluation night!  Our make-up evaluation nights are very crowded and congested - so try to come prior to the make-up days.

Coaches Needed for FSBL Winter Basketball Program!
 
basketball coaches


The Farmwell Station Basketball League relies on parents and young adults who volunteer their time each year to coach our Ashburn youth players! We are actively recruiting Head Coaches and Assistant Coaches to work with our players in the FSBL Winter League.  All coaching candidates must pass a league mandated background screening performed by the National Center for Safety Initiatives in order to coach in the league.

If you have friends in Ashburn or surrounding towns who might enjoy coaching in our league, please have them register to coach.  If you have an older son or daughter who has graduated from high school or college and lives in the area and knows basketball, ask them if they'd like to coach.  We need your help!  Please register as a Head Coach by clicking on the bouncing basketball below!

If you have a good knowledge of basketball, but you've never coached before, now is the time to give it a try by coaching in our House Leagues.  All great coaches started somewhere!  The commitment of coaching in the FSBL involves one 90 minute practice per week and one 60 minute game per week on Saturdays.  If you coached in the league back when your children were young, we'd love to have you back!  If you played in the league before graduating from high school, we'd also love to have you back coaching a team if you think you can coach.

Please step up and Coach this season!
 

Win or lose, all the kids who play in the league win when we have enthusiastic coaches on the sidelines working with our players.  Thanks, in advance, for your help.  Contact the appropriate deputy commissioner for more information.

Contacting an FSBL Board Member
When you have a need to contact the FSBL BOD. please remember the following:
 

1.  Always include your first and last name.

2.  Always include your child’s first and last name.

3.  Always include the grade your child is currently attending.

Calendar is loading...
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.

Loading Weather...
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. 

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!
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.
