FSBL Girls Basketball Clinics

The FSBL will be conducting 3 FREE Basketball Clinics for young ladies in the 3rd through 8th grade on Tuesday nights during the month of September.  If your daughter has friends who have never played basketball, they are invited to attend. The clinics will be led by FSBL Commissioner, Craig Newman, Girls Deputy Commissioner, Ted Jakubowski and other FSBL coaches.  Young ladies who want to improve their basketball skills or who are new to basketball and thinking about playing in the FSBL this season are welcome to attend.  Please bring a basketball if you have one.  Here are the details:

FSBL Update: Registration Is Open

Player registration is now open for the winter 2019 - 2020 FSBL House League (3rd - 8th graders), High School League (9th - 12th graders) and Middle School Travel Teams.  **There is only one registration for all 3 programs.  Players in the 6th, 7th & 8th grades who tryout for the middle school travel teams - and do not make those teams - will automatically roll over into the house league and will be required to attend the player evaluation sessions for that division.  All parents should closely read the FSBL refund policy on the registration page if your son or daughter is not interested in playing in our House Leagues!  Players from all Loudoun County elementary and middle schools are welcome to play in the FSBL House League.  Players from all Loudoun County high schools are welcome to play in the FSBL High School League.  Only players attending FSMS - or home schoolers who live within the FSMS district - can try out for the travel teams.  If you live next to any new families that have recently moved into the area, please let them know about the winter basketball league.  The FSBL is also seeking new Head Coaches & Assistant Coaches in all divisions.  High school players can register anytime before November 24th with no late registration fees!

As we are celebrating our 25th year as a league, we would also love to see some of our fantastic Coaches who coached in the league back in the late 90's and early 2000's return to coach a team this season!

See the calendar on the FSBL website after September 1st for exact times and locations. All players who wish to tryout for the FSMS travel teams must register on the FSBL website prior to the tryouts.

FSBL Update: Head Coaches Needed!
 
basketball coaches


The FSBL relies on approximately 180 parents and young adults who volunteer their time each year to coach our kids!  We are reaching out to our parents in trying to find coaches for these teams.  We opened up registration for the winter league on August 1st.  The league really gets going with travel tryouts and player evaluations begining the last weekend of September.

All coaching candidates must pass a league mandated background screening 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 sign up to coach your son or daughter.  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 their younger sibling this season.  We need your help!  If you would like to coach, 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.  The FSBL provides 4 different Coach's Training days in November where our clinicians will provide you with drills you can use on the courts.  If you coached in the league back when your children were young, we'd love to have you back!

Please step up and Coach this season!
 
We are actively looking for Head Coaches in the all divisions - but especially in our youngest divisions: Boys 3 and Girls 34
 

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,

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?

ashburn youth 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.
