Thank you for joining the Bay Basketball family! We're honored to coach your child and look forward to becoming apart of his or her development. Please help us in following these Club guidelines
Please walk your child back for the start of practice and walk back to pick your child up at the end of practice.
We have a ‘no parent at practice policy’. Please refrain from cheering or coaching your child during practice.
Please have player bring water, wear proper athletic attire (Bay Basketball Uniform), and basketball sneakers.
Please make sure hair is pulled back and hair is removed from eyes.
Do not coach your child during games. Allow players to become independent thinkers and problem solving leaders working with teammates. We want players communicating with teammates or listening to coaches for instruction and not looking at the sidelines to parental advise. Cheering and encouragement is of course welcomed at the proper time! Please give the coaches and fellow players space to play. Basketball IQ, flow and skill execution is best developed by trial and error, playing experiences and in the moment concentration. Please do your child a favor and limit in game cheering and all in game coaching and motivation. Allow coaches and teammates the chance to lead and direct.
If you do not support the practice methods or the coach please remove your child from the program. Undermining a coaches leadership, authority and a player / coach relationship is unproductive and a refund will be issued.
3-Person Policy. At all times 1 Coach and 2 players are required to be present. Never leave your child alone. Make sure coach or other present is present prior to leaving. Please remain present if there is only 2 players and one coach or parent, coach and player are present.
