Uneven Start - We can do better

The season is underway with games played by more than 190 teams across all leagues from 5th to 8th grade, Boys and Girls, and Divisions 1, 2, and 3. Our hope for this season is to "return to normal". We removed all but one "COVID" rule and we welcomed back our neighboring counties (Loudon, Prince William, Arlington).  So far so good.

In an effort to develop younger player skills, we are running a pilot program in the Girls 5th Grade Division II league. We've asked the coaches to focus on man-to-man basketball skills, and not use zone defenses. I was quite impressed with the first games last Saturday. All of the coaches are doing a great job in exploring this approach.

Unfortunately, the weekend also featured violations of our sportsmanship code of conduct. While a small fraction of the games played, the number of incidents in one weekend is unacceptable and a dramatic increase over the past few years. These incidents are disturbing - they include fights, accosting officials and opposing team personnel, and the use of inappropriate language -- all in front of children we are trying to shape and develop. 

We have convened the Sportsmanship Committee for the first time in several years to review these incidents. Rest assured, FCYBL will not allow these violations to continue.

Club Reps, Coaches and Parents - we can and will do better.

We are underway !

The FCYBL 2022-23 Season kicked off last night with 8th grade games.   

Thanks to the coaches, parents, players, club reps, and FCYBL board for getting us to the starting line - special thanks to our scheduler Charly Chandler. 

Game Day Reminders:

  1. Cheer your teams in a positive manner.
  2. Model sportsmanship behaviors you want your children to learn.
  3. Resist the urge to contest calls - do no shout at officials - focus on your players.
  4. Coaches print rosters from FCYBL registration system - use that roster to enter players into the official scorebook.
  5. Only water is allowed in gyms.
  6. Work Hard, Play Smart, Have Fun
  7. Honor the Game

Reach out if you have any questions or concerns.
