|It's no surprise to us that during tournament play we see the competition getting stronger as teams work hard to win the #1 spot in their division. With 1 week left in our basketball tournament we would like to remind everyone about sportsmanship. Our staff including the referees and gym supervisors work hard so that everyone can have fun and enjoy the game. Please ensure you and your team are working towards this same goal. A sportsman has been defined as a person who can take loss or defeat without complaint, or victory without gloating, and who treats his opponents with fairness, generosity, and courtesy. Unsportsmanlike behavior, according to the NCAA, is "to act in a manner unbecoming a fair, ethical, honorable individual. [In basketball] it consists of acts of deceit such as accepting a foul that should be charged to a teammate; faking being fouled; throwing a free throw awarded to another; disrespect such as making debasing or critical remarks about or to an official or an opponent; vulgarity, profanity, filthy language or obscene gestures whether or not directed to someone." Please remember that we are a rec league program, we want to encourage healthy competition and foster a positive atmosphere. Keep in mind that mistakes happen but everyone should remain focued on respecting each other and having a good time.|
You may have noticed that some program fees have increased. It is our priority to keep costs down enabling us to pass the saving on to you. However some costs continue to increase; the biggest factor is the overall increase in demand for available gym space, not just from our own organization but from others as well. One of our highest priorities is making sure that we are getting quality facilities for both basketball and volleyball leagues. We will continue to make every effort to keep our costs low while we search for facilities that will enhance our programs and meet your needs.
