The following "Cheat Sheets" provide any specific rules and other information regarding the different house leagues:

As we enter another season of basketball, please remember as a coach, you have a huge impact on your players experience and growth.  Sadly, experts tell us that 7 out of 10 children permanently drop sports by age 13. Reasons include

  • Lack of fun
  • Lack of playing time  - See attached resource from PCA on play time for tips.
  • Afraid to make mistakes, too much pressure
  • Feeling disrespected
  • Coach played favorites, was a poor teacher

Clearly, coaches can directly impact these experiences.  What kids want from a coach:

  • Respect and encouragement
  • Positive role model
  • Clear, consistent communication
  • Knowledge of game
  • Someone who listens
