BASKETBALL

LEAGUE

What is it?

The aim of the LOVE BASKETBALL LEAGUE is to provide appropriate and high quality basketball competition for children aged 7-12 years..

We have an emphasis on HAVING FUN and DEVELOPING SKILLS.

 

The League has been split into 2 Tiers:

ROOKIES - for the beginners

JUNIORS - those with a bit more experience

There will be 5 Teams who are represented in both the Rookie and Junior Tiers:

DRAGONS // BEARS // SHARKS // PANTHERS // TITANS

 

Our Sponsors...

 

We are proud to be sponsored by BISHOP FLEMING CHARTERED ACCOUNTANTS who have helped us too buy T-Shirts for all the children competing.

We can only function in the way that we do - removing barriers to accessing sport - because of relationships with Businesses, Schools and Community Groups like this

We are looking for additional sponsors to help us buy kits for each team, allowing them to play their matches in full basketball gear.

Our Values...

  • Perseverence

  • Respect

  • Courage

  • Self Control

  • Forgiveness

  • Gratitude

We believe in competition and encouraging the players to try their best to win every time they step onto the court and contribute in every possession. However, we will always encourage them to do it in a way that honours others above winning - helping them to win and lose well. To serve our vision we have a number of Core Values, ways of doing things and behaviours that we want to establish with all participants.

 

Our Behaviours...

  • Before every game all players starting the game will shake hands with the opposition and officials

  • When players are substituted all players on the bench and coaches give them a high 5 or handshake

  • After the match all players are to thank and shake hands with the opposition and officials before giving the opposition a shout

  • Each team will nominate a ‘Most Valuable Player’ from the opposing team

Our Communication...

  • Players and coaches can only be encouraging to each other and not criticise

  • We take responsibility and don’t attribute blame

  • We are honest if we see something that a referee didn’t

  • We all try to help each other to have fun and improve together

  • We understand that people make mistakes and do not argue with officials
