INTERESTED IN COACHING?
We are currently taking coaching applications for the 2019-2020 season. Anyone interested in a head coach or assistant coach position must fill out an application by September 5th, 2019. Both new and returning coaches MUST turn in an application. Here is a link to our coaching application:
Player registration for the 2019-2020 season will open the first week of August. Details will come out in another email announcing the opening of registration.
New for the 2018-2019 season. All parents, coaches and players will be required to sign a Code of Conduct form prior to the first practice of the season. Parents, please read through the Player Code of Conduct form with your son in case they may have questions about something they might not understand.
We are joining a lot of associations across the country and state in launching these Code of Conducts. Some associations are predicting a shortage of basketball referees for this upcoming season and some associations may have a hard time finding officials for their tournaments. Based on surveys and questionnaires, more and more officials are quitting citing "abuse" from parents, coaches and players.
Should you observe any unsportsmanlike behavior from any parent, coach or player (from Jefferson or any other association), please report this to the JBTBA Board immediately.
Code of Conduct Forms, as well as questions regarding the forms, can be sent to Tom McInerney at Tom@mcinerney.biz.
Forms are below:
