Sportsmanship Policies

Positive Environment for the kids!

Like all good sports programs ZYBC has a zero tolerance for bad sportsmanship and we all need to work together to make this happen!  We have high expectations therefore any Coach, Parent or Player that received a technical for unsportsman like behavior must immediately leave the facility and may not return the remainder of the event in order to preserve the integrity of the organization.  Thank you for understanding and supporting our mission!  I look forward to announcing at the end of the season that this policy never had to be enforced!

Respect the Officials!

All of our officials are qualified professionals, they are in charge of the game and have final say.  Have your players thank the officials at the end of the game!

Respect the Facilities!

Let's keep the gyms and schools clean, keep kids in designated areas only.   Make sure they are safe at all times. Thank you to our local schools for allowing us to host such events for our youth!

Be Kind & Generous towards the Score Board and Event Staff!

Please do not approach the scoreboard at any time.  The event staff enjoys interacting and seeing the kids have a fun day of basketball!  They've got it covered!

Coaching is for Coaches!

Your coaches work hard and look forward to putting all that hard work in motion come game time!  They will direct the players and look forward to hearing the parents cheering the team on!

The Day is for the Kids!

Let's make it a fun honest day of basketball and enjoy our kids, being kids, playing ball!
