Hello basketball players and families!! Welcome to the 2015 – 2016 season. Even though our first game is several months away, we’re already busy planning for a successful season. I know many of you are busy with summer and fall sports (football, baseball, softball, lacrosse, volleyball, etc), but please take a moment to read how we plan to provide the best possible basketball experience for your sons and daughters this upcoming season. Our program served over 1321 players last year, and to manage these teams successfully, we need volunteer support. There are several open positions on the basketball board and I’m looking for volunteers to help in a variety of roles. If you’re worried about time restrictions, please know that almost all of them can be shared, so please consider volunteering for one of these positions with a friend or neighbor. If you volunteer, you are exempt from the $55 volunteer opt-out fee.
As the Commissioner, I am solely responsible for the successful administration of this season and I have worked with other Fort Hunt Commissioners to create a Code of Conduct that will allow the athletes a greater opportunity to enjoy themselves. Please know that after safety, my next priority will be appropriate conduct. When you complete the online registration form for your child, you will have agreed to accept and abide by both the basketball player and spectator codes of conduct. Please take a moment to review these with your children. These codes of conduct can be found on the left side navigation links on the Basketball main web page.
As in previous seasons, we will offer a house league and a county league. Please refer to the INFO article in the center section of Basketball part of the web site to learn more about which program might be right for your child. We also offer scholarships. Generally, if your child is eligible for free or reduced lunch they are eligible for some fee reduction. You can learn more about this by selecting the Scholarship Information link on the left.
We at Fort Hunt Basketball are committed to the highest standards in our recreational programs for our youth. Together, with your help, I know we will have another great season.
I look forward to seeing each of you this season.
