Player Participation Policy/Rule:
When registering with Burlington Basketball House Leagues or Mini-Ball Programs, the parent/guardian is stating that the player being registered will not be playing REP basketball with any club, other than Burlington Basketball Panthers between
September 1st 2010 and June 30th 2011.
Failure to comply with this Participation Rule will cause the immediate removal of the player from the program with NO REFUND being issued.
Please note our REFUND Policy as posted online.
(If an exemption is requested, that can be initiated by emailing email@example.com with your request prior to your registration.)
Reasoning behind Policy:
Burlington Basketball Panthers are the ONLY Rep teams affiliated and supported by Burlington Basketball. NO EXCEPTIONS.
Space Philosophy of our House League Programs:
Burlington Basketball attempts to provide as many UNIQUE Basketball playing opportunities for Burlington Youth as possible. This policy maximizes those spaces.
Burlington Basketball has access to a limited number of gyms and volunteers to accommodate our house league programs and 1000 players. These limitations are outside the control of Burlington Basketball. This policy maximizes the use of gym time and reduces the demands on Coach volunteer time.
Athlete Development Model (ADM):
Burlington Basketball House League and Panthers programs are created to work in harmony as part of the Burlington Basketball Athlete Development Model (ADM). This Model reflects years of research and testing not only by Burlington Basketball but also is reflective of the LTAD (www.ltad.com) and its’ associated recommendations.
This policy ensures the club can supervise our ADM and it’s implementation.
Burlington Basketball House League and Panther coaches have a “common” goal and athlete development philosophy for any player registered with Burlington Basketball. This “common” philosophy means any of our players can play both House League and Panthers without the issues of player confusion on skills development or the overtaxing of a young athletes body.
This policy ensures the club revises its’ policies to best support its’ players.
In an effort to allow any Burlington Basketball Player the Opportunity to play REP basketball, if they possess the skill level and desire necessary, Burlington Basketball has made it’s Panther Program part of it’s House Leagues. This partnership creates administrative and overhead savings that can then be passed on to all our players.
