Coaches Clearances info

To our volunteer coaches: 

Thanks for volunteering to be a Head or Assistant Coach for Blue Eagles Basketball.  We’re truly appreciative of the time and effort you’re willing to give to the kids in our community program.  With nearly 550 kids registered for Blue Eagles Basketball (a new record!), we need as many volunteers as possible to help provide an understanding of the game and, just as importantly, an appreciation for teamwork in a fun environment.  As many of you know, there are few things as rewarding as coaching and mentoring kids on your own team.  Thank you!

We are still in definite need of additional head coaches (especially!) and assistant coaches.  If you are assisting, please consider becoming a head coach.  We will help to provide you all the necessary resources and information to make your season successful.

It's critical that you read the attached document thoroughly as it gives instruction on what’s necessary to receive your coaching clearances for Blue Eagles Basketball.  This is a necessary process to ensure the safety for all children in our program.  The sooner you begin the process of receiving your clearances, the sooner you can be cleared and able to begin practices with your team once the season begins.  If you have any questions, please contact Diana Wallbillich at dlwallbillich@gmail.com who leads this process for our organization.

If you have volunteered to coach the 9c-11c age group, evaluations will be on October 22nd.  Only cleared coaches can be allowed into the gym at Northampton Community College to view the evaluations.  Likewise, as other age groups begin to host their orientations, open gyms or evaluations in early-mid November, only cleared coaches are allowed to be on the court.  Don’t hesitate!!! Begin the process soon so that you are able to be on the court with your team and your team is scheduled for practice time as the season kicks off.

Each age level will have a coaches orientation or season-beginning meeting.  For coaches at the 9c level and higher, this meeting will be announced soon and will likely take place the week of October 16.

Thanks again for volunteering and, please, consider head coaching if you are not already and also encourage other parents to volunteer as a head or assistant coach.

Thanks,

Kurt Landes
