EXPECTATIONS FROM OUR PARTICIPANTS:
1. Mandatory coaches' meetings for our basketball programs. A representative of your school needs to attend the FIYA meeting in the region where your school team will play. If your school cannot send a representative to attend the mandatory coaches meeting, we suggest you seriously consider NOT registering a basketball team for your school. This is when all important factors, information, dates, participation standards, league operations, regulations, etc. are reviewed and it would be extremely difficult to have your team in the know and effectively communicating with us and the rest of your league if you cannot send a rep.
FIRST MANDATORY COACHES MEETING: December 10th
*The dates and locations of such meetings will be shared on a later day.*
2. Sportsmanship: FIYA's mission is to positively "Strengthen Schools Through Sports" and t
4. Communication: In order to ensure quality care for our teams and to keep our leagues functioning smoothly and positively, we MUST have all school representatives and coaches on the same page, cooperating with the FIYA team, and following the same criteria / guidelines on which our programs are founded.
We expect our coaches and school representatives to provide their game scores, notify us ahead of time on anything from schedule changes, team forfeits, and respond to any other important information asked by the FIYA Team throughout the season and are expect to be done so by their deadlines accordingly.
We believe there is never such thing as over-communication, so if you ever have questions or concerns please bring them to our attention and thoroughly commuincate with us throughout the season.
5. Your Contribution to FIYA: As a nonprofit, FIYA relies tremendously on the efforts of its every moving parts including: the FIYA Operating Team, our schools, our coaches, administrators, volunteers, student athletes, sponsors, partners, and donors.
In that same spirit we fully expect active participation, involvement, and following the same criteria / guidelines on which our programs are founded from all of our participants.
Our student athletes and community are the fore-focus of our organization, and we expect all of our school representatives to respect that and be fully proactive in our efforts.
We call this our #togetherFIYA movement and remind our community that our organization is what it is today because of our unified efforts and commitment to serving these Los Angeles students and schools.
Thank you for your interest or continued participation in FIYA Sports, and we look forward to having you a part of this year's basketball season!
