5. All players must conform to expected guidelines concerning behavior as displayed on our website (Players Code of Conduct÷ www.kelownamba.com
6. 1. The coaches and conveners must be more selective at evaluations.
2. We have allowed 11 players per team in the past to accommodate the total # of players registered in a division. Once we need to go to 12 per team that is when we have looked to add another team. We do not want a team to have 11 that includes play ups. Trying to define our first criteria for allowing play ups which is ( if there is room in the higher division
3. Alternately, if a higher division team is not full, remaining playups won't be used to fill the spots unless they are truly capable. This decision is made by the majority of coaches present on each evaluation night.
4. Coaches with their own kids in a playup situation can create difficulty for conveners to confirm their coaching list. The coach should communicate this with the convener of both divisions before evaluations.
5. All players requesting to be considered to play up (1 division only is allowed), MUST show up at the evaluation of the higher division, or they will not be approved to play up.
6. Players and parents cannot request special placement (being with friends, being with a special coach, car pooling, etc.)
7. Parents will abide by the KMBA (Parent Code of Conduct÷ and (Zero Tolerance Policy÷, both as displayed on our website.
8. The KMBA reserves the right to release any player or coach from the KMBA.
9. We expect players, coaches, and parents to refrain from any form of criticism directed toward officials, coaches or other players. A positive approach to all circumstances is the example we want to set in our league.
10. Each player is expected to provide their own basketball, gym strip and indoor running shoes for evaluations.
