2015 -2016 League Points of Emphasis

As we approach the start of our 2015-16 season the following are things we would like parents, players and coaches to keep in mind:

1. Please review the 2015-16 League rules for any changes from last year.

2. The league has adopted a league wide code of conduct statement that goes hand in hand with the individual town code of conducts. We ask that everyone involved help us make this year the best in the area of conduct and sportsmanship.

3. Grades 6-8 will have four divisions named: East, North, South and West.

4. A reminder that Travel practices and games take precedent at all times over other leagues/initiatives. We work to minimize any conflict with Middle School Team leagues. New Winter AAU, catholic school and other recreation basketball must never take precedent over travel basketball and subject to consequences

5. Coaches & players should familiarize yourself with any IAABO rule changes.

6. Please keep in mind that at the youth level, there will be many new officials that will make mistakes just like our players and coaches.

7. Parents please be aware of our league timeline right from the start.

8. We feel we have one of the best youth travel leagues in New England and we ask you to help us maintain this reputation.

October MVBL News

Hello Friends of the Merrimack Valley Youth Basketball League

 

    We are excited to report that our 2015-16 season is off to another great start. We are happy to continue to bring you another year of our Coaches Clinic on 11-7-15 from 8:30am to 1:00pm at the Wilmington High School headed up by Rick Gorman. Fantastic speakers have been scheduled for this event. Another players clinic is scheduled for 11-11-15 at Reading High School Field House and is being headed up by Carl Mcfadden of Reading. We had a large turnout last year and expect the same this year. Space is limited so register early.  Outstanding instructors have already been scheduled for this Clinic.

    Our Executive Board had met in September to kick off our new 2015-2016 season. We have also had our season kick-off meeting with all of our Town Coordinators. The MVBL E-BOD will be meeting in early January to review our start up and first half of the season, as well as to finalize the second half of the season and our annual playoffs culminating in Championship weekend.

    We continue to update our website with current information so please check back often. I want to thank Dave Ruffen from Salem for assisting with our Website needs as we look to transition to another Webmaster to take the reigns. If you have any interest, please contact us.

    To all of our 8th grade coaches please remember the mandatory nomination of one of your players for our annual 8th grade Sportsmanship award. This is a wonderful opportunity for one player in each 8th grade division to be honored for their career in the MVL. Our 8th grade coordinator, Andre Vega, will be collecting nominations and our Sportsmanship committee will select the winners in February. The winners will be honored at Championship Sunday.

    Please note, league games always take precedent over all other basketball games. We have worked closely with school teams to not have conflicts with school basketball but our games take precedent over all other games your child might be playing in (AAU, REC, YMCA, CHURCH LEAGUE ETC)

    We ask that our member towns support the tournaments that are being hosted by the towns in our league. Many of these tournaments aid the hosting towns to be able to manage their programs and we would like you to look at these tournaments first.

    Most importantly, it is mandatory that all of our players, parents, fans and coaches adhere to our league Sportsmanship statement along with the individual town policies and code of conducts.

 

Hope to see you at the gym this season,

 

Best Regards

 

Ken Miano
