"I think someone should explain to the child that it's ok to make mistakes.That's how we learn. When we compete, we make mistakes."- Kareem Abdul-Jabbar
Just a reminder to all . . . Lamprey River is a recreational basketball league. At all levels, there is a minimum play rule of at least one quarter. This is mandatory both during the regular season and during the playoffs.
Playing time should be closer to equal at the 3rd & 4th level. This is a developmental league – there is no benefit to winning or losing. The ONLY benefit is developing every single player on your team!
They don’t have fun when they realize that they only get to play when it’s “garbage” or “blow-out” time. To prove my point, all I have to do is point to a recent youth sports study that simply stated, “82 percent of the kids surveyed said that they would rather play and lose than sit on the bench and win.” Hear ye, hear ye! All kids want to play and if they don’t get to play, they are going to quit.
