NBA, USA Basketball announce first-ever youth basketball guidelines

The NBA and USA Basketball recently released youth basketball guidelines that really match the philosophy of Bainbridge Roots Basketball.  The guidelines...

--Advise athletes to delay single-sport specialization until at least 14 years old
--Include maximum and recommended participation guidelines
--Emphasize weekly rest minimums

Here are links to a summary article on the guidelines, and the detailed guidelines themselves.

Bainbridge Roots Basketball will be working to make sure our offerings are in line with these guidelines, and we strongly encourage families to read the articles, watch the videos below, and talk about them...with each other, with other families, and with us.
