2019 Season

FCYB was created to bring the Firelands community together during the long winter months and to provide the opportunity for boys and girls in grades 1 thru 6 to learn and have fun playing the game of basketball.  Although we have a very good working relationship with the Firelands school system, this league is not run through the school system.  We ask that you do not contact the school for information about this league.  

We do have liability Insurance so if any player is injured please let the coach know if a Dr. visit is necessary.  Also please remember we MUST follow the New Ohio Law, if a player gets a head injury they must get a release from a DR to return to games or practices. 

 

 Information:
    1.    Your best source of information is to complete the e-mail address at the top of your child’s sign up form. You will be added to an e-mailing list, and you will receive important updates on clinics, practices, games, etc.  You will NOT receive a phone call about clinics.
    2.    All league information, as well as practice and game schedules will be posted on our website at 
www.leaguelineup.com/fcyb
    3.    Follow us on Facebook Search for Firelands Community Youth Basketball and click on “Like” 
you will get a lot of useful info here.
    4. Email questions to: colleenpete.fcyb@gmail.com


Lindsay's Law

  Every parent and coach must read this information and sign a form before their child can participate in a clinic, practice or game. 

I will have forms at the clinic but if you want to save time you can print one up and have it ready. 

Lindsay’s Law: Sudden Cardiac Arrest in Youth Athletes

What is Sudden Cardiac Arrest?

A Sudden Cardiac Arrest (SCA) occurs when the heart suddenly and unexpectedly stops beating, cutting off blood flow to the brain and other vital organs.  Sudden cardiac arrest is fatal if not treated immediately, most often by a defibrillator.

Who is Lindsay?

Senate Bill 252 is named for national heart health advocate and former Miss Ohio Lindsay Davis who suffers from a heart condition and has since dedicated her career to raising awareness of this potentially fatal condition.

"Sudden cardiac arrest is the number one killer of student athletes," said Davis. "At any moment I could have died because coaches and teachers had no idea this was even a possibility for someone who looked as healthy as I did at that age."

Lindsay’s Law

Lindsay’s Law, Ohio Revised Code 3313.5310, 3707.58 and 3707.59 went into effect in 2017.

In accordance with this law, the Ohio Department of Health, the Ohio Department of Education, the Ohio High School Athletic Association, the Ohio Chapter of the American College of Cardiology and other stakeholders jointly developed guidelines and other relevant materials to inform and educate students and youth athletes participating in or desiring to participate in an athletic activity, their parents, and their coaches about the nature and warning signs of sudden cardiac arrest.

The following resources were developed to implement Lindsay’s Law:

General League Information

Fireland Community Youth Basketball is a community based basketball program in the Firelands School District. The league has been in existence for 25 years. There have been some basic changes over the years, but for the most part, the league has seen great success by sticking to some very strong core values. These include, fair play regardless of ability, placing an emphasis on the children having fun and teaching the game of basketball in a positive environment where the kids can learn some pretty important life skills.
Our games are played at South Amherst Middle School on Saturday's. We will begin group practices around the first week in December, break up into teams near the end of December and begin our games the second week back from Christmas break.
There will be no week night practices before we go on Christmas break, but each team will have 1 weeknight practice every week after we come back from our holiday vacation.
Games will be played every Saturday up until the first of March and then we have a playoff for 3rd grade through 6th grade teams.
We are looking to increase team counts for 3rd and 4th grade girls, 5th and 6th grade girls, as well as 5th and 6th grade boys. We are going to allow individuals outside of the community to sign up as long as they fit into these divisions. See below with regards to our goals within each division.
We will be pushing to accelerate sign ups this year so we can get teams assembled prior to the break and get some practice time in before games start. Please don't wait to sign your child up.

The 1st &  2nd grade program will start with the Little Dribblers Program Jan.5 at 9:30 at SAMS.

FCYB Policy on District Residency

Since FCYB began, the written rule was that you had to live within the Firelands School District to play community basketball.
Starting back in 2008, we allowed some children to come into the league that were from outside of the district. This was done so to fill a need within our program as well as provide interested children with a place to play basketball. It is not the intent or desire of this program to take in children from outside of the community in large numbers. We allow this to gain players in certain divisions, which enables us to keep our numbers up and makes it more fun for everyone involved.
Understanding that this process needs to be a little more clear, we will outline what this means below.
1. Sign ups are for individual players only. We will allow no teams from outside of the district to come into this league as a team. We will allow a maximum of 2 players to "come together" as we recognize there could be a need for ride share, etc. There will be no exceptions.
2. At this time, we are not accepting any players from outside of the district for our 1st and 2nd grade program.
3. We will accept players from outside of the district for 5th & 6th grade boys and girls and 3rd and 4th grade girls.
4. FCYB reserves the right to modify these caps base on our sign ups from within the community.
5. FCYB will not discriminate based on gender, race, or ability.
6. Sign ups from outside of the community are on a first come first serve basis.
7. FCYB reserves the right to modify this policy as it relates to being in the best interest of the program, as well as the children that it serves.
