Program Goals and Objectives
The goals and objectives of the Menomonee Falls Youth Basketball (MFYB) and Jr. Indian programs are to emphasize the fundamentals of team play, individual skills, good sportsmanship and fun. Above all, MFYB is about basketball instruction for young players who have a desire to learn and improve their game. Winning games will be a result of the work coaches and players put into practices and preparing for games. All MFYB teams like to win and often play very competitive games. We seek most of all to learn the game of basketball, win the games we can, and have fun playing the game as a team.
Parents and Volunteers
As with any youth sports program, a large part of our success is driven from volunteer participation. Every family is encouraged to participate in one or more of the following:
- The Team listed 1st on the schedule supplies an ADULT for the official scorer.
- The team listed 2nd on the schedule supplies an ADULT to operate the clock.
- Gym supervisors are needed to help set up and take down chairs, monitor weekend game activities, and help during March Madness at tournament time.
- Parents, please speak with the head coach first regarding player and team concerns.
- Coaches are encouraged to introduce players to all positions, but players are not required to play all positions in a game.
- There is a stoppage of play around the 4:00 in each quarter. At that time, substitutions are
- Coaches must pre-determine playing time for their team and exchange completed line up grids before each game (This does include overtime). Any questions regarding playing time for a game should be directed to the Gym Supervisor.
- No substitutions (other than for injuries), except at the 4 minute marks
- No player can play 2 periods more than anyone on the team. For example,
- One player can’t play 6 periods if another has only played 4 including the overtime period.
- Safety precautions dictate that players do not wear earrings, rings, necklaces, bracelets, watches or jewelry of any kind during warm-ups, practices, and games.
- A coach may not leave the bench to go out on the floor unless a referee summons him out to attend to an injured player. If a coach is summoned by a referee to leave the bench to attend to a player on the floor due to an injury or incident, the player must leave the game and cannot return until his/her next scheduled rotation. If a referee calls the coach on to the floor to attend to a player, the coach must do so. If the injury involved a blow to the head, the player will not be allowed to return to the game.
- Any coach, player, or spectator behaving in an inappropriate manner, including inappropriate language, will receive a warning from the referee and be reported the Site Supervisor. Only the 2 authorized coaches are allowed on the bench. Coaches’ shirts must be worn.
- A second warning results in an immediate ejection from the game and facility.
- A third warning during the season results in an immediate ejection from the game, ejection from the facility, and suspension from further league activities for the remainder of the year.
