NCBC Thunder and the CMBA take a hard stand against unruly behavior by the parents and spectators at the games, practices, any event. This is a youth organization that promotes healthy competition in the girls and boys divisions. There will continue to be instances where game reports are filled out due to inappropriate behavior (some for positive behavior) demonstrated by spectators, coaches, players, refs, etc. Please send these in as we need the communication, accounts, and information in order to continue to improve the game for all.
NCBC Thunder reserves the right to suspend or ban spectators from the games, practices, events, etc for unacceptable behavior. If your actions are deemed serious enough, your child will no longer be able to participate in the NCBC Thunder basketball program.
These are children that we are dealing with and we are the adults. We must remember to set the example at all times.
If there are any incidents before, during, or after the game, you can fill out a game report on the www.cmba.ab.ca website. If you have had officials that have been lacking in knowledge of the game or afraid to blow the whistle, then you can also fill out an 'officials report' on the CMBA website. Likewise, if you've had officials that did a good job, you can also fill out an 'officials report'. The CMBA and officiating committee will look at all of these reports.
We do NOT play ball if we do NOT have access to our gyms, it is honestly that simple!
We must all RESPECTFULLY POLICE conduct in and around our gyms.
Do not go all Terminator on players, parents, siblings, etc... but do REMIND THEM of the basic rules outlined below. There are no excuses around not knowing these rules as CMBA shared this information with all Zones, who in turn have distributed the same message to our community of players. Also, if something disrespectful is happening CMBA has asked that you simply notify them through a game report and/or let the officials know as they will contact CMBA Officials Assignor along with CMBA Operations Manager and General Manager. Coaches, players, parents, guardians, fans.... we need to be in this together!
Help your players (and their siblings) out; have them bring some cards, drawing/colouring papers, or any small, quiet activity... or honestly hang out and be good fans by watching other games (same notes go for practices and all events).
