Team Registration applications and payment are due
Friday, October 13th, 2017
The Program Directors meeting
at the New Castle Town Hall
starting at 7:00 PM
The Address is:
Town of New Castle Town Hall
200 S. Greeley Ave.
Chappaqua NY 10514
While the October 13th meeting is a mandatory Program Directors meeting, the Board wants all the coaches, veterans or new to the program, to know they are welcome to attend as well.
The meeting is taking on more significance than it has in the past and all programs in TCBL should send a representative.
There are operational issues, including rule changes that will be addressed, followed by a Q&A.
TCBL has shifted its emphasis from individual team registration to a program registration.
TCBL registration for the 2017 2018 season will start on Saturday, September 9th. Please note that TCBL is accepting a team registration as long as it is part of a youth basketball program, which consists of 4 or more teams that belong to the same town or school district program, any combination of boys or girls teams and complies with the TCBL team definition eligibility requirements.
The annual TCBL Kick Off meeting will be Friday, October 13th at the New Castle Town Hall. While TCBL has always had a Kick Off meeting, the venue has changed. It is a mandatory meeting for Program Directors and his/her respective designee, but coaches, especially those new to TCBL, are encouraged to attend as well.
With the growth in the league, from 16 to 175 teams, leadership has decided that due to changes with towns, programs, TCBL leadership, newer coaches, paid coaches and administrators, the “program director policy” was added. I think all of us will agree that for a variety of reasons, it is in everyone’s best interest to have knowledgeable, contemporary program directors working with TCBL leadership and visaversa.
On a separate note, Russ Hoffman and I will be co-commissioners of the girls division this year.
