Parent Guidelines:

By Nejuan Thompson, 10/19/18, 11:30AM PDT




Our goal as parents and players is to represent the Southridge youth basketball program in a first class manner at all times.  We emphasize character, teamwork, discipline, respect and sportsmanship throughout the entire program.

Our parents play an instrumental part in our Southridge youth program.  It is our hope that parents will support all players and coaches.  We hope all parents will have a positive impact on our program with their support.

Parent Guidelines:

·       Arrive at practice and pick up after practice based on your teams practice time.  We expect players to arrive no more than 5 minutes before practice and no less than 5 minutes after practice concludes.

·       Communicate by e-mail/text/ through app to your coach if your son is going to miss a practice or contest.

·       During games please support all players with positive encouragement and be respectful of all game officials.  This includes scorekeeper, officials and coaches.

·       Playing time is based on several different criteria and will not be equal.  An effort will be made for all players to participate in each contest. 

Questions and Concerns: 

Please e-mail and ask for a meeting with your coach after or before practice.  Do not take up the issue after a game or practice.  If you have an issue after a game.  Please address it the next day to allow a cool down period. If issue is not resolved then contact Ne’Juan Thompson.
