Our Behavior in the NH Schools

January 13, 2016

Parents,

It has been brought to my attention that some children while attending our Rec basketball games or waiting to play their games are not behaving in an appropriate manner. I can not be at every game, every night in 2 gyms.  We are volunteers just as the coaches are.  We cannot police what is going on.  We are guests in the schools and must act accordingly or we may lose the use of the gyms at High Mountain and Memorial Schools.  The North Haledon Recreation Commission and the NH Board of Education are separate entities trying to help each other give our children a chance to enjoy the sport of basketball. 

These are the guidelines that must be followed while you and your child or any other child are attending a basketball game in a North Haledon school.   

1) STAY IN THE GYM. DO NOT ROAM THE HALLWAYS

 

2) IN MEMORIAL SCHOOL - STAY OFF THE STAGE

 

3) DO NOT BRING ANY BASKETBALLS INTO THE GYM. THE COACHES THAT HAVE GAMES WILL HAVE BASKETBALLS.

 

4) NO BASKETBALLS ARE TO BOUNCED IN ANY OF THE HALLS.

 

5) STAY OFF THE  PULL UP BARS IN BOTH GYMS. 

 

6) DO NOT GO ONTO THE COURT DURING A TIME OUT, HALF TIME, BETWEEN GAMES OR AFTER THE LAST GAME.  STAY OFF THE COURT.  AFTER THE LAST GAME, COACHES CLEAN UP AND EVERYONE ELSE GOES HOME.

 

7) AT MEMORIAL SCHOOL - NEVER ENTER OR EXIT THRU GYM DOORS INTO THE PARKING LOT, SALT AND WATER FROM OUTSIDE WILL DAMAGE THE GYM FLOOR

 

8) CHEER FOR YOUR TEAM.  KEEP ALL NEGATIVE COMMENTS TO YOURSELF

 

9) PLAYERS - TRY TO BRING WATER ONLY.  STAY AWAY FROM GATORADE AND OTHER SPORTS DRINKS.  WHEN YOU SPILL THEM THE FLOOR BECOMES STICKY. 

 

If anyone has any problem with any of these guidelines, please let me know.

 

Thank You, 

Joe Lozito 

 

 

 

Cheers not Jeers - UPDATED

Attention all Rec and Travel Fans & COACHES (this messages applies to the coaches as well):

After watching a few games this season I would like to remind ALL fans to remember why you are in the gym. We are there to cheer on our children as they learn how to be part of a team and that teams win games, not individuals. We need to encourage their achievements and downplay their mistakes.

Please refrain from negative comments in the stands for these two reasons:
1.) Yelling at a 10 year child in front of their friends in public has no positive effect.
2.) You never know who is sitting in the stands next to you.

Remember, these children are not paid professionals. They are our children trying to learn to play the game and more importantly to BE part of a TEAM, trying to accomplish their goal of winning a basketball game. They will make mistakes, we all do. However, if we use encouragement rather than negative comments, they will be able to learn from their mistakes, instead of fearing what they will hear if they do. EVERY child on that court WILL make a mistake. Let me repeat that - EVERY child on that court WILL make a mistake. The successful ones will learn from their mistakes. The ones afraid to make the mistake often give up on the game. Please don’t make our children afraid to make mistakes. As one very successful person put it – "A person who never made a mistake never tried anything new." - Albert Einstein

Thanks for listening,
Coach Scott Wozney
