Jamba Announcements- Please Read
1) Upload a picture: Please log into your account here and upload a picture of your child. This will help the coaches learn names and properly evaluate the kids to make sure that teams are divided evenly.
2) Rain Policy: We have been getting much more rain this year than usual and we are hoping that it won't have a huge impact on the Jamba. Having said that, safety is extremely important to us and we will only play if the court is completely dry.
An email and text will be sent ONLY if we have made a cancelation. We will also post any cancelations to this link at least 4 hours before the start of your practice.
Makeup Policy: We hope for the first several weeks you can be flexible with makeup days. If your game is canceled, we will attempt to do do a makeup the same week on either Friday afternoon or Sunday afternoon. These are the times that the courts are available. Thank you in advance for your understanding.
3) Uniforms: Every player will be loaned a Jamba jersey. We ask that you take care and wash gently as these will need to be returned at the end of the league. It's very important that you show up the first day of practice to receive your jersey--even if you are busy that day please have someone swing by to collect the jersey.

- This is a fun league and while we want to teach the kids to win, it's more important that they enjoy the experience with new/old friends and continue to love the game of basketball
- It's not that serious. Kids will look lost sometimes, refs will miss some calls (or let some things go as the younger kids learn the game) and there will be some ups and downs. NOBODY will get a scholarship or make the WNBA/NBA over the next 10 weeks
- We ask that you be a supporter of your child and ultimately, all the children. Our job is to build them up, especially when they are down. Our kids don't try to miss shots, turn the ball over or lose the game. This will happen and please know that the kids are trying their best. Basketball is a very hard sport to learn and the best way to learn is through mistakes
- We ask that after the game on the ride home, ask your child about their experience and try to highlight all the things they did great. This is not the time to focus on mistakes or give them coaching advice. Once you get home and everything is settled, that may be a good time to give them some tips and advice
- We ask that you let our coaches coach and be a fan. We shouldn't have kids looking to their parents because their name is called or parents are coaching from the sidelines. Please refrain from talking to the refs and if you have any issues, please email us after the game and we will handle it the next day
- Everyone is trying their best. Let's all relax and enjoy the fact that our kids are healthy enough to play the greatest game on earth and do so in an uplifting and positive environment
