The behind the scene work that is going on to get the season up and running is very chaotic. Be assured that we are working hard to get the kids on the court and playing the game they love.
I know that the information that you have been getting is confusing and that we keep pushing things further out, but we do not want to take one step without knowing what the next step will be.
As of today, Sunday, November 5th, the online registration site is scheduled to be live on Tuesday, Nov. 7th. This is giving us a day to do nothing but work on getting some things finalized and hopefully that happens by Tuesday morning.

Once the schools close for winter break BLD will not answer any emails or phone calls. The schools will be closed so no practices can take place until they open again. Please do not text coaches or any BLD board member during the break.
We prefer that no practices take place over the break, but if coaches decide to have practice, please know that BLD will not be responsible for any accident that might happen. So, practice at your own risk.
We are GUESTS of BISD and as such we have rules that need to be adhered to.
NO ONE is to be on the stages in the gyms…ESPECIALLY at Regina Howell and Caldwood. The schools have made this request so we MUST keep kids off the stages.
Siblings need to stay off the gym floor during practices. ONLY PLAYERS AND COACHES need to be on the floor and ONLY PLAYERS AND COACHES need to be bouncing balls. Any extra kids on the floors create chaos for the coaches which makes it hard to practice. If at all possible, please do not bring siblings to practice. Repeated requests by coaches or player agents to parents to keep siblings off the floor will result in practices being closed…meaning parents and siblings will not be allowed in the gyms during practices.
If there is any school equipment (balls, floor mats, etc.) in the gyms, please do not allow anyone to play with or on this equipment.
Do not drag chairs across the gym floors as this scratches the floors.
Once your practice is over, please leave the gym as soon as possible so that the next teams can begin their practice. If coaches want to have a short meeting, this needs to be done off the playing area of the floor or outside. We have already had complaints of it being hard to practice because of parents hanging out on the court.
Do not bring food or drinks in the gyms.
Not adhering to any of these gym rules could get us banned from using BISD gyms so we depend on your cooperation.
If you have not heard from a coach concerning which team and when practices will be, please email email@example.com. Kim Adams does not have the team information and cannot answer any questions. All team notifications should have been made as of Sunday, December 11.
PARENTS……IF YOU HAVE NOT ALREADY DONE SO, PLEASE ASK TO JOIN THE FACEBOOK PAGE. There is a link on the righthand side of this website. ——>>
This is the quickest way to receive all information about practices, games and any schedule changes. If you email a question that is already answered on either/or/ both this website and the Facebook page, from this point forward your email will not be answered.
