Basketball Volunteer 2019-2020 Season


We always need Coaches!   All coaches, new and returning, need to register here as a volunteer.  Be sure to indicate if you would like to be a Head Coach or Assistant, and who you would like to coach with if you know already.  Only one Assistant Coach is assigned to a roster prior to our drafts.

 

** ALL players will be placed in a draft for the 2019/20 basketball season regardless what team they played on last year **

Bedford County requires that all coaches attend a Coaches Certification Class every two years, for each sport.   Dates will posted on our website as soon as we are notified.

You will be notified prior to the drafts if you have been selected as a Head Coach.  Head Coaches must notify FYAA of the assistant coach prior to the draft for the child to be pre-assigned to the team. 

Per Bedford County policy, there will be a pedigree from year to year on assistant coaches.
  As long as an assigned child remains on the previous year's team, his or her parent will remain as the assigned assistant coach, whether or not they actually perform that duty.  Only when the assigned assistant's child leaves the team to re-enter the draft or move up to the next level will the Head Coach be able to have another assigned assistant coach.

For further clarification of the Bedford County Draft Policy, please see the tab at the top of our website.  Thanks.
