Boston Warriors expects that student-athletes participate in all practices and attend as many tournaments, games and scrimmages as possible, though there is no practice or tournament requirement. When a player is selected to the team and accepts the invitation for the Boston Warriors, he and his parent(s)/guardian(s) are responsible for the payment of all fees as a player of our club. All fees are expected in a timely manner as outlined at time of registration and are non-refundable.
The Boston Warriors Tryout fee is non-refundable.
The Team Membership Fee is paid in-full prior to the start of the practices. This fee covers uniforms, all practices, scrimmages, games and tournaments for the current season and administration expenses. The Team Membership Fee is non-refundable. There are NO exceptions; this includes, but is not limited to: school obligations, player illness/injury, or personal conflict. Families are responsible for all travel arrangements and expenses when applicable.
Parents & players have to realize playing time is NOT a right, it is a privilege. Unlike some programs, there is no guaranteed playing time on AAU teams for any player. That being said, every player will play in every game.
Coaches must weigh a number of factors for each and every game as to how much time each player will play in each game. Playing time will NOT just be given to players, playing time is earned in practice, during games and practice off the court on their own. If your son misses practices and/or games, he needs to make sure to check with coach to see what he has missed. Remember, basketball is both a mental and physical game.
Parents will NOT address coaches regarding playing time within 1 hour of the end of the game. If a parent breaks this policy, the player may be removed from the program.
Lastly, many times people forget that basketball is a team sport and to build continuity to make the team better (and almost always individuals better) players need to be at all activities (games, practices, scrimmages, etc.) to become a real team.
