Freedom Irish Basketball Welcome!
Youth Philosophy Purpose The purpose of Freedom Irish Boys Basketball is to promote the secondary part of education. We feel extra curricular activities are important in developing a well rounded student. We hope to emphasize basketball as an integral part of the educational process. We promote high ideals of good citizenship, sportsmanship and teamwork. The program wants to have good students and good people as well as good basketball players.
Youth Philosophy Playing Time An attempt must be made to get all players fair, if not equal, playing time. We must keep our players interested in playing basketball. Allowing all kids to play and making the game enjoyable will hopefully keep more kids involved longer. One of the many reasons kids quit is because of lack of playing time.
Parent Conduct § § § Support Freedom Irish basketball. Cheer for all team members. Do not get into verbal wars with parents/players/coaches of opposing teams or the referees. § Enjoy your son’s games for what they are… games.
