Minneapolis & St Paul Basketball Coalition Explanation

 

Purpose:

  1. Help the cities of Minneapolis and St. Paul create a functioning infrastructure that would be similar to the suburban (and rural) youth sport associations that currently exist.
  2. Help bridge the gap between the cities of Minneapolis and St. Paul and the rest of the Minnesota basketball network.
  3. Give more kids in Minneapolis and St. Paul the opportunity to participate in an organized and creditable traveling basketball program.

 

Policy: 

Since the 2011-12 season, the MYAS will no longer recognize the existence of independent teams from Minneapolis or St. Paul for the regular winter basketball season.  The MYAS will only recognize and accept teams that are coordinated and sponsored by recognized coalition member organizations. 

 

Requirements:

  1. ALL coaches must complete the Trusted Coaches risk management platform, which includes a national background check, positive coach character development, concussion training and first-aid training.
  2. Must limit player participation to their respective city boundaries. Minneapolis Coalition members can only have players that live or go to school in Minneapolis. St Paul Coalition members can only have players that live or go to school in St Paul. Player transfer rules apply.
  3. Must have an established democratic posture (i.e., Board of Directors, Administrative Committee(s) or staff) that allows for the open exchange of ideas, concerns and suggestions.
  4. Must have a minimum of two teams and agree to promote a comprehensive basketball program. Specifically, Coalition member organizations must attempt to provide basketball experiences for A, B and C level basketball teams
  5. Must agree to an open try-out process and an open application process for coaching candidates.
  6. Must agree to abide by rules, regulations and policies established by the majority of the Coalition member organizations.
