Important notice for parents and guardians of Panthers players

Hello Panthers people


We have an important matter that we would like to bring to your attention.


Player safety is our utmost concern at the club. So that we can manage this, we ask that your children are supervised to and from the training venue each week, and that you make face to face contact with the Team Manager/Coach at the start and end of each training session.  This is to ensure that; a) training is on and your child safely arrives at the training venue, b) the coach/Team Manager know who is responsible for your child during training/pick up, c) your child is properly supervised and that we have up to date contact information for you in the unlikely case of an emergency, and d) the coach can liaise with you about basketball matters concerning your child.


We understand that you have busy lives and multiple drop offs and pick ups. The coach/Team Manager’s role is to ensure that training is conducted safely and in a protected environment, but it is not their responsibility to discipline, supervise and baby sit your child during training. Children who are not BMBA registered are not allowed to train with Panthers teams. Unregistered children are not covered by BMBA insurance and as such contact details are not readily available in the unlikely case of an accident. Coaches and Team Managers reserve the right to turn away children who are not BMBA registered and/or have not made prior arrangements with the club to train.


If your child suffers from a medical condition we ask that you remain at training at all times to ensure that they can be adequately assisted if required.


If your child is not behaving at training and the coach is having to spend a lot of time correcting your child’s behavior, then the coach reserves the right to request your presence at training to assist in correcting their behavior.


Our coaches and Team Managers are volunteers who give up their personal time to coach your children. Please assist them by following our requests above.


If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact us at


Yours in basketball
