A Message from the President

2021-22 Fall/Winter season:

Dear East Marietta Basketball Families,

First, I want to thank all the commissioners and board members for successfully running both a winter and spring season under the difficult constraints and challenges of Covid-19. It was a monumental undertaking, but we made it work.

As we look forward to the upcoming season, there are many open questions regarding Covid-19, gym access and fans. It is our hope to return to “normal” in our many gyms and have fans in the stands. That said, the schools have NOT committed to gym time yet and fans will be at the discretion of our gym landlords (Cobb Schools and Cobb Parks and Rec). I will update all of you as the picture becomes clearer. We are publishing our planned schedule, subject to adjustment and changes as necessary.

As for parents and players, let’s plan for the worst and hope for the best. What I know is that we will continue to broadcast all games on YouTube this season. Tryouts will be covered on YouTube with only players and coaches in the gyms. Mask rules will be communicated as we get closer to the tryout dates.

Best case for this season is a return to our traditional timelines regarding tryouts, practices, and games. This best-case scenario will have fans in the stands. And, game timing will return to stop clock format.

HOWEVER, we are prepared for alternates should gym access be restricted like last year. You should prepare for the possibility that we have limited gyms and limited or no fans. If you are not comfortable with this uncertainty, then wait to sign up until we know more.

We will update you as our plans and limitations for the coming season become known.

Please stay safe, get vaccinated, wear your mask in public, and together we can end this pandemic.

Clark Humble, President, East Marietta Basketball

 

Additional General Specifics about EMB Registration and Season

In order to keep up our level of success, we still need more VOLUNTEERS to COACH as well as ADMINISTRATE.  Feel free to step up and be part of our next great season!! We also graciously welcome any funds through sponsorship support and continually rely on your charitable contributions to our Joyce Fox Scholarship Fund. Please check the box while registering to contribute in order to help those that cannot afford to play.

Our fees go to gym rentals, referees, uniforms, trophies, basketballs, and operating expenses. We have exceeded our capacity for the past 7 years and had to turn away over 100 players annually, so SIGN UP EARLY to get a spot to play.

TRYOUTS/EVALS are conducted for coaches to judge each players' abilities and thus equalize the teams. All teams in EMBL are drafted with PARITY as the ultimate goal.

D1 & D2 EXPLAINED:
As in years past, we have 2 different skill levels (Division 1 and Division 2) for ALL the BOYS groups (10U, 12U, 14U, and 18U.) Division 1 is generally comprised of the more skilled boys (TOP 20%) in the age group as they are older, bigger, stronger and faster. Both divisions are equally competitive.

REGISTRATION:
Please go to the online registration section and follow instructions to complete the registration process. A CREDIT CARD is required for payment. Please contact the COMMISSIONER of your age group with any questions.  Registration is a two part process (registering your son or daughter on the EMB website, AND selecting a Tryout slot on SignUp Genius).   Appointments for tryouts are REQUIRED.   You select the day and session you’d like your child to attend tryouts!  The link for Tryout Signup will be in your confirmation email after you pay and register.  If you do not see this email in your Inbox, be sure and check your Spam folder. 

REFUND POLICY:
Refunds will only be given if EMBL is notified PRIOR to our DRAFTS (forming of the teams). There will be a charge of $3.00 withheld from the refund for a processing fee.

Here at East Marietta, our LEAGUE Objective is to foster KEEN, but FAIR competition, while building character within the boys and girls. Together with YOUR HELP, we are dedicated to maintaining the standard of quality that has been established over the past 52 years!
