Join us this Friday night for our Cancer Awareness Night!
Together, as a basketball community, we are raising awareness of the importance of Facing Our Risk of Cancer Empowered (FORCE). We will be joined by several local organizations who will help spread the awareness message.
During the game, we are also asking for donations of non-perishable items to be donated to the American Cancer Society Hope Lodge in Minneapolis and our local food shelf. The Hope Lodge Wish List items are below.
WISH LIST - AMERICAN CANCER SOCIETY HOPE LODGE AND LOCAL FOOD SHELF
With the ever-changing environment we now live in, the Lakeville South Boys Basketball Association continues to take important steps to ensure the highest level of safety within our programs and our community. One of these steps is the implementation of a standardized approach to background screening for our coaches and/or volunteers.
LSBBA is pleased to announce our partnership with the National Center for Safety Initiatives, through which we will engage in a comprehensive background screening program. By using NCSI’s Full Service product, a simple “Red Light/Green Light clearance report will be issued in accordance with the criteria chosen by the Lakeville South Boys Basketball Association.
This means that we will not receive detailed information on any applicant. We simply recieve notification of a Red Light/Green Light or pass/fail screening results. All other information is held in strictest confidence by NCSI.
Once the coaching selection process has been completed, all coaches will be asked to complete the screening registration. This is MANDATORY for all coaches and some volunteers.
Please click the Background Screening to the left for more information.
Thank you for your continued participation and your cooperation in this important process. Any questions regarding specific screening results should be directed to NCSI.
NEW: MN Concussion Law and Required Training
The Minnesota Legislature recently passed a "Concussion Law" which requires any municipality, business, school district or nonprofit organization that organizes a youth athletic activity and charges a fee to follow the statute's requirements, including implementing concussion training and education to improve player safety and establish safe return-to-play policies for athletes who sustain a concussion.
See the Concussion Training page at left for more information.
