Volunteer Coaches, Assistant Coaches

1) Naismith Basketball could not operate without our wonderful volunteers. Everyone working with and for this Organization is a Volunteer, and we know that without them, getting back to the sport we love couldn’t happen! If you are interested in volunteering your time as a coach, assistant coach or a team manager, please contact our coach liaison with your interest. 

2) Head Coach and Assistant Coach will receive one free player registration each and will be reimbursed once teams are sorted. If there are two assistant coaches, they will each receive a 50% refund. If you do not receive your reimbursement by end of October, please email the registrar/treasurer: naismithregistrar@gmail.com 

3) Naismith Basketball requires ALL coaches, assistant coaches, trainers and managers working with our youth teams to submit a current Vulnerable Sector Police Check each year before practices begin.  A completed police check will be required before equipment and uniforms can be distributed to coaches.   For your personalized letter that is required to accompany the form below, please contact Naismith Secretary for your personalized letter.  Link for the https://www.opp.ca/index.php?id=147&lng=en

5) Rowans Law

On January 1, 2022, Rowan’s Law - Concussion Safety (Phase 2) will come into effect in the province of Ontario. Phase 2 requires all sport organizations to establish removal-from-sport and return-to-sport protocols for concussion management.

Ontario Basketball’s Concussion Policy, approved and published in July 2019, already outlines these protocols. Additionally, in light of the January 1, 2022 deadline, OBA has recently polished the removal-from-sport and return-to-sport processes and documentation required in this section of the policy. We would like to draw your attention to the newly added resources below, which are also linked at the end of the Concussion Policy online:

  1. Suspected Concussion Report Form
    2. Medical Assessment Letter (template)
    3. Medical Clearance Letter (template)
    4. OBA Concussion Reporting Portal - Smartsheet
    5. Removal from Basketball Protocol
    6. Return to Basketball Protocol

6) Naismith pays for tournaments for our teams during the year.  Here is what is covered:

House/Recreation - 1 Tournament & year end championship tournament

Competitive- 3 Tournaments & EOBA year end tournament OR 2 Tournaments, EOBA year end and Ontario Cup

**Please remit an expense report and copy of the receipt to the Naismith Registrar for reimbursement.  To receive reimbursement for an entry, please complete the expense report and return as instructed.
