Lincoln Youth Basketball
Updated date: Wednesday, September 30, 2015 4:00 PM

Attention Parents and Coaches:

This season Lincoln Youth Basketball will only be accepting a maximum of 4 player requests per team, before players are randomly assigned to teams.  How it works;  A coaches son or daughter completes a buddy form and then the assistant coaches son or daughter completes a buddy form (4 players).  Chain buddy forms will not be honored and as it states on or flyer, due to the large amount of participants we will NOT be able to accept any requests for specific coaches and player requests will ONLY be considered with a completed buddy form.  We have had a number of complaints about stacked teams and fairness in making teams.  So the best compromise that could be made was to limit the amount of players beginning on a team, prior to randomizing the rest of the roster.
