Good afternoon all
We have a decent amount of new programs joining the BDL/BADL this season. For those new to the league we ask the following of you:
1--Please fill out this communication survey so we know who to contact as the season progresses.
2--whomever you put down as your main point of contact for the BDL/BADL is asked to be the liaison between your coaches and parents and us as administrators. Please direct all your parents and coaches to direct any league questions, etc directly to your community rep as we will only respond to emails directly from the designated community reps. We do this only to save us time. It is not possible for us to communicate directly with close to 2000 coaches in one season. If we receive any emails from your respective coaches or parents we will direct them back to you as in most cases you, as your community rep, will be able to answer most questions these individuals will have. Additionally, we support you as your program leaders, we will never get involved in youth parents and youth sports community politics, etc.
The only exception to this rule is if we have to postpone or cancel any games due to weather. In those situations we will email all community reps, varsity coaches, youth coaches and parent emails provided to us in the coaches registration and player consent forms to ensure multiple layers of communication is happening in real time on those days(hopefully never).
PLAYER CONSENT FORMS
As we build schedules and you are preparing for your seasons, it is that time to begin having your families fill out their players on-line consent forms. All players playing in the BDL/BADL for the 2019 season are required to complete a consent form. These forms will be what we use for your team rosters for the upcoming season. It is important that you direct your families to put the appropriate team name in when filling out the consent forms.
Again team names are your community and their coaches last name. Ex Fort Atkinson--Hintz
If you have an individual coaching in 2 grades then have them put their grade after the coaches name. Ex Fort Atkinson--Hintz Grade 7
If you have a player moving back and forth between teams in separate divisions they should put both coaches name separated by a slash. Ex Waunakee--Mackenzie/Selk Grade 7

COACHES REGISTRATION--2 items are required to be completed
All individuals coaching the Badger Developmental League is required to register as a coach. This is a yearly requirement.
If you have registered for the upcoming season starting in August of 2019 or later you do NOT need to register again.
Please use this link to register as a coach
The Badger Development League is requiring all coaches to complete the Child Safety Training through Trusted Coaches for the 2019 season. Again, this is a yearly requirement by the federal government for any individual involved in youth organizations and/or leagues.
This course is in compliance with the new SafeSport Act that was passed into law in February 2018.
ALL COACHES MUST COMPLETE THIS COURSE BEFORE THE BEGINNING OF THE SEASON!
The code will allow you to register free of charge and can ONLY BE USED ONCE! If you need access again after you’ve registered, please go to www.trustedcoaches.org and login.

Questions? Please contact Trusted Coaches at 608-210-1715 or email@example.com.
***If your program satisfies the SafeSport Act in a different way or uses Trusted Coaches as well there is NO need to do another one. In this situation the community rep MUST email me who has completed their training and through what means it was completed. A background check by itself does NOT satisfy the SafeSport Act legal requirements.
Thank you in advance for your attention to the above listed items.

CLICK THE APPROPRIATE LOGO BELOW TO DIRECT YOU TO YOUR LEAGUE INFORMATION.
The idea of the BDL and BADL came about after conversations a the state tournament regarding how youth programs/leagues/tournament, etc were set up in each community. The goal of the league is to have the best possible format to develop our youth, while reducing costs and travel for programs. Rules, schedules, format, and everything else with this league came together with the input of many high school and youth basketball coaches in our area.
