In 2008-2009, BJBL launched its D.O.G.S. character and citizenship program. Through educating the players on what D.O.G.S. stands for, BJBL hopes to promote not only good play and sportsmanship on the court, but also great kids off the court.
The league encourages all coaches and volunteers to incorporate the D.O.G.S. information into practices and games and reinforce the importance of demonstrating character and citizenship.
