If anyone is interested in starting an AAU team for the middle schools (Voyager and Explorer) that feed Mariner HS please contact Mariner HS and leave a message for Coach Gibb
Coach Gibb Sportsmanship nomination
Feb 6, 2018 10:25 AM
Congrats Coach Gibb, for the sportsmanship nomination. This is from Snohomish County Basketball Officials Association.
“Corey has his girls playing hard on both ends of the floor. The improvement in his team over the course of this season is dramatic. His players never question the officials and they all obviously enjoy playing for him. Officials know that players (and fans) emulate the head coach. The fans of Mariner and the players exhibit the same great sportsmanship that Corey displays. When Corey has a question about a call, he addresses the officials fairly and with respect. Corey is a great role model for high school basketball. ”
Hannah Hezekiah Sportsmanship nomination
Feb 6, 2018 10:26 AM
Congrats! Hannah Hezekiah on your sportsmanship award from Snohomish County Basketball Officials Association.
“Hannah has been a four-year starter at Mariner HS. During that time period, I have officiated her team probably a dozen times. I don’t remember a SINGLE incident when Hannah has said anything negative to a player, official or her coach. She is a very talented offensive player who puts out effort on both ends of the floor. She is a team player who does not force shots. She shares the ball with her teammates and encourages them. She is a quiet leader as team captain and seems very coachable. Players like Hannah make officiating very enjoyable.”

Mariner Girls Basketball 2017-2018
“Do not let what you cannot do interfere with what you can do.”
- Be on the floor stretched, ready to practice at the start time listed on you practice schedule. Anyone not on the floor by the starting time, see your coach. He will decide if you will be turning out that night.
- Stretching will be done on your own prior to the listed start time.
- If you require taping, report early!!! Taping is not an excuse to be late. You are strongly encouraged to get ankle braces.
- Report to practice each night wearing proper practice gear (shorts, and a t-shirt or reversible). Check with your coach if you forget your top at home. Jewelry is not to be worn during practice, or games.
- You are expected to be at every practice! If you are ill and wish to be excused from practice communicate to your coach before going home. If you are home ill, call the school and leave a message to be delivered to your coach notifying him of your absence. Unexcused absences can lead to suspension or expulsion from the team. (There are few situations that will be accepted as an excused absence; family emergency, religious responsibility, or academic emergency being three possible exceptions).
- Consult a coach on any injury!! Your physical wellbeing is of vital importance to your performance. We will work with the training staff on all injuries. Do not treat any injury on your own. Do not leave the floor because of an injury without your coach’s approval. Take care of your feet by wearing several pairs of socks and have any blister treated by the training staff. All ice bags must be returned to the training room following icing, the ice removed into the sink, and the plastic bag placed in the garbage.
- You will be asked to give 100% effort at every practice. Do not neglect the important foundation necessary for any athletic performance: proper diet, lots of water, and plenty of sleep.
- Maintain a positive attitude and interact with teammates in a positive manner.
- Stop all activities immediately upon hearing the whistle and look to your coach for instructions.
- Ask relevant questions during drills, but no casual talking. Pay attention to every detail.
- Every turnout is carefully planned and designed to teach fundamental skills, team tactics and the mental approach necessary to become the best player and the best team we can be. DO NOT waste this opportunity by not being mentally and physically prepared for practice or by lack of focus at practice. The team that can execute fundamentals under game pressure often wins games. Practice at game speed whenever applicable.
- To be successful, a team must work together to achieve its potential. Friction between team members will result in a loss of strength from pulling against our selves. Once you enter the locker room, personal feelings must be forgotten in favor of a disciplined team effort.
- Players and parents will be expected to participate in off-season activities involving the Mariner Girl’s Basketball Program, if not involved in another sport. Ex. Spring, summer, and fall leagues, tournaments, clinics, practices, weight training, fundraising and conditioning.
- Players will be assigned to sweeping and “toweling” the floor for all three o’clock practices.
- Players’ rides need to be ON TIME! Coaches are required to wait with players until they get picked up. Please make the appropriate accommodations. We will release players after practice as close to the scheduled end time as possible, rides should be waiting for us, not us waiting for the ride. The consequences for picking players up late are as follows:
1st late pickup; warning
2nd late pickup; one-quarter suspension
3rd late pickup; two-quarter suspension
4th late pickup; possible expulsion from team
- The coaches and team captains will bring the necessary leadership to create a disciplined team effort. Although you may not always agree with the coach’s decision, do not let this disagreement affect your play or that of you teammates. If you have a question concerning your position on the team, or a problem affecting your play, feel free to request a conference with your coach. A conference between the coach of that team, then the head coach and player must happen before any parent meeting will be granted.
17. Players and parents will be open to players’ role on the team, regardless of player court time, scoring opportunities, etc. The roles established by the coaches should be shared accurately (by players) to limit confusion, ill feelings or general discontent.

Please help make your players season a successful one, by reading and signing the above written guidelines.

Rules for Meetings
- If appropriate, talk with your daughter about your question. What is her perspective? Has she spoken with the coach? If not, why? Players must speak with coach first, before any parent meeting will be scheduled.
- Set up a meeting with the coach if you still have questions. This should be an informational meeting where you ask questions, listen, and have a discussion. But, emotions and language must remain professional. Remember that the coach makes decisions for the good of the team based on practice, ability, attitude, and chemistry.
For any of these meetings, there are five guidelines:
- Conversations must be in a professional manner with regard to both language and conduct.
- Everyone gets a chance to talk, but everyone must listen as well.
- Emotional control by all parties is imperative.
- Meetings must not occur on game days, but rather by appointment, at least 24 hours is advance, and after all parties involved have a chance to reflect on the situation.
- Basketball is an emotional game. DO NOT CONFRONT A COACH ON GAME DAY, OR AFTER A GAME.
