We are mid way through the Summer season and it is time to think about Winter 2014. Over the next few weeks we will be sending out invoices for the Winter season and as team submissions are due by April 11 we require notification of players intent. So please, if you are not playing notify the treasurer upon receipt of the invoice. Team manager's will be confirming player intentions as well.
Over the past few months of competition we, Ranges committee, have received several incident reports in relation to parental court side behavior. It is important to be an example to our children, we may not always agree with the ref, opposition coach or player's but Ranges expect our parents, players and spectators to rise above any issue and focus on supporting the team on court in a positive and respectful manner.
It is good to remember that the bench area is solely for the use of players, coach & team manager. Only the coach can stand and give team direction.
Similarly there has been instances of score dispute, the official score is taken only from the electronic score box so if you are manning the courtside clock/board you are also responsible to ensure the opposition scorer is registering the correct details of the game. It is a sad reflection of some teams that revert to unsportsmanlike behaviors when scoring.
A reminder that during our summer season, the "Extreme Heat" Policy will be in forced. To all team managers and coaches. Please call Carey on 0417 398 834 as soon as you are aware of any issues that may lead to your team not attending their game, such as majority of members enacting their fireplan etc. Carey needs to inform Knox appropriately, as the secrectary.
Don't assume that the game will be called off due to the
forecasted temperatures, most games are decided, game by game. For more information on the Extreme Heat Policy & the "weather call" number, please see Policies under the 'Home' link.

The job can be a shared one, but it is important that as age group coordinators you look at the players and form the best suited teams based on: 1st skill 2nd friendships. Watching games and or training sessions and to be aware that not all players want to play at the 'elite' level and domestic basketball is geared towards fun and fitness before win at all cost!
If interested please contact a committee member as soon as possible.
Coaches and Team Managers, if your team is losing by 20+ points most weeks and skill factor in comparison to other teams in the same grade is an issue. Then You need to inform Carey no later than round 7, in order for your team to be considered to change grade levels.
A reminder for Team Managers- all player's personal details that have changed should have already been past on to Carey, our Secretary; so that the club has current correct information. ( for example- child's jersey number, parent's contact..)
