If you are interested in becoming a co-ordinator 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..)
