Hoopstars Inc encourages parent participation. Our club needs many volunteers to function and there are many roles available including membership of the committee, age coordinating, coaching and team managing as well as assisting with events. The roles are as hard as you make them. We are always busy during the start of each season and this is when we require the most help. Support is given to team coaches through provision of coaching courses and the opportunity to have one on one sessions with an experienced coach. If you are interested in a role with the club or have a skill to offer please complete the volunteer registration form, and the committee member will get back to you.
All families are required to undertake scoring duties throughout the season, but this is the minimum commitment expected. Please do not leave this duty to the select few who continually fulfill this practice as these parents would like to sit on the side and cheer their child on uninterrupted as well. Each family is expected to perform scoring duty about two to three times a season and possibly a third or fourth time if your team makes the finals. This role involves, scoring the game with a parent from the other team either on the laptop or driving the scoreboard. Both appear daunting but in essence are picked up really easily with the support of other parents.
Players families are also expected to observe appropriate codes of conduct including:
- abiding by referee decisions at all times
- supporting our coaches
- refraining from instructing players during the game (this is the coach’s role).
