Coach Evaluations

Below is the link for Coaches evaluations, we strongly urge everyone to fill this out  as we go through these thoroughly and then meet with our coaches to discuss. 
 

Pause Basketball Activities

The White Bear Basketball Association would like to send our best to the entire association during these difficult times.  Although it is undesirable, in an effort to do our part we are requesting all teams that are still planning to have team parties cancel/postpone those team parties until other guidance is given by the CDC and MN Department of Health.  We hope you all stay safe and healthy.

In the meantime we do ask that you go to fill out coaches evaluation (see above) and encourage your children to spend some time in garages/driveways working on their ball handling.  

Additionally, a reminder to any spring teams that were planning/hoping to practice in district gyms that they will be closed until further notice.

Thank you!!

Mike Greenbaum

President


Volunteers Needed

WBBA Volunteer Positions and Descriptions

There are several non-elected positions that support the operational aspects of the White Bear Basketball Association Board of Directors.  Below you will find the title and a brief description of responsibilities.  We are looking for great friends and parents within the community to fill these roles.  

Events Coordinator

The WBBA Events Coordinator primarily facilitates the parent volunteer committees for the Opening Tipoff Event at the beginning of the season and the Final Buzzer.  The WBBA generally solicits volunteer parents from the 7th and 8th grades to help with serving food, managing raffles, decorating the gym, etc.  The Events Coordinator(s) primarily solicits this team of volunteers and works with WBBA board members and the volunteer committees in connection with these events. 

Fundraising/Business Outreach Coordinator 

The Fundraising/Business Outreach Coordinator would develop and coordinate fundraising strategies outside of the WBBA’s primary sources of funding. This position offers volunteers the opportunity to think creatively about soliciting funds from local businesses through donations, partnerships, event sponsorships, web banner ads, etc.

Concessions Coordinators

While the concessions tables at varsity games and WBBA traveling tournaments are staffed by volunteers through a process largely managed by the Boys and Girls Program Directors, the WBBA needs one or more individuals to assist with tracking and purchasing inventory and managing the concession storage and “storefront” location at South Campus throughout the season.  Responsibilities include ensuring that adequate food and beverage inventory is on hand for high school games and the traveling tournaments, arranging for the proper closing and securing of the South Campus storage location after varsity games, and generally helping to make sure that the concessions equipment, etc. is in working order.  This position lends itself to a small group who might be able to divide tasks efficiently.

Social Media Coordinator 

In addition to the White Bear Basketball Association website, the WBBA maintains a Facebook page and Twitter account.  The Social Media Coordinator is responsible for updating the WBBA’s Facebook and Twitter accounts to post news and events.  Often, this will involve close coordination with the Webmaster to ensure that basic news postings, event reminders, etc. relating to WBBA activities are posted to the Association’s social media accounts as more and more member families get their news from Facebook and Twitter. 

Go Bears!
