Volunteers Needed for 2018-2019 Season

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.  In some cases theses positions are filled and you will see the name of the volunteer, and with others there are OPEN positions and we are looking for great friends and parents within the community to fill these roles.  

If you are interested, please come to our next Board Meeting on Wednesday, July 11, 2018 at 6:30pm at South Campus, room 608.

Events Coordinator

The WBBA Events Coordinator primarily facilitates the parent volunteer committees for the Opening Tipoff Event at the beginning of the season (a dinner and brief introduction program for traveling basketball families) and the Final Buzzer (a short end-of-season closing program that features dessert and raffles, etc.)  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.  The Events Coordinator would also assist in connection with certain other events as needed.

Fundraising/Business Outreach Coordinator 

The Fundraising/Business Outreach Coordinator would develop and coordinate fundraising strategies outside of the WBBA’s primary sources of funding. (The primary sources of funds for the WBBA are player registration fees, varsity concession profits, tournament proceeds (net profit from team registration, gate admissions, and concessions at our boys and girls tournaments), and pull-tabs.) 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.  No significant information technology expertise required! Just a willingness to help the WBBA’s communications efforts and have fun with social media.  If easier, volunteers can split this responsibility among a couple of people, if desired.
