Summer Basketball Information

Hello Basketball Families,

We hope everyone has safely made it through this crazy school.  A few reminders we wanted to send out:

1.  Wednesday Open Gyms - A quick update on our Wednesday night Open Gym at Sunrise.  It will be from 5:30pm - 7:30 pm for next years 3rd-8th graders.  If attendance picks up, we will go back to separating the young kids from the older kids.  We are also looking for volunteers for these sessions.  If you can volunteer please contact Steve Anderson - sjanders21@gmail.com.

2. 10,000 Shot Club Starts Today!!!  Here is the link for more information:  10,000 Shot Club. We know there were distribution issues last year due to COVID to those that finished this, we apologize for this and don't foresee that to be an issue this year.  Please have your daughter/son practice "good basketball shots" for this 10,000 shot challenge.  Practicing game shots with good form are so essential for continued development.

3.  Tryouts - Save the Dates September 18th & 19th.  Younger grades will start the day and older grades will follow.  If your child wishes to participate in traveling basketball they should attend tryouts so please save the date.

4.  Volunteers Needed - As with the open gym, we are looking for additional volunteers in many different capacities.  If you or someone you know is interested in volunteering please contact Steve Anderson - sjanders21@gmail.com.

Thank you all for your patience this past season, we look forward to getting back to more trainings, more gatherings and once again being proactive in teaching the game of basketball.

GO BEARS!


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!
