Meet with Parents
A parent’s meeting early on in the season is a good way to set yourself up for success. One piece of information to share with parents is Basketball Basics.
Parents and players need to be given a breakdown of the needs and expectations of you, as the coach, and the Association. Please read and be familiar with its contents.
Player/Team Contact Lists:
Once the teams have been decided a spreadsheet (in Excel 97 format) will be available to each coach. Select the appropriate list from the spreadsheet tabs. Or see the complete info from the overall list that is sorted according to teams.
All the practice and game schedules are tracked via Google calendar. See the link below for instructions on how to log in to the calendar and how to update the calendar. Note that it is the coaches responsibility to ensure that the game results are updated in the calendar as soon as possible after the game has finished.
Each team has a separate page listed under the “Teams” menu. Coaches for these teams can post to the team page via website administration. At the beginning of the season, please contact the web manager to receive an individual user ID and pass code for the website. Use this information to log in via: www.shootingstarbasketball.ca/wp-admin. From there, click the “+” button at the top of the page and select “post”. Enter your message and then at the bottom of the page, select the proper category. Click the “Publish” button to post to your team page.
