Team Manager - Tips

The Manager of every basketball team within our club is an important and vital role to keep things running smoothly for the coach, players and parents.

Managers help to assist the coach to concentrate on coaching and training the players and keep parents and players well informed regarding the team and the basketball season competition.

Below are some 'tips' that we have put together to help making your job easier when managing your basketball team.

1. Notifying club contacts

When you have been appointed as team manager, send an email including your contact details to the Club Registrar and Venue Coordinator (see contact details below).

2. Training

On occasions where a venue is unavailable for training, the manager and/or coach will be notified by the Venue Coordinator.

If your team is unable to train for any particular reason, please notify the Venue Coordinator within 48 hours as the club will not be charged for venue within this timeframe.

When a long weekend occurs, there are no games, therefore, NO TRAINING the week before for teams

Example:  Training week - Sunday 30 September  – Thursday 4 October – Weekend Friday 5 – Sunday 7 October is a long weekend.
Therefore, the 30 Sep – 4 Oct - teams do not train.
If your team has a bye, they can still train that week.

3. Vikings Website    .

Our website address is and includes a vast array of information to help make your job easier. If you can't find the information that you are looking for, please notify the club and we will endeavour to source the required information and upload it for you accordingly.
