Travel Coaching Selection Process
Since our travel program is an extension of our recreation league involvement in our recreation program either as a board member, League Director or Assistant League director is required unless approved by the board. Priority will be given to those involved in the recreation program. The PBG Starzz Travel Basketball will support boys & girls teams for players currently in grades 4th(boys only), 5th, 6th, 7th, 8th, 9th, 10th and 11th grade. At this time there will be no “B” teams.
The 2012 / 2013 Travel Basketball season will soon be upon us. Elementary school age and middle school age teams will have tryouts starting in mid December or January. In an effort to prepare for this, the PBG Travel Basketball committee is preparing to take applications for HEAD coaching positions. Assistant coach selection and approval will occur after the head coaches’ selections. Please note, holding a position as a head or assistant coach during the previous travel season will be taken into consideration during selection, but does not guarantee retention of the same position for the upcoming travel season. All returning coaches must resubmit an intent to coach. The schedule for this is as follows:
·Deadline for HEAD COACH applications (via email to firstname.lastname@example.org) by Sunday 11/20/12 answering the questions below:
· The PBG Travel Basketball commitee will select HEAD COACHES by Friday 12/9/12.
·Phone (home & cell)
·Occupation (travel or weekend commitments)
·PBG Coaching experience(all sports)
·PBG Recreational Basketball experience (coaching & directorships)
·Travel Basketball experience (PBG or otherwise)
·Other applicable basketball experience (player or coaching)
·Gender & Grade applying to coach
·Name, age, & grade of son or daughter that would be participating in the program
·Prior to applying, beware that a head coaching position is an enormous time commitment. Applicants whose occupation requires extensive weekday or weekend travel maybe better suited as an assistant coach.
