Interested in Becoming an SLP Basketball Board Member?
Have ever considered becoming a part of the Spring Lake Park Panther Basketball Board? NOW is the time to see what it is all about. The Spring Lake Park Panther Basketball club will have several open positions on the board for the upcoming 2019-20 season. The organization could not survive without the dedication and time commitment from the parent volunteer board members. If you are interested in learning more see some of the common questions below.
WHAT IS THE TIME COMMITMENT? Board members attend a monthly meeting, typically the first Sunday of the month, throughout the year in person. These meetings are where club decisions are made and members are updated on what is happening across the league. Board members are required to be available a minimum of three weekends per year to support Traveling Try Outs, Girls Travel Tournament and Boys Travel Tournament to help run all three events. Finally, additional time commitments depend upon the your specific role within the board.
