BOARD OF DIRECTORS
We are fortunate to have had many dedicated Board Members serve for more than a decade, and as their children have grown up and graduated, we are now seeking parents of younger children to transition into key positions that will guide our League forward to serve the next generation. 

REFEREES
Each Season, Student Referees (Grades 9-12) are hired to officiate Games in the 3/4 and 5/6 Intramurals Divisions. We also hire experienced Adult Referees 18+ to Officiate Games in the 7/8 Divisions. (Certified Referees handle 9-12.) Important Information:
• Eligibility: Student and Adult applicants must live in South Huntington School District
• Compensation: Fees vary according to level of experience and Division.
• Student Assignments: Greater consideration will be given to Referees who play/have played in our Program for at least the past 2 years.
• Clinics: Referees are required to attend Clinics to review League Rules, which vary slightly by Division, and to learn the etiquette required to effectively and appropriately referee children. Clinics are held during the fall; attendance is mandatory.
If interested in applying, click below to send an  email to Basketball Referee Inquiry.

Division Coordinators serve important administrative functions: setting up fair teams, distributing schedules and League paperwork to coaches; keeping track of scores; periodically monitoring games to observe sportsmanship between teams and coaches, as well as proper hall monitoring and respect of gyms/school property; notifying coaches of weather cancellations and schedule changes; and handling coach and parent issues that arise throughout the Season.

Coaching Intramurals & Travel Teams
Coaches must be 21 or older and agree to a background check for compliance. 
Intramurals Coach/Assistant Coach:  
Enjoy Coaching your child's team this year! You do not need to be an expert to coach... we have Coaching Clinics and a Handbook for Coaches to differentiate certain rules by Division. Mostly, we rely on Coaches to:
• be fair to their players and to their opponents;
• teach players good sportsmanship;
• teach age-appropriate drills and skills;
• encourage players to work as a team;
• and to inspire players to do their best.
Travel Coach/Assistant Coach:
For advanced players in Grades 5, 6 and 7, we offer Students an opportunity to play in the more competitive Travel Program. Experienced Travel Coaches and Assistant Coaches are needed for each Travel Team. If you would like to Coach a Travel Team, please  contact the travel coordinator.

WHERE WE PLAY

Remember, use of these gyms is a privilege, so please abide by the Code of Conduct at all times!
