COACH MEETING FAQs

Q: I tried to rearrange my schedule, but I just can’t make it. What happens?

A: Rosters for coaches will be accessible online. Please check your email or www.foothillhoops.org. All players will receive reminder emails for their first practice - but please also follow up with them as well to introduce yourself and remind them as well.

 

Q: Do I need to stay for the whole time? Can I pop in whenever?

A: The meetings are intended for you to stay from beginning to end. If you absolutely cannot stay for the duration - please do not arrive early as we will not be ready for you. You may of course leave if you need to, but we strongly recommend staying for the entire meeting.

 

Q: Are players required to attend?

A: Players are not required to attend the meeting. You may bring your player if you must, but we generally don't recommend that players attend since the meeting is generally geared towards Coaches

 

TEAM ASSIGNMENT & SCHEDULES FAQs

Q: When do I find out my player’s Team Assignment?

A: Team assignments will be published online and sent out via email over the weekend of 11/23-11/24

 

Q: How were the teams made?

A: Our neutral Foothill Hoops staff does all of the evaluating at the Player Assessment Day. We don’t have parent volunteers evaluate, nor do they draft the teams. Instead, our League Directors create the teams as evenly as possible based on the skills assessment. Height, size, skill, and age are all considered when we make the teams as evenly balanced as possible.

 

Q: Where can I find the Practice and Game Schedules?

A: Practice and Game Schedules are published in the Parents’ Packet, which is posted online (see below). Games and practices are also available in the App. Please always follow the Official Foothill Hoops schedules in the Parents’ Packet. Practices and games are never cancelled, even if your coach says so!

 

MORE QUESTIONS FAQs

Q: Do you still have room for new registrations?

A: Yes, we generally have room for new registrations if you know anyone who would like to register! Some divisions may have waiting lists, while others may have open spots. Registration can still be completed online on www.foothillhoops.org. If placed on a waiting list, you will receive an automatic email once a spot opens up.

 

Q: I’ve read through all the FAQs, looked through the website (www.FoothillHoops.org), but I still have questions. Who do I contact?

A: Feel free to email us at info@foothillhoops.org with any other questions you might have.
