VACANT ROLES AT WALLAN BASKETBALL

Wallan Basketball Incorporated (WBI) operates predominantly as a volunteer organisation.  This helps to reduce the costs to run the association and we are able to keep fees as low as possible.

Without the required number of volunteers, it places an increased pressure on the remaining volunteers, it jeopardises the operation of programs and hampers the introduction of specialised or additional programs that would be of great benefit to players, coaches, referees and officials alike.

Below, you can find a range of roles that Wallan Basketball are currently looking to fill.  Some are voluntary and some are paid roles.  If you have an interest in any of these roles, please speak to someone at the stadium in a teal polo, or email wallanbasketball@gmail.com.
