Have an Organizational Meeting

Make sure you get a group of individuals that are willing to work.  It is recommended that you have: President, Vice-President, Secretary, Treasurer, Media/Reporter

Establish By-Laws for your league

By-laws set out the guidelines for all aspects of your league.  Don't skip this step. Sample By-laws are available.  Email us and we will email you a sample.

By-Laws set guidelines for selecting Board members, recruiting coaches, when your season will begin and end, how you will register players, cost to participate, and how complaints will be handled.  It is worth taking your time to get this right.

Meet with your local school board or school superintendent

It is vital that your league have a good working relationship with your school district.  Most local leagues use the gyms at the local school district.  Most schools are more than willing to work with your league and allow you to use their facilities for a nominal fee or free.  Make sure you stress how your league will benefit the school.  All you have to do is look at the past State Champions on the UIL website to see how Little Dribblers' leagues benefit the overall basketball program for school districts.
