Coaches & Volunteers

We're looking for help

A Community Club

If you are interested in helping out with Seahaven Force Basketball Club, we would be delighted to hear from you.

Successful youth basketball clubs are built upon a foundation of committed parent/carer volunteers and qualified coaches, table officials and referees. If you feel you fit any of these roles please get in touch.

Child Protection: All coaches and volunteers who undertake a supervisory role will need to have a current and clear DBS (Disclosure and Barring Service), also known as an enhanced DBS (formerly CRB).
