This one goes out to the die-hard hoop fans. Those who want to take their game and their team to the next level. With the Wooter App and Wooter Apparel, you can now customize your own basketball experience and gear as you and your team get ready to step on the court for this season.

Finding A Court

From outdoor to indoor courts, selecting and securing a court is the jumping off point to get a successful basketball season underway. Unlike just hitting any park for a pick-up game or to shoot around with friends, taking time to plan the league in advance by finding potential courts to consider to host your league helps before nailing down your decision. Also, keep in mind that there could be existing leagues who have already booked courts near you, who may be looking to add teams to their league to boost competition.   

Finding Referees

Consider it done...the Wooter App allows you to book officials from all over the United States. The steps are easy to follow: request a referee, receive direct contact and detailed information with a referee on their skill level, and finally book your referees (Wooter works closely with referee organizations to ensure quality officiating at a reasonable price). 

Getting Sports Insurance

It's worth preventing some risk by inquiring about additional sports and recreation insurance to help avoid any accidents on the court. Companies often have a wide range of policies including accident insurance and general liability. Better to be safe than sorry.

Marketing And Promoting Your Team

This is where your creativity and putting out the right message takes over. Starting a basketball league by customizing your own app allows you to not only communicate with coaches, players, and share schedules and court details, but also to spread the word about the league prior to it getting underway and running throughout the season. With the help of social media and getting coaches and players to "buy-in" on marketing and promoting the basketball league is something everyone is anxious to get behind. 

Registration For Your Team

This is the part where people can get a bit overwhelmed – the deadline for player and team registration. But at Wooter, we've worked hard to ensure registration for your basketball league is easy to manage and is all at the touch of your fingers. The goal should be to keep it simple (team name, player name, contact information) as you manage players, manage teams, and manage schedules throughout the season. Having open registration through the Wooter App makes both sign-up and follow-up efficient and effective for your basketball league.
