WHAT IS A DIVISION REPRESENTATIVE?
recommends there be a division representative (Division Rep) for every
division in the League. The Division Rep may be elected by the teams in
his/her division or be appointed by the League Operator. He/she is a
person of integrity and is consistently active in the League. The
Division Rep is a member in good standing and enjoys the involvement
that the position offers. He/she helps make sure that bulletins,
flyers and other League information gets distributed to, and is
understood by, the team captains in their division. He/she helps the
League improve by passing information between players and the League
Office. He/she may also assist the League with the Local Team
Championships and special events.
The Division Rep
may serve on the board of governors. He/she is knowledgeable
concerning League affairs and may be consulted by other members of the
League and the League Operator. Consulted is the key word here because the Division Rep does not
have the authority to make rulings as an individual. He/she merely is
an information source that is close to the players in the division that
he/she represents. The Division Rep may help grow the League by passing
on info about the League to locations and non-League members in his/her
area while playing on League Night.
IN GENERAL A DIVISION REP'S DUTIES INCLUDE:
· Emphasizing the importance of league office materials in the team envelopes – being shown or communicated to the team members
· Helping get all the teams to register for the next session during registration time
to grow the division during this time as well. Each division rep has a
goal to grow their division by at least 1 new team each session!
· Maintaining a good image
· Educating and helping new teams in their division get established and comfortable and learn the scoring
· Communicating to the league office, to captains and players, and host locations within their division
their division captains and players on the rules and the bylaws. Make
sure they know what is and what is not a defensive shot, what is and
isn’t a legal jump shot, how to properly address a possible bad hit or
double hit, and that positioning the cue ball in a ball in hand
situation with the cue stick is not a foul.
· Understanding that the reason to play in the APA is to have fun!!
