Floor Wiping Crew Applications NBL Season 2019/2020

The South East Melbourne Phoenix have opened applications for suitably committed and experienced Floor Wipers to join our NBL Volunteers on match days as part of the “Heartland Crew”.

The Floor Wiping role is a highly sought-after volunteer opportunity. It provides aspiring young basketballers with a unique exposure experience by being “up close to the action” and learning “how the pro’s do it” through observation in a professional sports setting.

NBL Floor wipers get the opportunity to interact with professional level athletes and coaches pregame by acting as shooting & rebounding support, as well as playing a critical role in supporting the game night staff to ensure the playing surface is safe and free from moisture.

The South East Melbourne Phoenix are looking for 6 NBL Floor Wiping Crews of 6 volunteers each. Each Crew will need a Nominated Crew Contact (Adult over the age of 18) – who will be the main point of contact for all club & event correspondence.

They will need to have had experience floor wiping at NBL 1 of Big V level. They need to be committed and available

Each floor wiper must be

  • A minimum of 15 years of age
  • Committed to a minimum of two home games at Melbourne Arena between October & February 2020
  • Experience floor wiping at NBL1 of Big V Level (experience preferred)
  • Applications open to young male and female basketballers

 What we provide

  • Heartland Crew T-Shirt
  • Refreshments for Floor Wipers
