The Hoopsfix Foundation has launch an official Discord server, an online community for people working in off-court roles to help grow British basketball.
Ranging from club owners, to staff, to business owners, event organisers, content creators and coders, the community that is already approaching 50 members communicates daily, sharing lessons learned, asking questions and networking to help strengthen the game.
“I think this will fast become one of the most valuable online spaces in British basketball,” Hoopsfix Foundation Executive Director Sam Neter commented.
“There is a wealth of experience in our game that goes completely untapped, and hopefully by providing a centralised location for people to connect it will mean we can all learn from each other and get better to help grow the game.”
Already in its short existence it has connected various people, helped members get media accreditation to numerous events, aided setting up basketball clubs, shared countless sources of funding and discussed different routes to gaining sponsorship.
The server is open to anyone who wants to help grow the basketball economy in the UK, whether they are currently already working within the sport or aspire to be.
If you are interested in joining, contact Sam Neter on [email protected] with a bit about yourself and why you think the server will be of value to you.
