The following is a list of responsibilities and instructions
Arrive at the courts for your session at least 10 minutes before it is to begin. Speak to the previous session Facilitator(s) if applicable and agree court allocation with other Facilitator (s) based on sign-ups.
TIP: Show up with a plan for your session as it will tend to run more smoothly when you do. For example, if you're running a round-robin, paddle stack, paddle box or if you're running a challenge court, know how you're going to do it. If you want to run rally scoring, be prepared to explain it.
During the event
Try to ensure that the play rules in place are being observed, such as etiquette rules and game format (i.e. winners stay and split, max 2 games).
If required, adjust play from 11 (win by two) to straight to 9.
Stop play if conditions become unsafe or if there is an accident*.
*The AED, first-aid kit and extra bottled water are in the bin at the courts.
*In case of an accident/injury, please fill out the Incident Form.
(You can find it from your CourtReserve dashboard under "How do I" -> "Report an incident")
*In case of an accident/injury, emergency contact first call emergency servcies and then notify a board member
Listen to and take a record of any instances of inappropriate behaviour. Try to not get personally involved in altercations.
If members would like to stay into the next session to continue playing or finish a game, they must sign up if there is space at least 15 mins before the end of the session.
After the event
Announce last serve approximately 10 min before the end of the session.
If members are staying into the next session, encourage them to sign up using CourtReserve for the next event if there is room prior to the next event starting. Please make an announcement during your session as well as at the end of the session, i.e. 15 minutes to the hour, to remind members to sign up if they are staying.
*Please note that members should make every effort to sign up if they are staying into the next session, however we will leave it up to the discretion of our facilitators whether to allow members to stay into the next session if they haven't signed up (in cases of technical difficulties, etc.). If we notice that this 'allowance' is being abused, we will more strictly enforce sign-up for all sessions.
Coordinate with the incoming facilitator if appropriate.
Place any items left behind in the storage box and send a picture/communication on Signal.

What do I get for being a facilitator?
The first bonus is you won't have sessions where you can't play because there isn't a facilitator.
The second bonus is that you get an extra Prime Time advanced booking each week.
