What are Dibs?

Dibs are volunteer hours that are served by a players parent/guardian or any child in 7th grade or older. For safety reasons, siblings younger than 7th grade may not accompany the parent while working the volunteer hours. Dibs are completed at our Girls Basketball tournament in November, by coaching a team, or other opportunities laid out by the board.

Can I just pay the $250 in Dibs fees instead of completing Dib hours?

Yes, you need to pay the $250 Dibs fee at the beginning of the season. We will need to pay someone to work at the tournament or coach a team. If you would rather pay the $250 instead of serving the Dibs hours, please email buffalogirlshoops@gmail.com

What happens if a parent/guardian is unavailable to complete Dibs hours?

Another adult or child in 7th grade or older can serve the Dibs hours on behalf of the family.
