Love Basketball? Love East Ridge? Love Kids? Get Involved!

ERAA Basketball Board Elections scheduled for May 24, 2017

With the NBA Playoffs in full swing and summer right around the corner, the ERAA Basketball program is shifting into its off season.  This particular off-season will be an exciting time of change for Raptor youth basketball as a few board members have come to the end of their terms, as well as the end of their times with children in the program.  With this in mind, there is a great opportunity for YOU to get involved!   Having just finished its 8th season in existence, ERAA Basketball is one of the best programs in the state!  With over 500 participants, unmatched facilities, and a tremendous partnership with both our Girls and Boys high school coaching staffs, this program is positioned to soar.  It just needs YOU, along with your time, energy, and great ideas, to pick up the torch and run with it!

Our basketball board has five (5) positions up for election this spring.  This is a fantastic opportunity for you to get involved with our program.  You can do this by nominating yourself or another individual for one of our board openings.  You can also support our program by attending our upcoming General Meeting and voting for a candidate of your choice.

The following positions need to be filled:

Director – Derek Sharrer will be stepping down after 5 years as Director

Treasurer – Todd Ellingson will be stepping down after 6 years as Treasurer

Boys Coordinator – Derek Simmons is currently in this position, but has been nominated as a candidate for Director

In House Coordinator – Brandon Walters is stepping down as In House coordinator but will remain on the board as Facilities Coordinator

Tournament Coordinator – Shannon Dorf is stepping down after 8 years as Tournament Coordinator

Note:  All positions have voting rights on our basketball board and have a two year term.

You can find descriptions and related time commitment for each specific role on our website:

If you have any interest in any of these roles, or if you have any questions please contact any of our board members or our Director, Derek Sharrer, at
