Preseason Checklist for Basketball Coaches


Everything you need to know on MaxPreps for the 2017 basketball season.

Most of these updates are done within your team’s coach admin. If you need help accessing your admin, follow our instructions here.

1Update Your Roster

From your coach admin account:

  • Click on Roster and select Athletes  
  • If your roster is posted - check to see if it came from Hudl - 
  • If your roster is not posted - click on  and begin adding your team

If your team uses Hudl, you’ll notice your team's roster may already be entered on MaxPreps. Review that all athletes transferred over correctly and if any corrections or deletions need to be made, please do so on Hudl. Changes to your Hudl roster will show on MaxPreps within 20 minutes.


2. Update Your Schedule

From your coach admin account:

  • Go to Calendar and select Games
  • If your schedule is posted - check to see if it came from Hudl - 
  • If your schedule is not posted - click on  and begin adding your schedule


3. Verify Your League & Division

During the off season, we do our best to track updated league and division alignments. To verify your league and division go to  and select either option.

If you make any corrections, please note each alignment will go through a 24 hour approval process through our Basketball Manager.


4. Download A Stat App

Finding a stat program can be stressful. We’ve partnered with 23 stat apps for basketball, including MaxStats, Hudl, and iScore. You can check out which of these stat apps you think will benefit you and your team. If you don’t wish to utilize a stat program you are able to enter in the stats manually


5Download the Teams app

If you were using MaxMessenger as a means of communication with your athletes, we have discontinued this feature, BUT don’t get discouraged. We have something even better launching soon. There’s so much you can do with the Teams app, including communication with not only your athletes but parents. The Teams app is free for all members of MaxPreps. If you’re not already a member hurry and register today! Below are some of the cool features within the app. Hurry and sign up to get notified.

  • Direct or group messaging to staff, athletes and parents
  • Engage in two-way conversations
  • Communicate with parents and athletes from the app
  • Send photos, videos or file attachments
  • See “received” and “seen” confirmations on your messages


6Have a Great Season! 

It's as simple as that. Once you have gone through this basic team checklist, you will be all set-up on MaxPreps. If you have any questions, don’t hesitate to reach out to our support team at any time.
