It’s that time of year again, time for the Greenvale Basketball Club’s annual general meeting. As a club we have had another successful year, both on and off the court. We have introduced a number of new players, teams and parents to the game of basketball and we now have almost 50 teams that participate each week representing our club. That equates to approximately 400 children playing domestic basketball for Greenvale. Of course this doesn’t happen without the support of volunteers and in particular those that give up some of their time to be a part of our committee.
Over the past 5 years we have had the same group of people step forward and run our committee ensuring that all of our kids get onto the court each week. And although that same core group have done a fantastic job, it’s time to prepare for the future.
We are seeking individuals that care enough for the future of our fantastic club at Greenvale, to step forward, put your hand up and join the committee. It’s an exciting time to join… We have a brand new court just about to commence construction and have an opportunity to tap into one of the largest growth corridors in northern metropolitan Melbourne, all to get more kids on the court participating in the best game in the world.
On the evening of the AGM, we will also be holding a special general meeting to discuss and seek endorsement to transition our operating model to model rules that apply to all incorporated associations. This is expected to take no more than 15 minutes and will be scheduled to run before the AGM.
I look forward to seeing you all there on the night!
Monday 24 August 2015 – 7pm start
Greenvale Recreation Centre, Barrymore Road, Greenvale
Shane Gillard (President) on behalf of the 2014-15 Committee.
As has been stated on a number of occasions, the domestic clubs are the lifeline of any basketball association and our representative successes are largely due to the strength of the underpinning domestic competitions made up from these clubs.
As a way to say thank-you for everyone’s continued support, the Broadmeadows Basketball Association has invited all members of Greenvale Grizzlies domestic basketball club to attend this Sundays (July 19th) Big V Championship double header with both teams playing Sherbrooke (Women tip off 1pm, Men at 3pm).
All players, coaches & team managers wearing Greenvale club apparel will be admitted for free.
With both teams qualified for finals seats will fill up quickly, so please arrive early to ensure a seat.
It would be fantastic if each team could have a representative (or more) attend. Also, if you have the time, transferable skills and want to show your commitment to our club, please consider taking a role on the committee or encouraging and nominating someone you feel that can make a contribution.
