Dear Junior Domestic Members,
Welcome back to junior domestic basketball at Frankston & District Basketball Association.
We hope everyone had a safe Christmas break and a Happy New Years.
Over the last few weeks Frankston Stadium has had some significant enhancements completed. All courts now have new backboard and rings installed by Ringleader, the investment was $160,000 and considering the backboard and rings were in year 28 of a 30 year life span it was certainly time for an upgrade. All rings may now be adjusted for U8 competitions.
Courts 5 and 6 have also had the timber floors sanded down to raw, re-sealed and polished. New line-markings have been completed which now facilitates compliant entry side baseline and court 6 sideline/wall run-off. The score bench will be relocated to the wall on court 6. We also plan to have seating re-located to the wall.
We are currently investigating the possibility of water fountains as currently to fill up a water bottle is occurring next to the canteen which is adequate but not ideal.
You may of noticed we have developed a new website, with an association-wide approach. If you are unable to find any required information please email us on:firstname.lastname@example.org
The FDBA staff have this week undertaken a training session of the new PlayHQ competitions management system. All clubs should soon be trained up with the club training sessions scheduled for Sunday 2nd and Wednesday 5th February.
