agreed - developing areas up north - lot of young families now living that way with the next junior club kilometres away.

with the right folk at the helm - great opportunities exist.

re: Resurgance of Central Districts

I'm not convinced that this is a "re"surgance, more like an emergance. THe unique thing about the Lions has to be its massive area to recruit from, with rapidly growing population and its perceived links to schools and country associations out that way.

Player development is business in the US education system.

When district clubs typically introduce a player to basketball that player is worth around $600-$700 in revenue to the club per year.

However, if a clubs are linked to large private schools, when a player starts at that club and is immersed in the school environment, making friends, getting to know staff and seeing facilities first hand every day and as a result of this exposure, they transfer to the school, that player is worth a relatively significant amount to the school in school fees. There is little incentive for clubs to see player development like a business but there is for private schools who can use this to attract new students, enrich student life and generate a strong sporting atompsphere within the school environment. If it works in the USA why couldn't it work here.

Just need to make sure they don't overstep the psycho line some players/coaches border on...

Really,

One team to make finals by the looks of it in Div 1 and 2. No team in U10 Boys div 1 or U12 Girls div 1 and numerous teams bttom of there abouts.

Their bottom age 16s are good but they are mostly recruits from other clubs.

Say what you want about the alliance with Trinity, but until it actually shows some sort of results its all just pissing in the wind because not that many people will want to travel that far to go to school for basketball, when really you go to school for an education.

re: Resurgance of Central Districts

I don't rate Lions at all. There are too many deals going on and too much favoritism that is holding the club back. It's a joke that they bring in country kids for winter and stab the locals in the back. Until one certain member of the club pulls his head in and realizes the grass is not greener the other side of the fence, the better the club will be.

There is not reason why the club should be the strongest in the state, except for one man at the club.
