483125, what a stupid comment all round, especially re the camps, you need to look at who actually is
1 hosting the camp at their venue
2 who is the organising person and it's NOT BV it's usually one of the clubs who have someone available to do this months before.
3 most clubs get the same email requesting staff for these camps, if one club puts their hands up because it's part of their club policy for them to help then you can't blame BV just because others don't.
The Andrew bogurt camp run at msac was basically a tigers camp, didn't see many tigers players there, two rangers wnbl/SEABL women, 1 bendigo wnbl/SEABL player and 1 Kilsyth player , and know for a fact many more were asked but didn't make themselves available because they were either working or away or could t be bothered. I would say all camps would be the same.
As for BA funding it's all been used up by boomers, and then opals as they prepare for worlds, plus on Joyce's salary. Add to this this year they have had un17 worlds, plus wheelchair worlds, it's been a huge year for finances
But agree No camps for un19s all year and they have Oceania qualifiers in nov, bit stupid really as they need to win Oceania to get to un19 worlds
