BSA Future Direction
For those who are in the know, or think they are in the know (everyone put their hands up), you would be well aware of the intention of BSA to rejig the governance of the sport in this state to a Victorian style approach.
At present, there is the Metro arm which is club based, Church, and then Country which is association based.
The participation rate in Metro areas is lower (per head) than in country and lower in this state than other states. The participation rates of the outer metro clubs (Mavs, Lions) is lower.
I think BSA is trying to build the sport and in doing so considering whether an Association based model would increase participation.
There have been comments from others in other threads saying that an association model would not work.
Let's discuss the pros and cons.....
