Government grant for BA announced
Basketball Australia (BA) Chief Executive Officer Larry Sengstock has welcomed the announcement by Federal Sports Minister Kate Ellis of a $300,000 grant to assist in building a stronger future for the sport in Australia.
"This funding will enable BA to continue the on-going reform process, including the appointment of a General Manager for High Performance as recommended in the recent independent review process," said Sengstock.
"The Federal Government's increased support of basketball is a major vote of confidence in our long-term strategic plan," said Sengstock. "We've worked closer than ever before with the Minister and the Australian Sports Commission throughout this process, and we are extremely grateful for their support.And before anyone gets excited, that $300k isn't necessarily the salary for one person, it includes their salary, presumably as part of a few other things.
