Give us a break Comp Committee !!

Youth League Div 1 out till round 13
Under 10's out till round 12
ALl other Div 1 and 2 till 10 ( 9 pre xmas and 1 after)

Give us a break and release the whole Summer Season please and let us work out what else we can do on the weekend rather than second guess what is going on in Basketball .

Surely it aint that hard to push a button......

presume you have a game around the usual times if even amount of teams in your comp.

if we hopefully one day end up with pro/rel over summer in all grades - they will only be released in 5 game blocks as the group will change - all the program could read would be 1 group c v 3 group c in advance, until the teams sort themselves out.

if it is that critical contact BSA - if you have already been to mt barker, starplex or morphet vale - chances are you wont need to go again

Consistency is all one asks for

Let us hope that for every person supporting pro/rel and North/South pooling we have two not supporting these ideas!!!

I'd suggest it would be closer to 5 or 6 not supporting pro/rel for every 1 that does.

The concepts of pro/rel and reigonalisation are both solid. The issue is management.

pro/rel would be best served at the bottom end of div 1 and in div 2. And if it were all the way through the competition we wouldnt see grades run diffently and thus confusion.

for reigonalisation, this should be the platform of moving to domestic comeptitions. If grade sizes increased at U12 and U14 level sufficiently to make these competitions larger, it would warrant reigonalisation in winter. And then you could have a tournament or GF play off for North v South.

Having summer reigonalisation means it doesn't even accurately grade teams during the grading season, and creates more byes and thus impacts across all grades.

Just poorly managed.

In who's opinion is the concept of regionalisation solid?? I can only think of one solid reason for it but I see many negatives. Unless more clubs are involved, yes clubs not teams from one club, kids and parents will eventually get tired of playing more regularly against teams from the same clubs. Does this mean more clubs like Magic in the mix? Will this dilute even further the talent spread across more clubs? Will this escalate the activities of some clubs to have parents within their club approaching parents from other clubs to bring their kids across?

In addition kids do not get a chance regularly to play and challenge themselves against teams from the other region. If we have one strong region and one weak region as is the case now does this impact the development of players?

At this stage there is way too many negatives for my liking. If this is the way forward then I see team numbers declining as parents wake up to the fact it is probably better for them to just play social basketball. Then what happens to the larger clubs which have a cost structure that demands high number of teams? Unless clubs start to run associations they will find their source of funds to run the club dry up!

jerry macguire said less is better

less teams better players, better refs

those that cant make div 1 2 or 3 play in an association comp run by clubs, once they develop into better players then they might get a chance to play district

interesting point here - was a few years ago - complaints were that you had to drive over town for a div 3-4-5 game and why couldn't they be regionalized.

so now we have regionalized brackets.

There is no clear answer on what is best here - but what keeps the participants (stakeholders) happy.

maybe a shorter season only playing other teams once ?

fact of the system is generally 2 teams move up and 2 down with pro/rel - so out of your 5 game phase you should play 2 new and 2 prior teams.

the most you would play one team is 3 times over summer.

some times I have played a team 4-5 times over winter - 2 x home and away games, 2 x state champs games, once or twice at norwood tourney and never had a big deal with that.

The issue here is the size of the competition.

BSA needs to get more kids playing in clubs.

If each of Sturt, Forestville, South and Southern in the South. And North, Norwood, Woodville and West in the North have 6 teams in an age group. Having 4 teams in district and 2 teams from each club in a reigonalised competition would be fine.

Problem is that BSA jumped the gun and have done it in a haphazzard manner.

Same for pro/rel.

We would be better getting a long term plan for pro/rel and reigonalisation. Then look at wat clubs and areas need help. Then having BSA assist to development in those area's. And giving clubs time to prepare and plan.
