We'll be coming. At least 10 teams I’d say. Book refundable accommodation only and roll the dice. It’s one of the best weekends in the calendar. Just don’t stay at that holiday park that wouldn’t refund people last year.

at some stage tournaments will return (sooner than later if we can keep COVID under control) - I'd expect the first ones after the COVID break to be a bit undecided until the very last possible date allowable for travel plans , accommodation, registration etc - let's get through February....

We used to take many teams from our club in Melbourne over for years, but the last 5 years, all you played were Melbourne teams, so whats the point of driving all the way to Adelaide to play teams that at 20-30 minutes away?
Cost families $$$.
If SA teams supported the event and, as victorians, we got to play someone different it could be different.
For me, we will find some country victorian tournaments.

SA clubs don't support it because of the arrogant club that runs it. If other clubs ever get together (not the debacle Australia day tournament a few clubs tried to organise before they realised it can get really hot in January), then Adelaide can create an interstate tournament that isn't predominantly compromised of interstate teams.

Easter represents a great opportunity in the calendar to stage a junior tournament. Timing is good -staged just before AJC U18s, a couple of months before the NJC in Melbourne. Regional clubs in the ACT, southern NSW and north and western Victoria are just itching for competition. To me, it looks like the current Adelaide tournament represents a missed opportunity.

So - writing as an outsider who could not care two hoots about the relative merits of individual SA metro clubs in their interminable internecine rivalry - I offer this assessment.

We face a choice -
Option 1. If SA basketball wants to maintain location for the Easter tourney - then it needs to lift its game. At a BARE MINIMUM, it needs to overcome the dysfunctional rivalry between SA metro clubs that appears to dampen participation.
Option 2. Shift the tournament to southern NSW, I reckon to Albury. Transport links are good - well within a days travel from Adelaide, Melbourne and Sydney. Facilities in the area have improved. The character of the Easter tourney changes - played on neutral ground, it will represent the best hit out for metro clubs prior to the NJC. My bet is that the country teams from north and western Vic, southern NSW, eastern SA will support it. The prospect of them beating metro clubs is like catnip to them.
Thoughts are welcome - but please spare the rest of us the spectacle of a mud slinging contest between SA metro clubs. It is so boring and leads no where.

It's a Club Tournament. If Albury want to put on a Easter Tournament there's nothing stopping them. Up to the clubs which they choose to support.
There used to be multiple Oz Day Tournaments, still are multiple Queens Birthday Tournaments. It's not a case of Norwood giving up the right, its a case of the market choosing.

You've highlighted one reason it's actually not perfectly timed for U18 Club teams, AJC soon after.

Relationships matter. Something they need to learn is that relationships are built on delivering mutual value to stakeholders as individuals. Norwood aims to deliver value to a few. Aligned with the values of a couple individuals.

Even though it will sound like Norwood bashing, it is run by them as a main fund raiser for them. If they shared the pot with a few other clubs, they would join in and everyone is a winner with a great tournament. I don't know if Norwood has approached other clubs about teaming up, but for the good of the event it needs other clubs to chip in. But they wont because of the bad blood. But other clubs that haven't got any real tournaments such as North, South, Forestville etc should band together and challenge for that weekend. Once interstate teams see variety of teams they would be all for it. Only problem would be availability of venues if Norwood hasn't already booked them out.
Its been mentioned on this forum numerous times about the management of Norwood, they should be going to other clubs and say, lets share the pot if you come to the party and it could be big again.

So it appears many agree that there is considerable scope for upside if this tourney is run well. Where is BSA? IMO if they don't intervene to establish a BSA tournament, then they forfeit the right to complain if one or more regional clubs in southern NSW stage a tournament that competes with the Norwood event.

At the end of the day, it's a volunteer organised tournament run to provide funds for the Norwood basketball club. Volunteers come and go, and subjectively this changes the way the tournament is run. (There’s also nothing stopping volunteering to make it better....)

Other clubs are free to run a tournament on the same weekend, and this is no different to other long weekends where there’s been a choice (for example Ballarat, Mildura and Melbourne hosting tournaments on the same long weekend come to mind). If anything it provides more choice for different levels of teams to participate. And as said above it’s the market that chooses.

Some rival SA clubs used to make it compulsory for teams to participate in the Easter Classic, but shifted focus to the EDJBT and then chose to give teams a choice on the understanding that it was another basketball carnival in addition to asking families to play carnivals in January, state champs in May, and June.

Of course, the decision by other SA clubs to not make their participation compulsory is influenced by factors such as not making money out of it and a dislike of Norwood (rivalries never die). And evidently the timing of the AJC doesn’t help.

But ultimately given it isn’t compulsory, it shouldn’t come as a surprise that people when given a choice actually want a weekend off.

Wow. Of course North shares lights with other sports and community groups. Unless another sport is doing a tournament as well, it wouldn't be used as it's a long weekend. If North books it out for whole weekend, no doubt management would grab the dollars. It's just a matter of someone making a move to rival what Norwood thinks it's their right to own Easter weekend. Interstate teams have been complaining for last few years they are basically playing their own teams with no variety of SA clubs. Sooner than later they're going to stay home. Just looking at Starplex tournament it was mainly Centrals, Eastern and Pt Pirie teams because North were attempting, badly, to run their own.

^ Actually you are wrong about North running a tournament. It was never a tournament but pre-season games with Sturt and South with each club nominating 3 teams in each age group, boys and girls. Teams were a combination of Div 1,2,3 players so coaches could see players. Players could even be moved between teams in same age groups. No trophies, no win at all cost but a way to get games in especially given Eltham wasn't available. Refs, venues, programs put together at short notice by three clubs working together. I am sure this group could easily manage a tournament especially with their interstate contacts and prior experiences.

By the way each team needed to pay between $120 - $150 for on average 5 games. What is Norwood charging? Do the math on benefit to them

Hey 953, curious about your comment the standard was rubbish. Considering there was Championships through to "social" in some age groups do you mean they were all rubbish, or that they weren't all Championship level? Looks like it is a carnival where teams can play in their level, challenge a higher level, just have a fun weekend and some probably use it as training sessions to work on plays in game environment?

And still the defence. It was great years ago with top teams coming over and other clubs entering. I have no problem with Norwood running it, just that it has slipped considerably. Hence the lack of high level interstate teams. Maybe you should work out the reason for local teams avoiding it and as a result, interstate teams as well. The main reason high level interstate teams stopped coming was that they were only playing the same teams they already play, why come all the way to Adelaide. The reason they used to come was to play against different Adelaide teams, not each other. Be great if it could become great again, but you need to get off your high horse and realise its a second rate tournament these days.

We're very happy to run a successful carnival at all age groups for those clubs/teams who want to try out players, see how their structure works and to kick the year off. Great country representation and as a club we encourage most of our teams to play up an age group, especially with the number of country teams participating. Having said that we are working on ideas for the next carnival, and more than happy to hear from others about what they think could help Basketball in SA to kick 2022 off!
