Corio Bay Stingrays Big V?

Are they still going to be entering next year?

Initially, with the merger between Basketball Geelong, Supercats and Corio Bay Basketball Association they were to be no-more after this season?

History behind this:
- To enter NBL1 it had to be done through Basketball Geelong and not the Supercats due to the association requirements (i.e referee program and junior basketball).

- Given the rule of associations not allowed to hold an NBL1 licence and a Big V senior divisional team, Basketball Geelong relinquished their Big V entry in D1M handing it to Bellarine Basketball Association.

- The Basketball Geelong (by this time owners of an NBL1 licence) and Corio Bay Association merger took place after the entry of the 2020 Big V season. It was decided in good faith that they would be allowed to roll this over into 2021 after the COVID cancelled season prevented a 'farewell' season.

Just a question, genuinely trying to understand this and don't want to stir crap.

How can Supercats meet the criteria of an NBL1 licence without the Geelong Basketall Association?

Didn't all the NBL1 Clubs need to be an "association", meet junior rep standards and have a referee development program?

When the person running the comp comes from your club do you get different rules?

The profiles on their website all have the Supercats and Geelong united logo's on it.

Looks to me they are the one organisation. Prove me wrong...

Geelong Basketball Association and Supercats are also one organisation.

Since Geelong have NBL1 and Big V (albeit through different brands but the one association), will other NBL1 clubs enter Big V? Would they need a second brand within their association?
