MAP TO TRAINING COURTS
We welcome all our domestic players and parents to the new season. Attached is a map showing the majority of our current training venues, as well as a detailed map of how to get to the AllSaints gym.

Mouthguards - wear them!
Willetton Basketball strongly recommends that ALL basketball players (adults and children) play basketball wearing mouthguards. A mouthguard can protect against chipped, broken or lost teeth, bone damage to the jaw, or tissue damage. A custom fitted mouthguard is ideal, but a $10 basic guard available from a pharmacy or our canteen will give basic protection. Basketball can be high impact, and a mouthguard could protect against very expensive dental repair work.
SGM Wednesday 23 July 2014
A Special General Meeting will be held at the Willetton Basketball Stadium on Wednesday 23 July 2014 at 6.30pm. The proposed changes to the constitution to be considered at this SGM are to be found in the attached notice.
Willetton Basketball club are fortunate to have secured Corpus Christi and All Saints College as training venues, to ensure that as many teams as possible, both Domestic and WABL have appropriate training facilities. It is vital that we respect the venues and the people who work there, so we ask that all players observe the following:
It is important that these rules are followed to ensure that the colleges continue to provide their facilities to us.
Girls Classes - extra training
Did you know that Willetton Stadium runs a "Girls Only" PINK BALL training session every Friday afternoon during term time? Classes begin at 340pm and there is no need to book, just come along. Classes are for girls 9 years old and over and cost $7 a session. They run for 50 minutes. For further information please ring the stadium on 9310 3388.
Hire of tables and chairs

On busy afternoons many 4x4s (mainly) are parking up on the kerb and verges around the stadium. This poses a safety hazard as the verges are for use by pedestrians, including children. It is difficult for oncoming traffic to see around these vehicles, posing a risk to pedestrians.
We ask that our basketball community please make use of parking across the road outside the old Chicken Treat (which is currently vacant) or alternatively to park by the Sports Club building and walk through if the parking lot is full.
Referee development opportunity
'Willetton Referee Development Program' is now open to all referees at Willetton who want to improve their officiating in a fun and interactive meeting each month. For more information please contact your referee supervisors.
Willetton Basketball Stadium runs skills classes for kids through the week during term time. Classes are $7 a session and there is no need to book. All classes start at 340pm. Ring the stadium if you have any questions during business hours on 9310 3388.
