To all our Willetton members
A couple of months ago, we sent out a survey to canvass our members’ views on a range of domestic competition issues. The results were insightful and we thank all of you who took the time to share your thoughts with us, whether it was passing on your compliments or suggesting improvements. As a club, we all want the same good outcome: our kids to enjoy playing basketball.
In the attached document we respond to the main points & questions raised in the survey as well as taking the opportunity to explain where we are at on key issues as we see them around the club. We also provide more information on matters such as the expansion of the stadium, where your money goes, how to get girls more involved in basketball, and the like. We hope you find the outcomes and responses in the attached pdf document as interesting and informative as we have.
