Well, we are well and truly into the silly season, where
we have not only your local leagues running but also
your representative programmes happening.
I wish to congratulate all those associations who have
teams going to Nationals, and also wish your association
all the best for the coming premierships.
While on tournaments: Please ensure that all the
rules and regulations of the tournaments are passed
down to your coaches/Managers. Any team caught
with players that are not eligible will lose all their
points and may be disqualified from playing the rest
of the tournament.
The other thing to remember is as each new league
starts you should be updating your FIBA Organiser, if
you aren’t already. In fact every time you go into FIBA
and make changes you should synchronies your
database to the web. At this stage the association with
the biggest amount of members is Palmerston North.
Well done there Willie for keeping everything up to date.
In the next couple of months I am hoping to organize
some more workshops on FIBA Organiser, to help take
the majority of associations to the next level of using the
software. I am aware that the majority of bigger
associations are using FIBA well, but I would like to see
the smaller associations using it as well, as over time it
will save on your administration time. Can you let me
know if your association is interested in taking FIBA to
the next stage and how to utilize their web page.
there is anything else your association needs
assistance with, can you please let me know, so we can
cover that off at the same time.
Thanks Nelson for your update, it was so informative for
me that I have added it in the newsletter, as a great
example of how you can keep me and others informed of
what is happening in your area. Thanks Chris.
Keep on pumping and a special thank you goes out to all
the volunteers who are running the Premierships
throughout New Zealand, BBNZ appreciates you.
Yours in sport
