KILSYTH BASKETBALL JUNIOR DOMESTIC CLUB AWARDS A HUGE HIT.

Tuesday, November 29, 2011

Monday 28 November 2011 saw the first annual Junior Dometic Awards Function held.

Last night saw the inaugural Kilsyth Basketball Junior Domestic Awards held at Club Kilsyth, with close to 150 in attendance, including Cr Len Cox, Deputy Mayor of the Yarra Ranges Council, Ross Heinrich of the National Australia Bank, members of the K&MDBA Executive and Board as well as Junior Domestic committee members, coaches and players. The night was a true celebration of the Junior Domestic Clubs and the valuable contribution they make to our community.

In 2011 Kilsyth Basketball plays host to 13 Junior Domestic Clubs who entered 474 teams into competitions which equates to around 4,000 local boys and girls aged from 4 to 21 years engaged in the sport of basketball. Each Junior Domestic Club is run by a band of hardworking, dedicated volunteers, who enable our youth to be involved in the sport of basketball while supplying a wholesome family environment to do so. 

Each Junior Domestic Club was invited to submit nominations for a variety of Awards as was the Kilsyth Basketball community as a whole, the inaugural Awards received over 40 separate nominations which we hope to see grow as the event becomes a ‘must not miss’ night for the Kilsyth Basketball Junior Domestic community.
