The Club of the year is judged on a range of criteria, focusing largely on how the club is administered, and particularly the way the club deals and works with other clubs and the league office and its efforts in the promotion and development of the sport.
“Kilsyth have done an exceptional job this year both on and off the court. Great promotion and improved game presentation helped the Kilsyth Cobras record an attendance increase in both men and women games,” said League Manager Mark Quinn.
Kilsyth put in to place a series of initiatives in 2007 including the ANZ shoot for cash, family oriented entry costs, increased media exposure and weekly half time matches for domestic clubs.
Kilsyth Basketball Development Manager Ben Turner said “We are proud to receive this award, which recognises the time and hard work of so many within the club, both volunteers and employees. We sincerely thank all our sponsors including naming rights partner Club Kilsyth and the newly opened Club Ringwood.”
“The increase in attendance was a great reward in 2007, we worked hard to raise the profile of the Cobras, SEABL and basketball in the area. We must acknowledge the fantastic support we received from the local media and look forward to this continued relationship in 2008.”
“We have a few exciting plans for 2008 to improve the basketball product even more. With three Big Wednesday games planned and a range of other game night initiatives Kilsyth will again be looking to provide an exciting basketball experience for the local community”.
Kilsyth thanks the SEABL for this award and looks forward to playing Australia’s Premier Winter Basketball League in 2008.
