Have your say on the future of Gippsland basketball

Basketball Victoria is seeking community feedback on a draft report which will provide a clear action plan for Gippsland Elite Pathways and the future of the sport in the region. 

It’s part of the Gippsland Basketball Participation and Elite Pathways Project, which is being developed in partnership with GippSport Community Solutions, the Latrobe Valley Authority, Latrobe City Council, Sport and Recreation Victoria and local basketball associations.

Latrobe Valley Authority provided a $35,000 grant for for the development of a Strategic Implementation Plan for an elite pathway model for junior and senior basketball in Gippsland with Latrobe Energy. 

“We have considered the existing basketball structure and programs delivered across Gippsland and have found many different options right across the region for everyone to enjoy basketball,” said Michelle Harris, Senior Sports Consultant at GippSport Community Solutions.

“There is a long and proud history of elite player development and significant depth in the quality and skill level of coaches, referees and administrators.”

GippSport Community Solutions will also host a series of workshops (subject to health advice regarding COVID-19 restrictions) to discuss the draft report before progressing to the next stage of the project. 

“This is a fantastic time to review information collected to date and then help the sport move forward over the next five years.”

You can help shape the future of basketball in Gippsland by providing your feedback on the draft report by 31 July at www.surveymonkey.com/r/IssuesandOpportunitiesFeedback

If you would like more information about this project please contact Jodie Harlow, Basketball Victoria’s Basketball Development Officer – Greater South East Region, including Gippsland, or Michelle Harris at GippSport Community Solutions.
