YOU already get amazing value for money attending the Basketball in Regional Victoria Conference (BIRVC)… but what if you could save your country association a pile of it as well?
For just attending the conference and being in the room at the end of proceedings on Sunday afternoon, one lucky association will win one of the best prizes in junior domestic basketball.
That one association will have their 2019 BVC Country Championships entry fees waived.
Straight up. No strings attached. The eight teams you can enter into the BVC Champs will cost your association nothing.
We gave this prize away in 2016 at the very first BIRVC and the result was a remarkable saving for Traralgon Amateur Basketball Association.
Just for winning the final day raffle, Traralgon saved $3,740.
So we’re doing it again. What could your association do with approximately $4,000 of savings on next year’s championships? Be able to send more teams? Take your teams to other tournaments throughout the year with the savings? Re-invest into your association in other ways?
That’s a fantastic blank cheque to distribute to one of our lucky country associations.
Considering the conference is FREE for all associations to attend, there’s really no good reason to miss out. It’s well worth sending to Bendigo your administrators, delegates or other interested association volunteers or members.
BVC manager David Huxtable said the BIRVC was a phenomenal opportunity to network and enhance your association in league with fantastic guest presenters… and the BVC Country Championships prize was the perfect way to cap off the weekend.
“The Basketball in Regional Victoria Conference was a brilliant occasion in 2016 and we want to replicate that success this year,” Huxtable said. “We’ve brought back the raffle prizes – especially the highly-coveted free entry for an association to all BVC Country Championships events for a year.
“Traralgon has been able to put to good use the savings it earned from winning the BIRVC16 prize from the first conference.
“We look forward to seeing everyone in Bendigo next month, hearing from some great guest speakers and presenting this prize to one lucky association.”
The BIRVC18 schedule is jam-packed with fantastic presentations from the likes of SportsGeek founder Sean Callanan, FIBA Oceania’s Amanda Jenkins as well as Basketball Australia CEO Anthony Moore and Basketball Victoria CEO Nick Honey. Conference attendees also receive a free dinner on the Saturday night and will get to hear from Melbourne United head coach Dean Vickerman and Adelaide 36ers assistant coach Tracey York.
The insights, best practice case studies and lessons your association will learn at BIRVC make it a must-attend event for every Victorian basketball association.
