Changes for next season
Summer Season 2015-16 will see a number of significant changes in the way the EDJBA competition is run and how our club manages its administration. Here is a quick run-down.
EDJBA scoring - The EDJBA is introducing electronic scoring this season. The new system will involve laptop scoring replacing paper-based scoring. Our club will be introducing the new system within the season, but a date has not yet been set.
Training will be available for club officials and parents before the new system takes place. In the meantime you can have a look at the new system in a YouTube video called Stadium Scoring Basics.
Singlet numbers - From Summer 2015-16 the EDJBA has approved the use of singlet numbers from 0 to 99. This has allowed our club to introduce a new singlet number allocation policy which should greatly reduce the number of singlet number clashes. Under the new system, new players will be allocated a number based on their date of birth. Existing players will be able to keep their numbers but if there is a clash they may have to move to a new number.
The club has been advised by Telstra that it has been successful in five grant applications of $1200 each under the Telstra Kids Fund Grants program. We expect Telstra will pay the grants funds to the club later this month. They are to be used for basketball uniforms and equipment.
