"Things turn out best for the people who make the best of the way things turn out." John Wooden, legend basketball coach
There are many things happening at Blazers - a lot mainly behind the scenes so I want to acknowledge all our hard working Committee and volunteers for thier energy and "can-do" attitude. It makes a big difference having great people around like you!
Refereeing - Did you know that referees at Balwyn home courts now fall under our Club's duty of care? They now CHOOSE to ref at Balwyn, where previously they were allocated here. I know from personal experience as a coach that it is sometimes frustrating when you don't see things the way referees do... please just be mindful that they are also human and deserve respect, just like we all do. I want us to have the best refereeing culture in the EDJBA and that can only happen with the support of everyone in the Club. I will also encourage our refs to be open in dialogue with coaches. Let's make sure we give our refs a pat on the back, even after a hotly contested game that you felt a little hard done by!
New Customised Blazers Warm Up Tops - if you haven't collected your order, please come to Balwyn Leisure Centre on Thursday 6-8pm.
Every Friday during the school term at Balwyn High School. There is more information in the column on the left of this page.
This weekend (Round 6) is the final week of the grading phase. Hopefully your team has landed somewhat close to the standard in which they should play in. Most importantly, control the controllables and enjoy the game for what it's worth. GO BLAZERS!
