Newsletter of the Rowville Rockets Basketball Club
Dear Rockets Families,
You may be aware the figures of the Club presented at the AGM were incorrect.
The financial statement attached to this newsletter are the actual figures. These figures have been resubmitted to the auditor.
Last season it was decided by the committee not to increase the fees to see what effect the GST would have on the club. As you can see fees will have to be increased for next
season as the Club can not continue to carry the expense created by the GST.
I would like to thank the families who participated in the Club survey. It is important for the committee to know your thoughts and ideas. Many families have indicated in the survey that you would like the players looked at more thoroughly when assessing them for next season. To do this we require two extra Co-ordinators. With approximately 350 players in the club, extra help is needed. Please contact me if you wish to help your child, it is not that difficult a job to do.
Finally for those of you who have access to the internet, Rowville Rockets has its own web site. It is very well done and I would like to thank Aldo Sedecvich for setting it up, so please visit the site and pass on your thoughts to us.
President - Rowville Rockets Basketball Club

Welcome to the new committee members
recently elected at the Annual General
Meeting. You will find a list of members with phone numbers attached to this newsletter.
To ensure the ongoing success of the Rowville Rockets Basketball Club, a new initiative for this year will be the introduction of sub committees. The general committee positions have been split into 3 new sub committees that are relevant to the roles they will be performing.
The sub committees will be
Each one of these committees have been set individual goals and objectives and is committed to the delivery of each of them throughout the course of the year.
All sub committees will continue to report back to the executive committee and will be chaired by a member of the executive committee. The general committee will continue to meet
bi-monthly to ensure continuity and involvement by all members in the running of the club.
This initiative will allow members of each sub
committee to concentrate on the goals and
objectives for their committee and ensure that more time is given to achieving more for the basketball club.
The incoming committee is very excited about this new initiative and is looking forward to working within this new structure. We believe it will allow the committee to offer more to you, our members.
Of course if you have any issues that you would like to discuss about this new initiative or any matter, please feel free to contact me on
