In a significant win for its member clubs Big V Basketball is excited to announce the signing of Box Hill Institute as its Official Tertiary Education partner (South/East) for the 2k11 season.
Known for its collaborative and creative approach to education Box Hill Institute offers a range of courses across many different study areas and has an outstanding reputation linked to their Diploma of Sport and Recreation and Diploma of Sport Development.
This newly created relationship between Big V and Box Hill Institute will see Big V become a part of the official sports curriculum. Students from Box Hill will partake in a range of activities with Big V clubs and the league office that link directly to their course, giving them the benefits of practical experience as part of their higher education.
Big V CEO Raelene Whitten has praised this new and exciting partnership with Box Hill Institute. “The signing of Box Hill Institute as a partner of Big V is a significant step forward for the league. It gives our clubs direct access to enthusiastic students who will be of a great benefit to their Big V programs. We also see this as outstanding opportunity for Big V to give back to the sport of basketball by providing experience to the next generation of sports administrators. My team has worked tirelessly to get this pilot off the ground and we hope to roll it out in the North West region in the coming year.”
Box Hill Institute Business Programs Sports Co-ordinator, John Gillard also believes this partnership with Big V is one that is a win/win for both organisations. “One of Box Hill’s key planks in underpinning our approach to education is to create a culture of community involvement. Our new partnership with the Big V will allow our students to get out into the Victorian basketball community and gain life experiences that will directly link to their education and chosen career path. We have been impressed by the leagues willingness to work with us and look forward to growing this program over the coming years.”
The partnership with Box Hill Institute continues a stellar week for the Big V as the 4th partnership announced in 4 days, a strong indicator in the leagues growing strength.
