Players and families of the Oshkosh West Basketball Club,
As many of you know, the uniforms that players in the
Oshkosh West Basketball Club, Inc. (OWBC) have worn over the past several years
have been discontinued. Over the past
several months the Board of Directors has been working on replacement solutions
for OWBC players.
We have worked through many models of replacement; including
alternate years, boys versus girls and older grades versus younger grades. Quite simply, the easiest and most efficient
way to manage the changeover is to switch all teams and players at once.
As part of our mission and focus we discussed at length the
finances of OWBC and the burden this will place on the families that make up
our Club. The past several years we have
seen great support from our families and surrounding community in our season
kickoff fundraising events and hosted tournaments. During our Board of Directors meeting in
June, the Board voted unanimously for OWBC to fund the new uniforms for all
players selected to play for OWBC in the upcoming 2014-15 club basketball
We hope you will continue to support the fundraising events
and hosted tournaments in the years to come to allow transitions such as this
to be possible.
If you have any questions or concerns, please contact any
member of our Board of Directors. Contact information can be found on the OWBC
website (www.owbc.org). We hope you enjoy the remainder of the summer
and look forward to seeing you “in the gyms” this year.
