Nick Huxtable - Secretary. Member since 2018 joining the RAVSTASS Ravens in the Eastern Hills Basketball Association (EHBA). Nick's leadership was immediate and he was duly promoted to Comrade Member in 2019. Nick had the vision for growing the basketball program in the Murray Bridge Basketball Association (MBBA). Together with Tylar Delangen and a years planning, RAVSTASS entered the minimum required four (4) teams to establish a club in the MBBA for the 2019/20 Season. Within a year the program had grown to six teams including our first women's basketball team which would win back to back championships. By the 2021/22 Season, the program had doubled to twelve (12) teams and added the first men's MBBA championship. Nick has also served the wider basketball community becoming MBBA Vice-President in 2021 and as 2022 Assistant Coach for the U14 State Country Boys team, as well as Head Coach for the MBBA Development Program. Nick's leadership combines strongly with his marketing acumen, having previously served UniSA Basketball in developing the 'Hoops Good' Logo and Strategy. This was a key contributor to driving the recognition and growth of that program thereby earning him the President's Praise Award in 2009. Nick's management acumen has also assisted the MBBA with their grant acquisition for a new Multi-Sport stadium development. In 2021 Nick made his SA Masters Games (SAMG) debut winning Silver with the Over 30s.
