After our season of "Revolution" this year was always about "Evolution"
The club has been expanding over the years and now has matured into the high performing (Division 1) and still inclusive (largest club membership) basketball program that the club's leadership team envisioned.
This maturity now places some new challenges for our club.
Starting with a clear understanding of our club culture and our image.
We have been exploring what the club means to us and what we want its image to project.
Many of our members, and the basketball community, have been "work-shopping" everything our club means to us. In short, we have been defining our own "Culture".
One of the outputs from these sessions is our very own Wolves "Pyramid of Success" which gives a brief summary of all the layers that will deliver on the club's "Ambition" and "Purpose".
These values are "OUR" values. They have been developed by "US" and will be lived and championed by all of us.
Our "Pyramid of Success" is just the start of our Cultural Awareness Journey. We will now have to develop our very own "Code of the Wolf" which will lay out the standards that will support our ability to fulfil our aims and values.
Building and agreeing that code will again be incumbent on us all so stay tuned for our next workshop.
In the meantime, please read carefully our pyramid and lets hear your feedback.
A massive congratulations from everyone at the Wolves to Senior Women player, Sara Plummer, who has completed the very impressive feat of successfully reaching the role of FIBA Table Official.
Sara, who is also a Basketballscotland Level 3 Table official, completed the Digital Scoresheet Software Training (DSS) and is now registered as a FIBA Table Official for the next 2 years.
Well Done Sara!!!!
