The Corio Bay Basketball Association wishes to announce that it has agreed to release Jason Reardon from his contract with our State Championship Mens team effective immediately. Jason will still hold his position of our Under 12 Boys Head Coach as well as a general committee member with the CBBA.
"Whilst we are disappointed to lose a player of Jason's experience, we understand the decision that has been made," President Michael Nelson said. "We are clearly in a rebuilding phase and that is difficult to do with a player who is still in the top 5 players in the league. It would be unfair to ask him to sacrifice his game at this stage of his career."
"With Jason leaving, this gives us the opportunity to give our younger players more experience at the highest level," Nelson said. "They will have the responsibility of leading the team and developing as the core of program for the next few years. We are confident with players like Joel McFall and Michael Rebula that we can achieve this and rebound as a championship contender in the next few years."
Jason has been an integral part of the Stingrays senior program, having initially debuted as part of the Barwon Bullets in the CBL in 2009. 2 CBL Conference and State Championships, 2 Big V State Championship Men titles and numerous All-Star selections have followed in a decorated Stingrays career.
