The Jack Terrill Medial is named in honour of the former Basketball Victoria Country founding President and long time Basketball Victoria Country Council Member, the late Mr. Jack Terrill.
Jack, who passed away in 1973, was one of the driving forces behind the formation of Basketball Victoria Country. At the 1966 Country Annual Delegates Meeting at Country Week, it was decided that an attempt should be made to form a genuine country governing committee which would play a significant role in the future direction of basketball in country Victoria.
Jack Terrill served as President of the Country Council from 1967 to 1973 and was instrumental in creating the policies and procedures under which BVC operates to this very day. Jack’s vision and commitment were formally recognised in 1973 with the introduction of the Jack Terrill Medal. This annual award recognises an outstanding contribution by a Basketball Victoria Country volunteer and is awarded at BVC’s awards ceremony.
