Jacint Rodríguez resigns by surprise as president of the CBT
Núria Grados has become the new president of Club Bàsquet Tarragona. The until now treasurer will replace Jacint Rodríguez in office, who presented her resignation by surprise at the extraordinary assembly held last night.
Grados, until now treasurer, will occupy the position of president until the next elections, scheduled for the end of the season. This change has also caused a reorganization of the positions of the board of directors, in which Jacint Rodríguez will now become the treasurer. His term ended in September and if he had not found a replacement, the club would have had to call elections immediately.
Before the extraordinary assembly, the ordinary one was held, in which the board of directors presented a budget of 548,828 euros and the objective of reducing the debt in order to present a more ambitious project in the short term.
Once the entity's numbers were presented, the board reviewed the sports results obtained by all the club's teams during the 2021/22 season and their objectives. In the men's teams, consolidate the youth project in the EBA team and also the Catalunya Cup category so that the young players have the opportunity to continue training at the Seraglio. As for the female side, achieving the integration of women's basketball within the club, growing in teams and participants.
Finally, the club plans to promote initiatives related to basketball in the territory, improving the relationship with clubs and schools, and expanding the growing social base in number of members. In addition, it is worth noting the initiative that was launched last season of the Originals CBT together with Club Solc. An initiative aimed at bringing athletes with functional diversity closer to the world of basketball.
Jacint Rodríguez wanted to highlight “everyone's will to continue working on the arrival of players from the base to the first team and maintain the KM 0 model, which has given us so much joy in recent years. We also want our women's teams to continue growing as they are doing and we want to continue betting on the promotion of basketball with our CBT Vopak Terquimsa School”.
