Dandenong Basketball Association Inc. is delighted to announce the appointment of Larissa Anderson as our association’s General Manager.
Larissa has a distinguished history in the sport of basketball and here in Dandenong as a player and elite coach at SEABL & WNBL level and, along with her background in managing her own public relations company, brings a wealth of experience and enthusiasm to DBA.
A familiar face for anyone who has spent time at Dandenong Stadium over the past two decades, Larissa played over 300 WNBL games for multiple clubs and coached our former WNBL program for four seasons including our 2016-17 Grand Finalist team. But with that superb basketball resume Larissa will also bring the business acumen and team leadership that Dandenong Basketball needs going into our next chapter.
For DBA President Dale Wood this appointment was a very positive outcome, viewing Larissa as the perfect candidate to lead DBA into the future and continue on our elite basketball legacy.
“There’s been a real invigoration of our association in 2021 and Larissa’s appointment will give that a further boost going forward,” said Dale. “Nobody is more aware of our history than Larissa and the legacy we want to continue to grow in Dandenong.”
“Her experience, leadership and basketball knowledge will help us strengthen our club on & off-the-court, and on behalf of the entire association I’d like to welcome her back as an important member of the DBA Family.”
Larissa has now formally commenced her role her at Dandenong, so we encourage all the members of the DBA Family to say hello when you see her familiar face back at Dandenong Stadium. Welcome back Larissa!
