The Sherbrooke Basketball Association is gearing up for another season and there are now opportunities for both individuals and teams to get involved at all levels.
The current season is drawing to a close with finals for the domestic competition running over the coming weeks.
The season though has been a big success with over 60 registered teams, as well as regional representative teams for both juniors and seniors.
The finals will see teams from every club involved with both the depth and standard of play improving every year.
This season saw the successful introduction of the girls Under 14 competition for the first time and Sherbrooke hopes to continue to build on this with more opportunities for male and female players at both the domestic and representative levels.
Association Secretary Pam Ball said basketball is a great team sport and is gaining popularity in the hills community.
“It’s a great time for Sherbrooke Basketball, we are seeing strong community involvement, professional development at all levels and growing player numbers particularly at the junior levels,” she said.
The construction of a new basketball stadium at Upwey is also about to commence in coming months which will further improve facilities for the players.
Currently the Association uses venues at Monbulk, Upwey and Cockatoo and players, coaches and the association look forward to utilising the new facility.
