Clash Tops thanks to Lara Community Bendigo Bank
July 4th, 2015

Thanks to the support of the Lara District Community Bank we were able to purchase new clash tops.  These tops are designed to be used when two Lara teams play each other, which is happening more & more as we have so many teams now playing.  The tops are similar in design as our current ones, however are more of a mirror image between the blues along with being made from light weight material & all printed logos, numbers etc.

tmp

On Saturday the 4th July 2015 we helped Lara District Community Bank celebrate their 6th birthday & showed our support by thanking them for the tops.  Show your support & visit the branch for all your banking needs

BG registration is an annual registration and may be due at the start of the Summer or Winter season. If your BG registration is due you should have received an email from BG already.

• Lara Basketball Club registration.
All LBC registration is due at the start of the Winter season (ie now) and covers the Winter and Summer seasons. There is a link at the top of this page to the right of the Giants logo “Club Membership” to register and pay membership fees.  https://reg.sportingpulse.com/v6/regoform.cgi?formID=13368
