Playing Basketball for the Lara Giants

At the beginnning of every term we get a lot of enquiries about playing basketball. Basketball is an all year round sport, which is broken up into 2 seasons. A winter season that goes for terms 2 & terms 3 & a summer season that starts with term 4 & resumes after the holidays in term 1.

The Lara Giants is one of the biggest clubs in Geelong, with teams in all age groups & most divisions. The advantage with this is that we are able to help ensure the kids are placed in a division that best suits there ability, experience & confidence.
