Uniform Day For Existing Players


With the exciting opportunity of our new sponosr Austin Land Lara we have used this opportunity to introduce of the NEW reversible uniforms. We are having a sizing & order day for existing & past players on Saturday August 17. This is a massive task as it is compulsory for all players to wear the new uniform for the start of the Summer season which starts in early October.

With hundreds of people expected to get thru & with many from the same families, we have broken the day up into alphabetical order. Please try & come during your expected time to reduce delay times & be patient with our wonderful volunteers

  • 10am to 11am – Surnames A to C
  • 11am to 12noon – Surnames D to H
  • 12 to 1pm – Surnames I to O
  • 1pm to 2pm – Surnames P to S
  • 2pm to 3pm – Surnames T to Z
  • 3pm to 4pm – Make Up Session for those who missed earlier

All uniforms of existing players need to be order before August 23 to receive the $20 discount. With so many to get thru we ask new players to wait till our uniform day in the September holidays. New uniform of Reversible Singlet & Shorts RRP of $85 will be reduced to $65 for any existing players or those who have played in the last 12 months. If you have purchased a full price uniform in the last 6 months you will be eligible for a further discount, details to be confirmed with our records.

All players will be required to wear the new uniform for the start of the Summer season or face penalties for being out of uniform by Basketball Geelong.

All new players who have not currently have a uniform will be invited to our usual uniform day during the September school holidays where they can purchase their uniforms from our pre-ordered stock.

This is a extremely exciting time for our club as we continue to grow. This no longer means we have to have clash tops or hire uniforms for Lara v Lara games. We are also extremly excited to have Austin Land Lara on board as our new uniform sponsor.
