Lara Giants Uniform Update


Exciting times are coming up for the Lara Giants. We have a new major sponsor Austin Land Lara This new sponsorship is helping us with the opportunity to introduce brand new design reversible uniforms. We wanted to keep all our members up to date on the progress, the reasons behind the move & key dates & details. We plan to have the new uniforms ready for the summer season & expect all players & teams to wear these uniforms.

Why New Uniforms

There is two main reasons for the new uniforms. One our commitment to our new sponsor and two to introduce reversible uniforms to avoid clashes when two Lara teams play.

With large numbers of teams, we have a number of Lara vs Lara games every single week. We have around 60 teams, including up to 7 in a single age group, which means often we have 3 teams in the one competition.

The task of handing out these clash tops is a time consuming job & takes a lot of co-ordination, especially when teams forget & leave things for the last minute. We also have a number of times when neither team remembers & as a result, we have to hire uniforms from Basketball Geelong which costs the club & therefore our members money.

By going to reversible singlets we will eliminate this need for clash tops & allow our players to wear their own singlets.

How much will the new uniform cost?

New uniforms will be $45 for the reversible singlet & $40 for the shorts. However, everyone who orders on the 17th August will save $20 making the complete set $65

Whats Next?

We are currently working on our newly designed uniform. The design will be a similar colour blue with a more modern NBA inspired look, while on the reverse it will be white. We will be having a uniform come & try day on Saturday August 17. Here we ask all families to come & try on their new uniform & order there uniform in preparation for the summer season. All uniforms ordered on the day will be reduced by $20 per set.

Q. Do I have to pay for the uniform on the day

A. No, you can pay for the uniform when you collect it prior to the summer season.

Q. What if I am not sure if I am playing next summer?

A. Still come along on the 17th of August & order your uniform. If you decide not to play you won’t have to pay.

Q. What if I can’t make the 17th of August?

A. We will have limited opportunities for you to come try on the uniform in the week of the 17th August. More details to come. If you order after the uniform sessions you will have to pay full price for your uniform.

More Information

More information will be available very soon, including the final designs. At this stage please keep in mind Saturday August 17 for the next key date.

We understand buying new uniforms is an expensive process, which is why we want to work with families & give plenty of notice. Many juniors are probably out growing their uniforms & probably due for a new uniform. Existing uniforms can be worn to training to ensure they get maximum value out of them. We want to thank you all for your co-operation in this process. It is a very difficult & challenging time, but we are excited by the opportunity to help take the club to the next step forward.

Go Giants!
