With so much going on in our world now they bank is still busy helping us all by providing their continued service. Now might be a time to consider your banking needs & look to re-finance to a great bank on a great rate & with money going back into our club.

U16 Girls

The U16 Girls virtual presentation is thanks to the wonderful Kardinia Osteopathic Clinic. While our basketball lives are on hold we are probably doing a lot of things that are bad on our body, in particular our posture with home offices, lounging around watching movies & living on our devices. So be sure to check out a great bit of information from Kardinia to help with these situations https://www.kardiniaclinic.com.au/desk-set-up

Thanks guys for your support & we look forward to having Liam back giving us from tips on the basketball court as well as before & after games.

U18 Boys

The U18 Boys virtual presentation is with thanks to the wonderful APCO Service Stations. With all of the craziness on in the word it is good to know that Apco is still open 24 hours a day & not only has all our petrol needs (which are so cheap at the moment) as well as many of the basics without going to the supermarket including bread, milk & plenty more. Thanks to all the Apco stores in Geelong, especially our local Lara store with Dean & his wonderful team. Thank you also for our coaches for their efforts & well done to the boys for their season.

U18/20 Girls
