Winter Teams 2018 – Final

After many meetings we are pleased to announce our Winter teams. We have almost 300 junior players in 38 teams. The coaches & committee have discussed at length every single player & team make up.  One of our aims is to have competitive teams, but our main priority is about the kids having opportunities to play at a division to allow them to have fun & develop. Sometime this is difficult when players are new without try out sessions (which we usually do with the age group change prior to summer season)

While it is often great reward to see kids move up divisions, this can’t always be the case.  Often due to numbers, team balance (i.e positions played) & other reasons this can’t always be the case.  Sometimes, coaches feel that some kids will benefit long term by going down a division. This will give them the opportunity to work on their game, their confidence & become a leader of the group. It is also great to play with your friends or old team mates, however as a club we feel it is also good for the kids to experience different people & team mates as they would in real life.

We do try & keep our team number at 8 or less each team. However, sometimes this isn’t possible due to the number of kids that register.  If your child is part of a team with high numbers, please be patient.

By accepting your position with the Lara Giants Basketball Club, you are agreeing to ensure all efforts will be made for our players to attend all training & games.  If you are unable to attend either of these you must notify your coach within a reasonable time frame.

We will be having a uniform day on Saturday April 14. Here you will be able to try on & collect your uniform & merchandise.

Coaches will contact you over the Easter break to introduce themselves & let you know your training times.  The club will send an email to you all with the steps required prior to playing, including the above information, registration details & other useful bit.  First games start when school resumes for term 2.

If you feel you need to discuss the selections further we are happy to answer your questions or give feedback.  We ask that your perhaps consider the Easter break for families & either send us an email to or with your childs details & how we can help.  Likewise after Easter I am sure if you politely contact your coach they will be happy to discuss any concerns.

We hope to finalise the last couple of groups missing as soon as possible.  We are still short a couple of coaches & trying our best to ensure all kids can play.   Remember all our coaches are volunteers, the club relies on our parents & basketball community to coach. So please consider helping if you can.
