The sessions will be conducted as follows: 


The goal of the BMBA is to make training and coaching available to juniors that they normally wouldn’t be able to have access to. Our ambition is to provide opportunities for every junior player who participates in our BMBA program to learn & acquire new skills, to improve on current ones, and to gain increased knowledge about the strategies of the game.


Through these sessions the BMBA will be looking to form teams, appoint coaches and commence weekend competitions from the start of term two in 2024.

The BMBA offer three levels of training depending on how much basketball juniors have played and how advanced their skill development is. These sessions are.


Kids First Basketball – Kids First Basketball is an introductory training program for our youngest participants who are just starting in basketball. The objective of this program is to introduce basic skills, drills and rules in a fun format.


Basketball Plus – This is more advanced training for juniors who have already played basketball or have the potential to train at this level, where our Kids First program is not challenging enough for them.


BMBA Games – This program is a combination of a Basketball Plus training session with a weekend game.


Individual Development Program (IDP) – A more intense training predominately aimed at players with higher skill levels and game knowledge who want to take their game from a good level to an elite one.


Representative Basketball – If your son/daughter is motivated about playing higher levels of sport, then the BMBA will be developing squads throughout 2024 to represent the BMBA program in tournaments, practice games and hopefully in representative competition later in the year. If this is something your son/daughter would be interested in then please CLICK HERE to register your interest.


BMBA Basketball Competions in 2024

The intention of all these training sessions is to generate interest and form teams for BMBA basketball competitions to start in term Two of 2024.


Our juniors will enjoy the following through these competitions:


—->  Longer Game Times

—->  Independent knowledgeable coaching

—->  A high standard of refereeing

—->  Competition rule that put player development first

—->  An exciting end of season tournament where all teams participate

—->  Transparent selection and formation of teams where we attempt to make every teams as competitive as possible.

—->  As our coaches are in paid roles they will be directed t assist each other to ensure their is the appropriate respect for 

        the game, the participants, the facilities and the officials.

—->  Opportunities to tryout for and join BMBA representative teams for the chance to pay at higher more elite levels of basketball.


We put these competitions features in place when we ran competitions for the Oakleigh Basketball Association and our kids then absolutely loved their competitions.


At this stage we will be running Boys competitions on Saturdays and girls on Sundays, though this could change if we get feedback that it would beneficial before then. To make it easier to form teams we will be conducting competitions in age groups of Under 8’s, Under 10’s, Under 12’s, Under 14’s, Under 16’s and Under 18’s.


We are excited to be introducing local basketball competitions for the youth in the Mulgrave/Springvale/Westall suburbs and the surrounding regions. We hope you can share in that excitement by helping us form teams and build these competitions.

From there we will make recommendations on where you child will be best placed.

Our Kids First sessions run for 60 minutes, all other sessions for 90 minutes.

Others may be bigger but we're better
