Our club originally started playing in the Life Be In It Competition at Kambrya College, but we have now joined the Casey Basketball Association where games are played Midweek, Saturday’s and Sunday’s.
The indoor stadiums where we play allow for year round competition with the Summer season generally commencing at the beginning of Term 4 and the Winter season commencing at the beginning of Term 2.
The club aims to provide opportunities for all players and caters for juniors simply looking to have some fun and get fit, right through to players with the desire to improve and compete at a higher level including representative basketball.
Our aim is to keep fees manageable to all families, and we as a not for profit organisation aim to make any additional resources are wisely invested back into the club to guarantee maximum benefit to our players.
Our committee, coaches and team managers are always on hand to provide any necessary assistance to players or parents and to ensure that our club continues to grow from strength to strength.
The committee works very hard to ensure that players are put into teams that will support their own growth and development. Some kids are very competitive and strive for A grade, some however, love to just play! From G grade to A grade we work with the kids to find the right place in the club for them at Fielders. We also provide opportunities for players to play ‘up’ in a higher age group. This allows them to develop their skills further in readiness for coming seasons.
We also encourage older players to start developing their ‘coaching’ skills. With many younger teams we provide a training program for older players to become Assistant Coaches with the view of becoming a Fielders Coach.
Fielders Basketball Club prides itself on being an inclusive club and all junior teams have one hour allotted training sessions each week to enable all juniors the opportunity to improve on their skills. Our role as coaches and team managers is to make sure our players have improved from the start of the season to the end of the season
