Bunnings BBQ

It’s that time again!

Beavers Basketball Club will be picking up the tongs at Bunnings Warehouse, Kangaroo Flat on Sunday November 10. One of our major club fundraisers, the profits from the BBQ contribute greatly to our ongoing running costs and assist in paying for training courts.

This is also a great opportunity to meet other members of Team Red while making a valuable contribution to the club. If you have a couple of hours to spare and are able to help out, please call or email Peter Allan  to let him know!

Go Beavers!

Summer season around the corner!

The Bendigo Basketball Association Winter domestic season is heading into finals. Good luck to all teams competing – especially those in red! Keep up to date with the finals fixtures here and get along to show your support.

As one season ends, another is about to begin, the 2019/20 Summer Season entries are now open. Time for Team Red to assemble! Join us on Wednesday August 28 from 7pm in the Bendigo Stadium Green Room to begin working through team entries for the new season.

The change from Winter to Summer season means a shift in age groups. As such, some teams may be looking for additional players and some players may also be looking for a new team! If you or your child falls into either category, come along so you don’t miss out!

It’s Bunnings time!

Team Red will be cooking up a storm at the Kangaroo Flat Bunnings Warehouse on Saturday June 15! A major fundraiser for our club, the Bunnings Warehouse barbeques are a vital source of funds to keep the Beavers going.

If you are able to help out for a few hours on the day, please let Peter Allan know by emailing him here. It’s a great opportunity to meet other Team Red members, while also contributing to the successful running of the Beavers Basketball Club.

Go Beavers!

Winter season!

The weather has turned… which in the world of Bendigo Domestic Basketball, means a few things.

Firstly, the winter season grading meetings are on the horizon and we’ll soon be into the season proper. For those seasoned campaigners amongst us, switching from the paper score sheets used during grading to the laptops and stadium scoring presents no problems. However, if you struggle with technology or are not familiar with the ins and outs of stadium scoring, click here to find out all about it! (scroll to the bottom of the page)

The second school term is also when we collect our annual club fees, used mostly to pay for training court hire and keep Team Red in the black! The $1 extra each week paid on game day certainly helps offset this cost, however the additional annual fee is required to make up the difference and also pay for ongoing club operating expenses. If they haven’t already, your team manager or coach will be arranging the collection of club fees in the coming weeks.

And finally, well done to our Beavers under 12’s, who recently had the opportunity to run out with the NBL1 Bendigo Braves! The boys also enjoyed courtside seating for the game. Awesome effort!

Go Team Red!
