The Beavers Basketball Club was formed in 1958 with just an under 18 boys team. Since then, the Beavers have continued to grow throughout the years. At present, there are 32 teams playing in Beaver uniforms – from under 10 teams through to A grade mens and women’s teams. Beavers is the only club that provides a progressive structure that allows a player to commence in junior grades and graduate to the top of the senior competition.
Beavers Basketball Club meet on a regular basis and conducts its Annual General Meeting in November of each year, the clubs activities are coordinated totally by the voluntary efforts of its committee, coaches, parents and players.
The club welcomes new parents to join our committee and assist in the running of club affairs. Club representatives are also active on various Bendigo Basketball Association Committees and assist in conducting the local domestic competition and coordinating all other activities concerning basketball in Bendigo.
Beavers Basketball Club require all players within the club pay a registration fee of $20 per season, discounts are available for families of 2 or more children. This fee was introduced to help offset the cost of training courts and other club expenses.
The club also run a number of fundraising activities throughout the year including barbeques (at Bunnings Warehouse) and court management during the Australia Day Basketball tournament.
All junior players pay an additional $1 per game with their game fee. This fee is collected by the coach or manager and paid to the Bendigo Stadium Sports Office with the game fee. The BBA take their game fee and the extra dollars are placed into a Beavers envelope available at the office.
All Beavers players must wear our standard uniform. This includes red basketball shorts and a sublimated, reversible club playing top, made by Step in Sports.
Small & medium uniforms $60 + GST
Large uniforms $60 +GST

Training is the clubs largest expense, hiring venues to train our teams accounts for a large proportion of our yearly budget. Our training venues charge between $22 and $33 per hour, the annual registration fee and additional $1 that all juniors pay on game night goes towards paying these expenses.
Training times are very limited and there is often a need to have more than one team at a time at a training session, usually players of the same age divisions will train together. Most team training is conducted on Monday, Wednesday and Thursday at various venues, commencing at 4.00 or 4.30pm with the younger teams.
The Beavers Basketball Club sole objective is to foster junior basketball. Our club philosophy is to teach children the game of basketball, enjoy the training and to play the game in the right spirit.
Beavers, over many years, have been able to provide players the opportunity to develop their skills and achieve their goals, with many players going on to represent Bendigo, Victorian Representative teams and also achieve selection in Australian teams. If players are committed, Beavers Basketball Club will provide the opportunities and encouragement.
