Balwyn Blazers Basketball Club

We are a family oriented club and focus on each of our players thoroughly enjoying their basketball and developing great skills.
New players of all skill levels are welcome.
"Things turn out best for the people who make the best of the way things turn out." John Wooden, legend basketball coach
There are many things happening at Blazers - a lot mainly behind the scenes so I want to acknowledge all our hard working Committee and volunteers for their energy and "can-do" attitude. It makes a big difference having great people around like you!

School Holiday Programs
Looking for something to keep those skills up over the holidays? Please see the flyers below and contact Camberwell Dragons and/or Pete Maunder if you want to go! The camps are on different days so you could even do both if you wished.
Early bird price extended until 29th June for the Dandenong camp.
Camberwell Dragons Junior Development Squad
Camberwell Dragons, www.camberwelldragons.com, our affiliated representative club are holding their Annual Junior Development squad for boys and girls in u9 and u11. This is a great opportunity to do some extra training, learn some new skills and think about possibly playing representative basketball. Please see details in the flyer below
Refereeing - Did you know that referees at Balwyn home courts now fall under our Club's duty of care?
They now CHOOSE to ref at Balwyn, where previously they were allocated here. I know from personal experience as a coach that it is sometimes frustrating when you don't see things the way referees do... please just be mindful that they are also human and deserve respect, just like we all do. I want us to have the best refereeing culture in the EDJBA and that can only happen with the support of everyone in the Club. I will also encourage our refs to be open in dialogue with coaches. Let's make sure we give our refs a pat on the back, even after a hotly contested game that you felt a little hard done by!
Every Friday during the school term at Balwyn High School. There is more information in the column on the left of this page.
Remember that we are still playing Round 9 this Saturday 27th June, even though school holidays have just started. We will kick-off again after holidays with training beginning Mon 13th July, and Round 10 on Sat 18th July. GO BLAZERS!
