The Kilsyth and Mountain District Basketball Association Inc. (K&MDBA) was established in 1963 to promote and control basketball in Kilsyth and surrounding districts, principally by conducting competitions for Basketballers registered with the Association. Today Kilsyth Basketball is one of the largest Basketball Associations in Victoria, responsible for over 1,050 domestic Basketball teams with over 10,000 registered players playing the game of Basketball each week in its venues and competitions.


The Kilsyth Cobras are the representative teams of Kilsyth Basketball.  At the senior level, the Cobras compete in the prestigious NBL1 – Australia’s premier winter competition – and also field men’s and women’s development teams in the Victorian Youth Championship Competition (VYC). The Association also has over 30 junior boys and girls representative teams that compete in the Victorian Junior Basketball League (VJBL).
