In 2018, the Under-14 Club Championships will be held in separate venues with Kilsyth Basketball to host the Under-14 Boys from October 1-6, 2018.
Accommodating an Australian Junior Championship for the first time since hosting the Under-16’s in 2016, Kilsyth is one of the largest basketball associations in Australia and is responsible for 1,000+ domestic Basketball teams with over 14,000 registered players.
The established Hugh McMenamin show court boasts a 1,400 seat capacity while Kilsyth Stadium features six basketball courts overall to house the upwards of 150 games across the week.
“In recent years, Kilsyth Basketball have hosted the Under-16’s two years ago as well as the School Championships in 2012 and 2013 and we are delighted to be returning to the venue again in 2018,” said Paul Maley, General Manager of Competitions.
“Their facilities and professionalism will ensure every athlete enjoys a fantastic experience throughout the week in Kilsyth.”
“Kilsyth Basketball is thrilled to be chosen as the host site for the Under-14 Club Championships in October 2018,” said Garry Conner, Kilsyth Basketball Association CEO.
“This is an incredible opportunity not only for our Association, but also for our local Yarra Ranges and Maroondah City Councils.
“It’s always great to have a chance to showcase our facilities to the rest of the nation, in particular our 1,400 seat capacity Hugh McMenamin show court.
“With some of Australia’s best young talent coming through our doors, it’s exciting to think that we could potentially have some future Australian Boomers playing on our courts.”
