The St Anne's Basketball Club (SABC) was established in 1992 by Angela Greatorex to give children an opportunity to participate in a team sport. SABC is based in East Kew and welcomes children of all abilities into a supportive environment. The club's basic objectives are to teach skills and to encourage each player to develop a positive attitude towards themselves, the team, the Club and the game of basketball.
SABC is family oriented and relies heavily on the involvement of parents, siblings and our supporters.
SABC has strong links with a number of local schools, particularly St Anne's Primary School at East Kew, and currently has 21 teams participating each week in the Hawthorn Basketball competition. Hawthorn Basketball comprises nearly 600 teams competing across age groups from under 9's to the under 21's. Hawthorn Basketball select participants for the Hawthorn Magic Junior Representative Program.
- organises its teams' registrations, training sessions and presentation nights; and
- provides the network necessary for families and members of the local community to mix and participate in a fun team environment.
SABC has a very committed team of volunteers as Committee members, coaches, team managers and players, all of whom work hard so that our children can get out there and play basketball every week.
