BASKETBALL IS SUSPENDED!!!!!!
To Berwick Basketball Club Members:
Suspension of all games and training effective immediately
In light of the recent spike in Covid-19 virus numbers, and with the health and safety of our athletes and members our main priority, it is with great sadness we suspend all games and training for Berwick Basketball Club.
This decision was not made lightly, and the committee greatly appreciates all the support we have received from our members over the past few months.
Berwick Basketball Club will maintain constant communication with its members during this time, to ensure all updates are passed on as soon as they become available.
The health and safety of our members and players remains our primary focus.
We will continue to monitor the situation in line with guidance provided by government bodies. If there is a change in restrictions, we can hopefully resume training and playing basketball.
We thank you for your ongoing support and patience as the situation continues to unfold.

About Our Club
The Berwick Basketball Club Inc. is one of the largest and longest running basketball clubs in the Berwick/Casey area, with more than 60 Junior Domestic teams across all age groups, from under-8s to under-23s.
These teams compete each season in the Dandenong Basketball Association's Junior Domestic competitions.
The club prides itself on providing an opportunity for children of all skill levels to be involved in Domestic Basketball.
Also, being involved in the Dandenong Basketball Association provides a progression path to Representative Basketball with the Dandenong Rangers for our more competitive players.
Our focus is on developing our junior players; developing their basketball skills along with the values of teamwork, good sportsmanship and leadership.
We aim to provide a safe, sociable, well-run club where children can learn and enjoy the great sport of basketball, and where players of all ages and skill levels are welcome.
Core Club Values

We are grateful to parents who volunteer to coach or manage our teams. All of our coaches and team managers are required to have current Working with Children checks and carry Working with Children approval cards with photo identification, as issued by the Victorian Department of Justice. Development opportunities are offered to all coaches who wish to increase their knowledge and skills.
