Another basketball year has finished!
There was three really great Grand Final games to finish off the season. Congratulations to everyone involved, but thank you to Andy Richards for presenting the premier medals. Great to see and have Andy back in the stadium.

Congratulations to Matthew Turnbull on winning the “Spirit of Basketball” award, in memory of Matthew Roodhouse.
Basketball SA and Inclusive Basketball Program would like to thank lots of volunteers for their work that they have done throughout the year.
To the coaches, you have all done a great job the program doesn’t function with you.
Big shoutout to Juanita and Cassie for organising the referees and court supervision each week.
All the volunteers on the score bench, do not go unnoticed the game doesn’t start without you.
Our referee’s many of them in green shirts and still learning their trade, without them we simply do not play.
There is always room for improvement, so I’m hoping 2022 will be an even better year. The planning starts again, with the coaches coming together next week to look at the teams for next season.
Finally a big shout out to out 2021 SA Sports “Team of the Year” our very own SA Ivor Burge Men’s team. The 3 time National champions and working hard on the 4th. These guys have all played Monday inclusive basketball, a great pathway to state and the National team.
Congratulations to all players, coaches and volunteers. Well done on the 2021 season.
Bring on 2022!
