Along with the players, the committee and the coaches are key members of the club and its success. Our coaches believe in focusing on basketball fundamentals at junior level, this includes layups, shooting, passing, dribbling, rebounding and defence. At Blazers we believe basketball not only gives players confidence on the court but also at school and other areas of their life. We have several senior coaches that have been involved in the game for many years who will ensure that your child will develop in a fun, safe and positive environment.

The committee is made up of a number of parents, coaches and other volunteers. If you would like to volunteer for a position on the committee or just be a general committee member please feel free to contact us as we are always looking for more volunteers.

NEW Committee members required now for 2022, please contact our club President if you are interested (details below).
