The Malvern Tigers Basketball Club is a family oriented organisation competing in the Waverley Basketball Association with the majority of competition games being played at the Waverley Basketball Association Stadium at Batesford Reserve Chadstone.
The Malvern Tigers Basketball Club organises training and competitive games for over 70 children's and adult teams playing all year round. We cater for both boys and girls aged between 6 and 18 years with any skill level, including those who have never played basketball.
Malvern Tigers Basketball Club started in 1990 with one team of primary school children playing in the Malvern Junior Basketball Association. Malvern Tigers Basketball Club now provides an opportunity for more than 600 children per season to participate in a positive structured team environment. Whilst the main emphasis is on providing for the needs of children we also have adult teams of women, men, mixed and veterans playing each week.
The Club's main objective is to offer basketball training and games in a fun and safe atmosphere where winning is not the most important aspect. We hope to foster an enjoyment of the game, whilst developing a sense of team spirit, positive self-esteem and good sports behaviour.
Specifically, our coaches are instructed to implement the following:
- Teach the skills and fundamentals of basketball.
- Develop confidence in children so they 'have a go'.
- Ensure all children have fun playing.
- Develop team-work and cooperation.
- Instill positive attitudes and respect for team-mates, opponents, officials and coaches.
In summary, it is all about SKILLS, FUN and VALUES !
