Footscray Hawks Basketball Club was established in 2012 and we currently have 42 registered teams (29 boys and 13 girls) representing the club from age groups U10s to U18s. Our club continues to accept new players to join our waitlist. It is our goal to grow Basketball in the region for girls and boys of all ages and skills.
Our teams play in the Saturday competition run by the Westgate Basketball Association.
The club welcomes new players, and no experience is needed. Please head to our JOIN THE HAWKS page to register your interest.
Alternatively, you can contact the club registrar at firstname.lastname@example.org with your contact details along with your child's name, date of birth and any playing experience (so we can match them to the most suitable team).
We are currently experiencing a very high demand for places. Where places aren't available in an age group, we operate a waiting list for new players.
Age group eligibility
Age groups are defined by the age of a player as of the 31st of December in the year the season ends.
Each team trains for an hour a week on a Monday, Tuesday or Wednesday afternoon or evening. Our training venues are
VU Community Sports Stadium
