Basketball Stuff

For those of you who didn't know, I play basketball, and this page is dedicated to my personal basketball.

If you live in Melbourne, or just visiting Melbourne, I'm inviting you to come watch us play, or if you are disabled and want to play basketball then come along and see what it's all about. There are a variety of skill levels, so it doesn't matter if you can't play that well, or if you play "Like Mike", there is going to be something there for you. Or even if you're not interested in playing, come along and meet... ME!!! I'm a very approachable person, so if you do come to basketball, just walk straight up to me and introduce yourself. I don't bite... Hard. 8-[)

Divisions

I play in Division 2 for the Power House Basketball Committee, so therefore I only post stuff about Division 2. If you play in, or intend on playing in, another Division and you want to know about those Divisions, then Click Here to go to the official page of the Power House Basketball Club. Although there is a women's championship, women are allowed to play with the men in any division that suits them best, so that women of all skill levels can play.

There are 33 teams in the whole competition, spread over 5 different divisions. The divisions are:

Victorian Championship: 6 teams
Women's Championship: 5 Teams
Division Two: 7 Teams
Division Three: 8 Teams
Division Four: 7 Teams

The teams in the division I play for (Division 2) are:

Fire
Galaxy Strikers
Leppards
Outlaws
Raptors
Razors
Renegades

Venues

With there only being 2 basketball courts at Hawthorn, and the continuing expansion of Power House Basketball Committee, it meant that they had to find another venue to accomodate all the teams. They found Methodist Ladies College (MLC), moved Division 2 over to that venue, and left all other Divisions at Hawthorn. So make sure that if you intend on playing for, or watching, a different Division, that you go to the Hawthorn venue.

Details

Cost

$3.50 - To play. This is charged every week.
$1.00 - To watch. This is also charged every week.
First Time - On your first time to either play or watch, it's free.

Times

There are a couple of reasons why the move to MLC is so good. First being that there are no more 10:00pm games, and secondly, the school itself is fantastic. It's a private school, and as you would expect, the facilities are top notch.

For Division 2

The first game starts at 6:40pm, with the other possible times being 7:15pm & 7:50pm. The games consist of 2 halves, which are 15 minutes each, with 5 minutes in between halves.

For all other Divisions

The first game starts at 6:30pm, with the other possible times being 7:05pm, 7:40pm, 8:15pm, 8:50pm. The games consist of 2 halves, which are 15 minutes each, with 5 minutes in between halves.

Snacks

There are drinks (coffee, soft drinks/soda) and food (hot dogs, sausages, dim sims, chocolates) available for a small price.

Please Note: The snacks are only available at Hawthorn.
