After a very busy March, the Greater Springfield Basketball Association (‘The Pioneers‘) is about to take it up a notch with an even more busy and active April.
First up, we are concluding the first term of our various local UBL competitions.
All these comps have been producing highly competitive games, showcasing the great local talent we have here in Greater Springfield.
With places opening up in the second half of the season for U12 players, now is the time to get in contact and reserve a spot by emailing email@example.com.
After concluding the U12 Girls and Boys trials, our U16 Boys head to State Champs in what will be many of the players’ first experience at this level of tournament.
Coming off a very successful season (heading into semi-finals, at time of writing), the team hopes to emulate the older boys who medalled at the recent U18 State Champs.
Next in line, we are hosting the Beat the Police 2.0 3X3 tournament – partnering with ICYS and The Y – a fun day of competition helping bridge the gap between local youth and police.
The Pioneers are also involved with the opening of Silver Jubilee Park on Saturday, April 22, providing on-court activities throughout the day.
Closing out the month, another first for our Association will be the launch of our Senior Representative program which sees us joining the QSL Youth League.
A part of the QLD State League, our Women’s and Men’s teams will not only be on the road but as an Association we are hosting our home games right here in Greater Springfield.
The teams are ready to go after an almost two-month build-up, and can’t wait to represent our community on this big stage!
