As a relatively new association, Darebin Basketball Associations aims to recognise the importance of representing the community in a true, inclusive fashion. Our association, members and values should be a reflection of who makes up the Darebin area.
DBA has been able to and continues to aim to provide basketball participation opportunities to young people with special needs, senior citizens, community members from the LQBTQIA space, at risk youth through work with community organisations and culturally diverse families and participants.
DBA has been able to embed themselves into our local community through food drives, working with local charity Helping Hoops and developing a strong culture of giving back and support within our families, members and partners.
We hope the above efforts help Darebin Basketball Association solidify its goal of Basketball being a safe and positive sport for all people to participate in, whilst understanding it also as a tool that can help strengthen and bond our community.
