About Us

Malvern Tigers Basketball Club organises training and competitive games for over 85 junior teams, playing all year round. We cater for boys and girls aged between 6 and 18 years of age with any skill level, including those who have never played basketball before.

Our club started in 1990, with just one team of primary school children playing in the Malvern Junior Basketball Association. Now, Malvern Tigers Basketball Club Inc. participates in the Waverley Basketball Association’s domestic competition with multiple boys and girls teams in each age group from Under 8 to Under 20. We provide an opportunity for more than 700 players per summer and winter season to enjoy the benefits of a positive, structured, team environment and to develop their basketball skills.

Our 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:

  • Teach the skills and fundamentals of basketball
  • Develop confidence in children so they ‘have a go’
  • Ensure all children have fun playing the game
  • Develop team-work, cooperation and resilience
  • Instil positive attitudes and respect for team-mates, opponents, officials and coaches

In summary, it’s all about SKILLS, FUN and VALUES!
