Where do teams train?
Sandy Saints teams train at various venues in Bayside including Sacred Heart Primary School, Sandringham Secondary College and Black Rock Primary School. Not all teams are guaranteed an indoor court due to the high demand from many clubs across Bayside. Teams are not allowed to train at a venue not endorsed by the club due safety and public liability
Where do I get a uniform?
Uniforms can be purchased online and pickup details will be provided by the uniforms co-ordinator.
Who provides a Team Manager and Coach?
Our club does not provide a TM or Coaches and these roles are typically filled by volunteer parents. We encourage older siblings of players to be Junior Coaches and this is a great way to learn more about the game and get involved. All Coaches and Team managers must also complete child safety training. Payment for Junior Coaches is under local agreement between the team and coach.
What are the player pathways beyond Sandy Saints club level?
Players can try out for Representative Basketball each year around September. Refer to the SBA website for try out dates and details. The SBA also run development programs and camps to further develop player skills.
