About us

Established in 1979, Basketball Moe Inc. is a local, volunteer ran basketball association that provides junior and senior players the opportunity to play and learn the skills of the game of basketball in a safe and enjoyable environment.

We strive to build continued improvement in basketball in our local area by creating opportunities for all persons involved in the game to develop their skills and knowledge through our development programs and through the promotion of Basketball Victoria’s high performance pathways.

Basketball Moe Inc. promotes and encourages a range of positive values such as fair play, integrity, equal opportunity and inclusion, good sporting conduct and a sense of community.  

Key facts on Basketball

Basketball is the 2nd highest team participation sport in Australia, with approximately one million men and women, boys and girls participating in the sport throughout the country.

Sports participation data from the Australian Bureau of Statistics (October, 2012) shows that basketball has defied the national trend and has continued to grow its already strong participation base among children.

In 2012, the Children’s Participation in Cultural and Leisure Activities survey collected information on participation in sport, cultural activities and the use of technology for children aged between 5 and 14. Overall, the study found that 42,000 fewer children were playing organised sport than three years prior. However, basketball participation for 5 – 14 year olds increased by 7.9% or 18,000 participants over this time period.

This growth in participants is remarkable when you consider that the same study found nearly all other major participation sports, including Australian Rules Football, Cricket, Swimming, Netball and Tennis suffered a decline in participation levels within this same timeframe.

We strive to promote and encourage healthy and active lifestyles and aim to build a culture of fair play, integrity, equal opportunity, good sporting conduct and a sense of pride in our community.

We offer a number of development opportunities through participation in our Meteors Representative program which provides athletes with access to quality coaches and the opportunity to compete against the best players from neighbouring associations at tournaments throughout the year.

Our Country Basketball League teams provides similar opportunities to senior participants through a series of home and away games against associations from across the Gippsland region. 


At Basketball Moe Inc., we recognise that providing development opportunities for all those who contribute to our association is of paramount importance to the continued strength and success of our organisation. 

Each year, our panel of experienced, qualified coaches run a series of workshops for our grass roots, volunteer coaches with an aim to improve their knowledge and understanding of the game, which in turn provides better opportunities for the youth participating in our programs.

Our referees are also regularly encouraged to improve their knowledge and experience through our referee development program which provides a range of opportunities to learn from our mentor referees and qualified referee coaches.
