SPOC Basketball

SPOC Basketball has had a great year with many records being broken including:

  1. The most players we have ever had on our list
  2. The most players at a training night
  3. The most teams fielded in a season
  4. The most attendees at an end of season dinner

We also had 3 out of 6 teams in the Grand Finals, with all 3 going into extra time.  Our C Team took the flag, giving them back-to-back premierships.

Our B Team won their Old Scholars' Week encounter with PAOCA, reclaiming the Strangways Cup after an 8 year gap.

SPOC Basketball has recently joined forces with PAOCA with the intention of forming a new basketball league for next season.  In particular we are trying to strengthen the A Grade competition which has been dominated by our two clubs for so long.  This is a bold idea which has been gradually gaining traction in the basketball fraternity. Further updates will follow on our Facebook page.
