Ivor Burge Basketball
Basketball Tasmania Mens Team for People with and Intellectual Disability continue be a slam dunk when it comes to flying the flag for sport in Tasmania. Over many years players and coaches have received call ups to national teams, won national awards and even been recognised at the Tasmanian Human Rights Awards.
At the 2018 Basketball Australia Under 20 and Ivor Burge Basketball Championships the team came away with a bronze medal, defeating ACT 81 to 66. To come third at a National Championships is an impressive feat, but the team was also awarded by Basketball Australia Kim Larkin Fair Play Award, recognising the players, staff and supporters that show outstanding sportsmanship in the Ivor Burge Championship. And to make a fairy tale finish complete one of the young guns of the team, Dylan Pace, was award the tournaments most valuable player. the teams 2018 efforts were backed up in 2019, with another Bronze Medal.
Whilst the 2018 results for this team of hard working athletes and knowledgeable and dedicated staff are outstanding when you look at the bigger picture their culture of success, first started over 20 years, is truly amazing, and worthy to be judged against any of Tasmanians sports teams.
In the past four years this Tasmanian team has won three bronze medals at the Australian Championships, two tournament most valuable players (the 2016 winner was team Captain Bruce Stanley) , the Kim Larkin Fair Play Award and had three Australian national team call ups – Bruce Stanley, Josh Clearly and Dylan Pace, with Clearly and Pace winning bronze medals at international events with the Boomerangs, the Australian National Team.
Team Coach Odette Seabourne was justifiably proud of the team and its achievements. ”What seats us apart from others is the players feel as if we are a family and the actually play for each other and never want to let a family member down.”
