2020 Tasmania Goverment Budget
Basketball Tasmania welcomes budget announcement of $1M over four years to continue school basketball clinics.
Chris McCoy, Basketball Tasmania CEO stated: “Thanks to the State Government for their ongoing support of basketball and we are particularly pleased to see the continuation of funding with Basketball Tasmania to enable the three NBL1 clubs to deliver the school basketball clinics across the state.
The school basketball clinics provide excellent exposure for our sport with many young boys and girls then flowing into our mainstream competitions. In addition to this, the activity allows excellent brand building in their catchment areas for the Hobart Chargers, Launceston Tornadoes and North West Thunder and these NBL1 clubs provide an important pathway and aspiration for our junior athletes in this state.”
