The Ivor Burge programs gives athletes with an intellectual disability the opportunity to participate in Basketball and represent Tasmania at the National Ivor Burge Championships, held in conjunction with the U20 Footlocker National Championships (usually is early February each year).
Trials are usually held from September through to December each year with opportunities in each region for players to get involved.
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 sets 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.”
