Our Basketball Programs
The Mordy Flyers Basketball Club is a great place to learn new skills, make great friends, have heaps of fun and be part of a great community. The club is run by a group of dedicated and passionate parents who volunteer their time and skills. Mordy Flyers has been part of the local Kingston community since the 1970’s.
Teams begin at under 9 years through to under 20 years category. We play as part of the Southern Basketball Association competition, based at Tulip Street in Sandringham.
While playing basketball, our kids successfully develop team spirit, co-ordination, health, fitness and leadership skills.

Coaching: Coaching is a great way to be involved in your child’s sport. You do not have to have played yourself. We can provide support and training tips for anyone interested.
The teams need plenty of help at the time your child is playing. You can assist with scoring, rosters and other team manager duties. Talk to the office or the coach if you are keen to support your team and club.

To ensure the safety and well-being of ALL children, IT IS IMPERATIVE the following procedures are followed:
When dropping off a child at the facility the person/s responsible for the child must ensure that the coach is made aware of the child’s presence before leaving the facility. Please DO NOT leave your child unattended prior to training commencing, the doors open at 3.55pm and not before.
Children must be collected by the finishing time of the class. Staff will need to be notified if the person collecting the child is to be later than usual. The child will be notified to avoid any anxiety. If someone other than usual will be picking up your child, please notify the office or teacher beforehand.
As we have a very busy car park please ensure you collect your child from inside the centre. Children under 12 years
will not be permitted to leave the centre without adult supervision.
