Volunteer Group

Volunteers and community involvement lie at the very heart of Southern Districts Basketball Association being a truly successful sporting organisation. Southern Districts Basketball Association relies heavily on volunteers; and we believe that volunteers are integral to the staging of our sport events from juniors up to NBL1. Volunteers offer a wide knowledge base and a range of skills to assist with tasks such as running competitions, liaising with visiting teams, working with media, and providing services for athletes, sponsors, spectators and other organisations associated with out sport event. Volunteers contribute to the success of our events, by providing much needed legal or accounting advice, marketing assistance and hospitality and catering management services. Volunteers give their knowledge, skills and experience which is a great source of economic value in support of Southern Districts Basketball Association.

Become a Spartans Volunteer and contribute to the ongoing success of our Association. You can volunteer as little or as much as you wish. Depending on your area of involvement, you may be required to have a current blue card. Send an email to for more information.
