It is with great pleasure to announce that Knox Basketball has been selected as a foundation licence holder of the new Basketball Victoria Elite League for 2019 and 2020.

This new league replaces the South East Australian Basketball League (SEABL) and is the next stepping stone for our young players coming through to play in the WNBL or NBL. 

After an extensive and detailed application process, only 18 associations were granted licences including Hobart, Launceston, Albury Wodonga and the COE.

Acting CEO of Knox Basketball says “I am very proud of this achievement and wish to thank my team for all their hard work and assistance, in what was a wonderful team effort.” 

“We are excited to have the newly appointed Zoe Carr leading our women and Darryl McDonald once again leading our men.“

“Knox is committed to being extremely competitive in this new league, and now the real work begins. Good luck to both coaches and to Gerard Leonard our Basketball Development Manager, who are working hard behind the scenes to make sure Knox is a driving force.“

“Being part of this new elite league will be crucial in providing all our young domestic and representative players with the hope and aspirations that they too may play for Knox in Seniors, and pull on the Knox jersey.”

“We are very much looking forward to re-igniting our friendly rivalry with Kilsyth Cobras, with our first meeting together to be massive – bring back The Ashes Cup”.
