From Humble Beginnings
In the early 1960's, the West Gippsland Basketball Association was formed. The first home of the WGBA, was the Koo Wee Rup picture theatre in the main street of Koo Wee Rup. The undersized court was only used for a few years before moving to the “Bunyip Tin Shed”.
Various skills clinics are held throughout the year by the Bunyip Bulls Basketball Club and coaches in the past have included elite players from the WNBL Dandenong Rangers.
The club has current connections with Latrobe City Energy's men's Big V team and have run clinics with Energy's Big V men's head coach as well as Energy's U.S imports.
The focus at clinics is on skills development with a whole lot of fun thrown in!
