MLBC Lakers is a community club that is dedicated to ensuring that every child has the chance to play basketball. The season fees are as low as we can make them, to cover gym hire, trophies and coaches equipment.
The Mt Lilydale Basketball Club was founded in 1997 by a group of teachers who ran the program, volunteering their time coaching a few teams playing in an after school competition, at the Mount Lilydale Mercy College.
In 1998 the club was incorporated, with a parent committee taking over the day to day running of the club. By 2004 MLBC had grown to 22 teams, with both girls and boys enjoying the friendship, fun and fitness basketball brings. At MLBC we love to see children of all ages developing new skills, whilst learning to be a team player.
Currently, we field teams from Miniball (U7) to Under 21. The 2017 Winter Season numbers were good, with 50 teams taking the court in the Blue & Gold Lakers colours.
MLBC Lakers are run by a devoted group of volunteers. Some of us are parents of players, parents of past players and even past players. It is a great club to be involved with, as our growing numbers prove.
Where do we train? Who trains our kids?
All team training is held in the Doyle Centre at Mount Lilydale Mercy College. One easy venue.
Many of the MLBC family have children attending MLMC or one of the feeder primary schools in the area, so our ties to our heritage are strong. Our coaches, over 18 yrs, all must have Working with Children cards, and we offer clinics/courses for our coaches when they are available. We also have many junior coaches who donate their time to give back to the club.
Live it, Love it. Lakers
See you on the court!
