What is Rep Basketball?

Are you interested in joining a Family Club and have the opportunity to represent Altona against other high quality Associations under the umbrella of Basketball Victoria.

Representative Basketball gives you the opportunity to compete against other Metro and Regional Associations ‘Victorian Championship’ is the highest standard of basketball you can achieve in Victoria at a junior level. All teams are graded according to their ability and are more than competitive in their respective grades. The Altona Gators Championship program is managed by Program Director Randy Shanklin and Program Coordinator Marie Costello.


U12 – 16 players trying out for the Gators must be playing in a junior domestic team within the Altona Bay Basketball Association. If your child is not playing in an Altona Basketball League (ABL) Junior team, they are required to do so as soon as possible as it will affect their eligibility to play Gators. (see Program illegality form for further information)


As with all sporting Clubs & organisation, they only survive with the hard work and effort of the many, many volunteers that work tirelessly behind the scenes. The Gators are no different, from assisting with the newsletter, the website, the local media or sponsorship, fundraising, planning a social event, assisting with the uniforms or the taking of fees. What ever time you have, the Gators would be happy for you to help out and best of all, it’s a great way to meet other people and start new friendships. Remember, its not all just  about the kids!
