Our Mission & Vision
The Generals Basketball Club strives to provide the opportunity for participation for all levels of players in the game of Basketball in Bendigo. Our club is committed to providing a leadership role in the promotion and development of basketball with particular emphasis upon:
- Development of juniors
- Development and support of Coaches and volunteers
- Encouragement and support of excellence
- Promotion of fun, fair and healthy participation
Coaches & Team Managers
All Generals teams should have a Coach and a Team Manager. It is not always possible for the club to supply a Coach so we ask that if any parent who is willing to volunteer their time to coach their child’s team, the club is willing to assist with the cost of Coaching Clinics etc. The Team Manager is usually a parent of a player in the team. Their role is to assist with the collecting of the money from each player each week and make payment for the team through the Teammo app and liaise between the Coach and the Committee. They will be the contact person if a game is forfeited or cancelled. They may also prepare a Scoring Roster for the team or make sure that the team has someone to score for them on a weekly basis. Every team must supply a scorer each week.
Welcome to the Generals Basketball Club Inc. We have been operating since approximately 1976.
We are currently one of the largest and oldest clubs in the the Bendigo Basketball Association.
The Executive Committee, Coaches and Team Managers are volunteers who give up their time to administer the club to keep it a successful and financially viable club.
The Committee also encourages Coaches or Team Managers from each team to attend the Generals Basketball Club Committee Meetings. This is a great way to find out what is going on at the club.
Where we play

Team & Game Payments
Bendigo Basketball has partnered with Teammo for teams to pay for team game fees, submit forfeits and collect money from team members.
For Summer 2023-24 Bendigo Basketball has altered the game fees to $70 per team. This must be paid by the Team Manger through Teammo each week. Failure to remain up to date will result in the team being unable to participate in the competition.
