Boomers land in Gippsland for another two years

The Latrobe Valley Authority is pleased to support the Deakin Melbourne Boomers’ commitment to visiting Gippsland basketball courts, schools and communities for another two years.

During a three-year partnership with the Latrobe Valley Authority, the Boomers have maintained regular visits to the region including their annual Triple Crown tournament, skill development workshops for players, coaches and clubs, and a visit to East Gippsland communities impacted by bushfires.

The partnership is helping to build local capacity, increase participation, and strengthen pathways for those wanting to pursue basketball professionally, with the Boomers now continuing to deliver activities and programs in the region over the next two years.

A key attraction is the coaching program which provides local coaches with access to Boomers’ head coach Guy Molloy as well as Assistant Coaches Larissa Anderson and Paul Flynn.

“We’re pleased to extend our partnership with the Deakin Melbourne Boomers to ensure Gippsland locals continue to benefit from high-profile events, workshops and community activations," said Latrobe Valley Authority CEO Karen Cain. 

“The Boomers have built a strong connection with Gippsland communities, and it’s very exciting news that the Boomers will continue to visit the region over the next two years for major tournaments, skill development workshops and school clinics.”

The Latrobe Valley Authority’s $85 million Sports and Community Initiative is delivering world-class sporting infrastructure and bringing major sporting events and community activations to the Gippsland region.
