BMBA 2020 Term One Registrations now open

Are you looking for better basketball coaching for your son or daughter?

Most juniors playing basketball simply don't receive proper coaching in the fundamentals of the game and never realise their true potential or obtain the most enjoyment possible that they can through the sport.

Well the BMBA wants to change all that. Register your child for high quality training and coaching well above what they will receive through their domestic or rep teams. All players are welcome to join, for more information and to register ....... Click Here
Fit For Life Fitness Studio

The first thing you notice when you walk past the Fit for Life fitness studio in Sandringham is its location. Across the road from the Sandringham Hotel and meters from the beach this is a great bit of commercial real estate and even more, importantly would provide an array of options for physical activity.

This was one of the things that attracted Vic Currie, the studio’s business owner and head trainer to go into business for himself ten years ago........... Read more

Opinion
100 years on, is there a conversation to be had?

"Though shall not grow old".
 
How often have we heard these words in the poem written by English poet Robert Laurence Binyon? Now it's the title of a new documentary, produced by Peter Jackson that is available through Netflix which I watched while all of the Extinction Rebellion nonsense was happening.
 
The film starts by showing young men rushing to recruitment offices to join up for what they saw as the "Great Adventure".
