Welcome to Rowville Rockets Basketball Club

Rowville and Lysterfield community based basketball club.
An Open Letter to:

ALL PLAYERS, COACHES, PARENTS & SPECTATORS

The leading cause of referees quitting the game we love is abuse.
Each and every one of you can change that.  As much as abuse is causing referees to quit, respect by all leads to their retention.

Respect = retention = enjoyment for all.

Everyone has a part to play.
 
No Refs = No Play.

Respect the refs on game day.

Congratulations to all participants

in the summer 2021/2022 grand final

About Us

Rowville Basketball Club Inc.

31 Years of community basketball

We have an average of 95 domestic teams entered in summer and winter competitions across the Dandenong and Knox Basketball Associations. We frequently field domestic teams in annual tournaments like Eltham – Dandenong on Australia Day and Nunawading Spectres on the Queen’s Birthday weekend.

Our club is run entirely by a team of volunteers, with over 650 children and young adults playing in all grades of the domestic competitions.

Under 8, 10, 12, 14 & 16 play on Saturday’s and Under 18 & 23 play on Sunday afternoons.

Basketball is played all year round and is broken up into 2 seasons.

Winter season runs terms 2 & 3, Summer season runs terms 4 & 1.

History

Rowville Basketball Club was formed in 1990 to offer the children of Rowville and Lysterfield a local, community based basketball club.

In 1990 we started with 5 teams and grew over the next 9 years to more than 35 teams competing in the Knox Association. In the Summer of 2000, 5 teams began playing at Dandenong with a further 36 teams continuing to play at Knox. 

Over the next 4 years the club continued to enter teams in both associations. Growing to 13 teams at Dandenong and 39 at Knox by 2002. The club continued to grow quickly with 37 teams at Dandenong and roughly the same at Knox by 2004. 

In 2004 the club decided to enter teams solely in one association. The Rockets teams at Knox along with several smaller clubs, merged to form a new club known as ‘Knox Allstars’. In the summer season of 2004/05 Rockets entered 39 teams into the Dandenong Association. 

Due to the continued growth of the club, by 2020, Rockets teams made up to approximately 30% of the competition creating an effect of some grades being dominated by Rockets teams. The club began looking for a solution to help maintain a competitive competition for our players.

The 2020 winter season saw us enter teams into the Knox association again. Unfortunately, the season was cancelled due to the COVID 19 pandemic. Summer 2021 season started late but we were all grateful to be playing again in two associations.  

The ongoing success of the club is a testament to the contribution of its volunteers.
