Sponsorship Opportunities

The MRBA works closely with a number of local businesses and organisations to achieve excellent results in our sponsorship packages.

During this critical period of growth, we are seeking sponsors to help us achieve our strategic goals. 

Current Programs

There are over 1,000 junior basketballers playing in the Macedon Ranges.

The MRBA actively fosters participation, development, and representative opportunities for young athletes across multiple programs, including:

Development:

Specialised training sessions focused on fundamental skills and tactics.

• Aussie Hoops — 6 to 8 year olds

Domestic:

Aimed at encouraging young basketballers to have fun and develop their skills through regular training and friendly matches within their age groups.

• U10 – U18 Junior Domestic Competition

• Open Age Senior Domestic Competition

Representative:

Opportunities for players to showcase their abilities and compete against athletes across the state, with the potential to progress further in their basketball journey.

• Victorian Junior Basketball League (VJBL)

• Country Basketball League (CBL)

• Victorian Country Basketball Championships

We also provide opportunities for players to prepare for tryouts for various state and regional-based representative teams by holding preparation training sessions.

Our Challenges:

  1. The MRBA is a volunteer-based association with no paid personnel across the committee, program administration and team management functions. We have however been able to fund a part-time Director of Coaching which will greatly benefit our athletes and coaches.

  2. To qualify for the upcoming Victorian Country Basketball Championships, the MRBA must run a junior domestic competition in all age groups which is challenging with limited administration resources and court space. 

  3. Basketball is an expensive sport with uniforms, a year-round commitment and additional costs associated with representative selection.

 

In order to mitigate some of these challenges, we are seeking the support of regional businesses to get on board with one of our Basketball Partnership Packages.

Benefits to you:

Sponsoring the MRBA allows your organisation to promote you, your brand, your products and your services to our members, their families and the wider basketball community when we travel across Victoria competing in competitions and tournaments.

Specifically, sponsorship of the MRBA will provide your business with:

  • Flexible sponsorship options for small medium and large businesses

  • Access to members across the broader MRBA community

  • Branding exposure through digital and email communications

  • Direct marketing opportunities to promote your business including curated digital assets, content & signage

  • Community Engagement: Help local kids stay active, improve social skills and mental health
