The Bunbury Basketball Association (BBA) is dedicated to the promotion of the sport of basketball in the Bunbury region for participants of all ages. The Association believes that basketball is a tool to be used in community-building, promoting healthy living, and the empowerment of our youth in a climate of mutual respect and healthy competition.

Becoming a team member of Bunbury Bears Representative Basketball will require extra commitment, and also offers many rewards.

The victories and losses we experience, the friendships we develop, and the lessons we learn stay with us forever. Having the chance to be part of a team and enjoying all the physical, mental, emotional and social benefits that comes with it is a gift that every child deserves to experience.
