Bruins Representative Program

To represent Bankstown Bruins Basketball is a privilege not to be taken lightly.  Involvement in our Representative Program not only reflects outstanding individual skills but also implies a sound understanding of the positive philosophies of development, teamwork and sportsmanship.

The Bruins have a long and distinguished record throughout NSW and Australia, and we pride ourselves on the conduct of the Bruins Representative Program and the results that we have achieved over many years.

Throughout the Bruins 50 plus years the association has developed numerous Players, Coaches,  Referees & Officials, who have gone onto not only represent the Bruins, also have made NSW, NBL, WNBL & Australian teams.

It is important that all players and parents read the requirements and expectations of families who enter into the Representative Program.
