ready to hear the cougars call?

Canterbury Cougars is a family, not-for-profit club, run by volunteers that simply love everything basketball. We offer the opportunity for friends to start their own teams in any age-group from Under 9’s through to Seniors or, join individually and have the opportunity to play at a more competitive grade. With almost 70 teams and 1000+ members in the Hawthorn Basketball Association, we continue to grow and have teams of varying abilities and skills and actively encourage participation from players of all ages. We are also now proud to offer competition opportunities for U16+ players to play on a Sunday in the Waverley Association and Senior teams Monday – Thursday in the HBA comp.

We are focused on offering a well-rounded introduction to basketball, through to representative ready players. Our aim is to help grow player’s self-confidence, through teaching skills, sportsmanship, team play, respect for teammates and referees and a general love of basketball.

We have built a strong community through a family first culture, which develops lifelong friendships, in a fun and social environment. In addition, we continue to provide pathways to representative basketball, with a few players having gone on to represent Australia.
