About Phillip Island Rips

About Phillip Island Rips

Phillip Island Rips is representative level basketball. It is a higher standard than domestic, with different objectives and a higher level of commitment required from both players and parents.

In addition to improved skill development, players will enjoy the experience of working as part of a team over an extended period of time, and playing against varied and challenging opposition, as well as learning from our most experienced local coaches.

There are many other positive outcomes including the social opportunities with other players and families, travelling to other basketball centres, and belonging within a family-friendly, positive environment.

It is expected that players will take pride in representing Phillip Island basketball and work hard to help their team achieve the best results possible.
