Playing basketball gives people with disabilities and disengaged youth an opportunity to develop greater confidence, strength and skills, make new friends, learn about teamwork and, perhaps win a few trophies. The emphasis is on creating a supportive, social, inclusive and fun environment.
The Doncaster All Abilities Basketball (DAAB) competition is one of Australia's most successful basketball programs for people with a disability. Established and run by the local community for two decades, DAAB has grown into a 36 team competition with over 250 plus participants with a championship and 6 other divisions.
The competition is played on Thursday evenings at Mullum Mullum Stadium, 31 Springvale Road, Donvale. Competition is open to people aged 6 years and up.
We are very proud to have sponsorship from Bendigo Bank and assistance from YMCA Manningham.
