The Victorian State-Wide Aboriginal Basketball Classic hosted by the VACSAL Organising Committee is already a great success.
Hosted in the city of Shepparton with a large population of aboriginal peoples and organisations.
Historically there were eight tribes that occupied what is now known as Greater Shepparton, consisting of the Yorta Yorta, Bangerang, Kalitheban, Wollithiga, Moira, Ulupna, Kwat Kwat, Yalaba Yalaba and Nguaria-iiliam-wurrung clans, all of which spoke the Yorta Yorta language.
This labour weekend competition is also about connecting with families and friends.
The Tournament is for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander community to come together and compete for the basketball title of State Champions.
