Welcome to Saxby's Stadium.

The home of Taree Basketball Association Inc promoting enthusiasm for basketball and emphasizing skill development and fun for school students and enjoyable participation for adults.

Positive attitudes and conduct make sport enjoyable for everyone. Some people can ruin the experience with poor behaviour.

This can include things like undue pressure, abuse, taunting, poor sportsmanship, foul language, harassment, bullying, victimisation and more. It can be verbal, written, physical or emotional.

Poor behaviour can occur in many places – during play, on the sidelines, at training, in the clubhouse or outside of the sporting arena.

It can be coaches, players, parents, spectators, officials or administrators who behave poorly. Any one of these people, children or adults, can be the victim of poor conduct too.

Taree Basketball Association Inc proactively supports “Play By The Rules “

“Play by the Rules” is a unique collaboration between the Australian Sports Commission, Australian Human Rights Commission, all state and territory departments of sport and recreation, all state and territory anti-discrimination and human rights agencies, the Office of the Children’s Guardian (NSW), the Australian New Zealand Sports Law Association (ANZSLA) and the Anti-Discrimination Board of NSW. These partners promote Play by the Rules through their networks, along with their own child safety, anti-discrimination and inclusion programs.
