The Bendigo Stadium Redevelopment – new pictures.

Recently we featured the opening of the Bendigo Stadium’s new show court – the premium sports arena in Central Victoria.

_BRI9182

Nellakir are proud to have built the new premium sports flooring surface (Sprung Timber Sports Flooring by ASF Horner Sports Floors) in collaboration with the appointed builder Fairbrother Pty Ltd. The new court and surface are of a standard to permit NBL games to be played on the FIBA (Federation of International Basketball Associations) approved surface.

_BRI9126

The first game was played there on the new court in June. It was a women’s Basketball match between the Bendigo Braves and the Sandringham Sabres. The Braves won by 32 points.

The Bendigo Stadium is a major asset of the greater City of Bendigo and the ideal venue to host major sporting and entertainment events.

Facilities include 7 indoor sports courts, major exhibition and function areas, a licensed clubroom and associated administration facilities.

The Stadium has the flexibility to be used for major sporting, cultural or entertainment events.

The Bendigo Stadium attracts 10,000 patrons each week for major sports events, concerts, dinners, conventions, trade shows and special events.

It operates as a sports venue for regular competitions and as a licensed club catering for 6000 members.

Is this Basketball? The Phillipines – Basketbrawl

basketball-brawl-main-740x357

The Boomers vs The Phillipines turned into a farce, albeit a very dangerous farce in the game between Australia and the Phillipines in Manila on Monday. The game was abandoned and it is expected that FIBA, the world Basketball Organisation, will come down hard on the protagonists. Chairs were thrown and one Australian player – the smallest – Nathan Sobey had over 12 players and officials punching and kicking him. Boomers Assistant Coach Luc Longley rescued both he and Chris Goulding from the assault – which he lays squarely at the feet of the Phillipines Coach – Chot Reyes.

“I do believe Chot Reyes incited them to do that” said Longley

Back here in Australia, Nellakir are preparing our competition playing surfaces for the next generation of Australian champions. (There is some doubt as to whether the Australian team might venture back to the Phillipines any time soon)

Currently the Nellakir team are doing a strong round of annual maintenance projects in the school holiday period.

At Beaconsfield, St Francis Xavier’s Secondary College, where Nellakir recently finished construction of a flood damaged full size court, ensuring the school has virtually two brand new courts at the start of the new term.

It is also carrying out another re-sanding job at Berrindale School in Hampton. A small multi-purpose Gymnasium style area is being fully refreshed and refurbished.

  • Vermont Primary School
  • Preston North Primary School
  • Cambridge Primary School
  • Westmont Secondary School (Hastings)
  • Parklands Secondary School (Mill Park)
  • St Albans Secondary School (St Albans)

School Holidays – Perfect for Court Maintenance

With the School Holidays currently upon us it’s timely to consider cyclical maintenance of your sprung timber sports flooring, by Nellakir the premier supplier of quality sports flooring in Victoria and Tasmania.

Whether it’s re-coating, re-sanding or re-marking of court lines, Nellakir will schedule your required maintenance during the term 2 holidays from the 30th of June to the 15th of July, providing a full premium service that ensures the best possible surface upon the commencement of Term 3.

With many school courts now doubling as Community facilities, wear and tear on the timber surface is much higher with constant use. Many such courts constructed under the State Government’s PPP programs (Public Private Partnerships) see usage day and night, 7 days per week with Basketball, Netball, Badminton, Volleyball and gymnastics all utilising this premium sport flooring. Competitions range from school to Junior, Adult and Veteran formats with local leagues embracing the new facilities with enthusiasm.

Maintenance programs include re-surfacing of existing sprung timber floors in stadiums, halls and gymnasiums as well as timber flooring in churches and community centres.

Re-coating should occur every 12 months and periodically it will be necessary to re-sand floors, then re-coat and provide new line marking.

competition-basketball-court-sports-floor

Grip is the most important factor with Timber Sports Flooring. Re-coating maintains this grip and is aesthetically pleasing. Re-sanding is required within 7–12 years. It removes buildups that occur due to re-coating and returns the floor to its original state.

Ultimately there comes a time when the flooring itself will require replacement. Nellakir use the proprietary sports flooring system of ASF Horner, a tried and true system used widely throughout Australia on Competition Sports Flooring in major stadiums nationally.

Fast Break Drills for Youth Basketball

Are you looking for drills that will help your youth basketball team get out in transition and score more points on the fast break? Then you’ll love these two practice ideas.

The first one is called the “Celtics Layup Drill”, and it trains your kids to pass accurately and finish at high speed in a full court setting. It’s also excellent for keeping your youth basketball team in top physical condition.

The second drill is called “Triangle Breakout” – this one focuses on boxing out after the shot goes up, then quickly transitioning from defense to offense. If you enjoy these drills, make sure you download the Fast Break Domination eBook today.

Boston Celtic Passing Drill:

This drill is run with two group of players simultaneously moving down the court, one on each side of the court and going towards opposite baskets (see the diagram below).

bostoncelticdrill1

To start, there will be a player in each corner, a player under each basket with a ball, and a player standing on each side of the center circle. This is a passing drill that will start with the player under each basket and wind-up with that player making a layup at the opposite end of the floor.

The players under each basket will begin the drill by passing to the right corner. That player will sprint up the floor and receive a pass back. The next pass will go to half court. The player will continue to sprint up the floor and receive the pass back. The next pass is to the other corner (on the other end of the floor). The player will receive the ball back and make a layup. That player will then go to the corner to the left.

After each pass, the player making the pass should move to the next spot on the floor. So the player in the right corner will go to half court, the player at half court will go to the corner, and the player in the corner will get the rebound from the layup and then begin the drill all over again by passing to the right corner and sprinting up the floor.

Coaching Points:

The coach should look for crisp and accurate chest passes. He should also see the player going through the drill running hard and finishing hard with a layup. The players on each spot should pass the ball back so that the player running the floor doesn’t have to break stride.

Basketball Transition Drill: Triangle Breakout

To start, three offensive players and three defensive players set-up in a triangle under the basket. Two other defensive players stand on each wing. See the diagram below.

trianglebreakoutbasketballdrill

To initiate the drill, the coach will take the shot. When the shot is taken, the defensive players must box out the offensive players. Once a defender grabs the rebound, that player must make an outlet pass to one of the players on the wing. The offensive players should contest the outlet pass. If the defense doesn’t grab the rebound or successfully make an outlet pass, then the ball goes back to the coach for another shot.
Once the outlet pass is made, all five players (the three in the triangle under the basket and the two outlet players) break up court and run a play. Once the play is completed, the drill is run again.

Coaching Points:

The coach should make sure the defensive players find a man and successfully box that man out. Players should go up strong for the rebound. Then a crisp outlet pass should be made.

The defensive players should be vocal, yelling out “Shot” and “Box Out” when the shot goes up. When they secure the rebound, the rebounder should yell “Ball” and the outlet man should yell “Outlet!” to receive the pass and begin the fast break.

Times have changed. No longer do kids have to play the game on an uneven and risky asphalt court. The Government has constructed a purpose built, multi-discipline sports stadium at your school with a fabulous sprung timber sports floor. It ensures the very best surface for premium competition and is well used during school hours. After hours it is extremely popular with local basketball, netball and volleyball competitions. In essence it is a popular facility. Weekends see adult competitions and junior grades all enjoying the games of the hoop.

Which all makes for real wear and tear – timber is a ‘living’ material. It requires regular treatment so ensure it maintains bounce and surface regularity. Line markings probably need re-doing on a busy court at least once a year. The surface of the court has a specialist coating of polyurethanes that enable the glide, the speed and reliability players depend upon in all levels of competition. On busy court surfaces this needs re-coating annually.

Nellakir has constructed and laid down many of the better known Basketball Stadium floors, including the State Basketball Centre in Knoxfield, the Casey Stadium in Dandenong, Eagle Stadium in Werribee and are currently completing works on the Bendigo Stadium. As well, Nellakir constructed the feature sprung timber courts at the State Netball Centre in Royal Park.
