The Goulburn Basketball Association and the Goulburn Soldiers Club have joined forces for the 2021 basketball season.
The association is going very strongly, with record numbers currently taking part in the senior competitions of their winter competition.
The strength of the local basketball community continues to grow and develop with dedicated volunteers and a supportive basketball community.
A $3,000 sponsorship package recently signed between the two parties will allow the Goulburn Basketball Association to subsidise the fees for their players.

Goulburn Basketball Association president Mark White said the partnership would be extremely beneficial moving forward.
"We are very proud to have the Goulburn Soldiers on board for the 2021 season," Mr White said.
"We rely on sponsorships to maintain the stability of our finances".
Sporting sponsorships play a major role in bringing opportunity for businesses and the sporting communities and is invaluable.
Soldiers Club promotions and loyalty coordinator Emma McColl said their support would benefit young people in the community to participate in sport and would provide additional resources to assist in keeping participation costs affordable to players.
"We have always had a strong relationship with sporting communities in Goulburn and we are always willing to do what we can to help," Ms McColl said.
"We take great pride in knowing that the generosity of the club is assisting in the development of local sports within the community and we love seeing these groups grow over the years.
"Our assistance with local sports is not slowing down anytime soon and we hope to continue supporting sporting teams for many years to come."
The Goulburn Soldiers club takes great pride in its involvement with local sports and its relationship with the sporting bodies and will continue to do so in the future.
This is the second partnership the Soldiers Club has started with a local sporting organisation this year.
They were announced as the Goulburn District Race Club's major partner back in February.
