Demons Constitution
DEMONS – Basketball Club originated in 1962/63 which makes it the oldest existing Club in the WBA competition. Demons red & blue colour scheme relates to its original relationship with South Whyalla Football club.

Initially Demons started with just 1 men’s team. Most of their players came from rebels basketball club which consisted mainly of BHP apprentices.
The first female Demons team competed in 1967/68.

In 1997 Darren Hoffmann Demons longest serving president was elected.
Demons gradually grew to become the associations largest ever club. Peaking at 50 teams in 2015 before undergoing a conscious down size to be more manageable.

Despite their longevity Demons men have a poor success rate at the highest level winning just a couple of MA flags.

In 2014 Led by Chad McLean and Michael Wallace Demons come from an unlikely 4th position to steal a MA premiership in From Sharks breaking a 30 year drought.

Alan Wanganeen was the clubs 1st MA MVP winner in 1972 while stalwart John Lydeamore won 10 MVP awards(over many grades) in his 40 year career.

Demons Women A graders have won numerous WA titles particularly since 1997 when Led by Coach Debbie Cole then later long term coach Chris Hnarakis. Some significant female players are, Heather Haskel (70’s), Carly Maher(00’s) & Samantha Vigar(10), Stringer Jorja Eldridge in the(2019) all won multiple WA MVP awards for Demons.

Keys names in this clubs administrative past: Dolcie Cheeson in the 70’s, Barb Liddle in the 80’s, Janice Eygenraam in the 90’s followed by Darren Hoffmann in the & 00’s- 20’s.

FUN FACT

Sports voucher's have been approved. I am processing refunds now.
Good news is SA vouchers has approved full refund of $100 to all members, even if fees are less than that amount. It has been agreed the cost of family entry and Uniforms etc will absorb the full amount.

Are sports vouchers able to be used for the next season if we haven’t already made a claim? I didn’t think I’d be able to apply after paying the winter fees. Thanks
