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
In 2016 Demons revamped their image adopting the stylised devils fork/spear as their motif. This logo was emblazoned on new reversible uniforms for all their members. Demons were the first club in the WBA to adopt this modern reversible concept.
