STEELERS

WHYALLA STEELERS 

The Whyalla Steelers are the representative arm of the Whyalla basketball Association.  Teams from U10-s to U18’s compete under the Steelers banner in junior carnivals around the state Starting in October each year and concluding with the SA Country State championships held in Adelaide in March.
The Steelers are run by a subcommittee of the WBA.  Their mandate is to make Whaylla the best country association in the State by developing local players and coaches thru a structured training program.

Tiered junior development programs are implemented with a goal of propelling local talent to achieve their full potential.  This ultimately leads to State and National team selection.

Whyalla’s Senior representative teams also compete under the Steelers banner.

 

Whyalla’s representative basketball teams have been competing under the steelers banner since the 70’s.

In the Early 90’s a ground swell of interest resulted in strong Steelers focused committee being formed with a drive to get a regular Whyalla carnival on the local calendar.

In 1995 Keith Schroeder, Rob Walton, Noel Sharp(and many others) achieved this goal holding a very successful local event with towns from right across the state competing.

Whyalla has consistently held a local Junior carnival every year since.

FUN FACT

In the early 90’s “Steelers” became the “Stealers” in a move away from our steel heritage to a play on basketball terminology. In 2011 the committee purchased new uniforms and decided to revert back the traditional spelling.
