SUNS Club Mission

The mission of the Suns Club program is to provide an outstanding opportunity for female players to develop to their maximum potential (physically, mentally and in a team environment) as a basketball player, athlete and person.

SUNS CLUB PARENT SOCIETY

The SUNS Basketball Club is a not- for-profit society governed by a volunteer Board comprised of parents of current and former players.  We currently have 6 active Board Members for the up and coming 2017 season. Ideally we need 10 active board members and several active committees including finance, operations (gym and tournament booking, uniform and equipment management), public relations, sponsorship, marketing, fundraising and website updating.   The board is what keeps the organization running.  If you are interested in joining the board, please Contact Us.  We would love to hear from you :)
