History

Australian Indigenous Basketball (AIB) acknowledges the people who contributed over a long period of time, and those who still contribute to the advancement of Indigenous basketball in Australia today.

As an organisation, our AIB story began in 2014, when a select group of Aboriginal & Torres Strait Islander hoopers from around the nation came together & first established the AIB All Stars for the inaugural Trans-Tasman Basketball Series played against the New Zealand Maori National Team in Wellington.

Following this history-making event, AIB continued to grow both its profile and membership through the success of the AIB All Stars in 2015 & 2016.

With forward thinking, a proposed resolution to become an incorporated association was passed unanimously by AIB members at a General Meeting held on 26 January 2017.

AIB officially became incorporated by the Office of Fair Trading on 3 February 2017 under the Associations Incorporation Act 1981.
