Sunshine Coast’s most celebrated basketball club
Founded in 1972, Clippers Basketball has been a haven for players, referees, coaches and volunteers alike. Over the years, we have etched our name as one of the Sunshine Coast’s most celebrated basketball clubs, boasting a national men’s title and nurturing over 120 juniors who have earned places in state representative teams.

Our story began as the Maroochydore Eagles Basketball, one of the founding clubs that shaped the State Basketball League (SBL) in 1986. Evolving through various conferences, including the Southern Cross and QAB, we embarked on a journey of collaboration that ultimately gave rise to the Sunshine Coast Phoenix.

Today, as we stand as Clippers Basketball, we embrace our rich history and the transformative power of change. Our strategic Plan charts a path that blends the essence of our heritage with the opportunities that lie ahead.

As we embark on this journey, we invite every stakeholder–players, coaches, volunteers, sponsors, and supporters–to help shape the future of Clippers Basketball. With your support, we will script a success story that continues through the next 50 years and beyond.
