Unfortunately, there is no Australian or State Government or sports association funding available for Deaf Basketball and all players are responsible their costs to achieve their goal to represent Australia. In the last 6 years, each men’s team representative has contributed over $30,000 personally in order to be able to achieve their dreams and now need to come up with more funds to get the squad to the 2019 Asia Pacific Deaf Games.


“The final goal for myself and the team is to defend our Asia Pacific Champions title at the 2019 Asia Pacific Deaf Games in Hong Kong and to reflect back on all the sacrifices that we have made together.”
- Sam Cartledge on behalf of the Goannas.
