September 29, 2023 | UC Capitals news

The UC Capitals and Next Step Basketball are excited to continue to work together in 2023/24, today announcing a continued partnership until 2025.

Local basketball equipment and services supplier, Next Step Basketball is a leading service provider of High Performance Basketball Training, Development & Sport Management Solutions for players, coaches, clubs & associations across the ACT, North East Victoria & Southern NSW. They are a proud and active member of the Canberra basketball community.

Next Step has provided the UC Capitals with the Dr Dish for many seasons now, offering the players a training tool for extra shooting sessions.

“The UC Caps Sponsor Family is so much more than leading local and national brands and businesses working with us to drive successful outcomes,” UC Caps General Manager Lucille Bailie said.

“We’re a group of like minded, committed community members with the best outcomes for our people at heart, so it makes great sense that Shane, Narelle and the team behind Next Step Basketball are continuing Caps family members through their valued and long term sponsorship.

We really are Bigger, Better, Together and the UC Caps and Next Step Basketball partnership is proof that a shared love of basketball can drive terrific outcomes!”

Director of Next Step Basketball Shane Lowndes echoed those words, saying “We are excited to have extended and continued to grow our sponsorship of the UC Caps for another 2 seasons.

“The value that we get from the partnership with the UC Capitals organisation is tremendous for us personally and for the people we work with.

“Supporting the UC Capitals Program (both athletes and coaching staff) is important to us as they are a critical aspect of the Elite Basketball Pathway for Women in Canberra.

“We look forward to working ‘together’ with the UC Capitals as they take their ‘next step’ in the 2023/2024 Season.”
