Hawthorn referee wins Basketball Victoria Award.

Congratulations to Hawthorn referee Darcy Williams, who was selected as the VJBL referee of the year for 2023! This award is recognition of an incredible season for Darcy. He was selected to officiate: U16s Australian Junior Championships (Boys Bronze Medal), U18s National Junior Classic (Boys Gold Medal), Big V Youth Championship Men Grand Final, VJBL Under 18 Boys VC Grand Final, AGSV Boys Grand Final and Champions Cup U20 Boys Grand Final. Darcy was also awarded his Level 3 referee accreditation by Basketball Victoria during the year. He has represented himself and Hawthorn brilliantly and we couldn't be more proud. Congratulations Darcy! He will also be representing us as a referee coach in the participation division at the National Schools Championships.
A huge thank you to @jesswilsonkew for showing her support to the Hawthorn Magic, and @tandermcdonalds on #mchappyday!

The Hawthorn Magic are at @tandermcdonalds  Balwyn for McHappy Day! Come down and shoot some hoops.

#mchappyday #magicfamily

As McHappy Day is this Saturday, we'd love to see as many Hawthorn Magic players come down  to either the Hawthorn or Balwyn stores to support a wonderful charity.

At Balwyn there will be a Mini Maccas Hoop for kids to test their skills in the playground so come and join in between 11am and 1pm.

Lou and the team are wonderful supporters of our club so lets give back to the community and show how much we appreciate them.

Our Hawthorn Magic VJBL U12 Boys are reaching new heights this season!

Our 70 U12 Boys had a pizza night last night, after training in their favourite NBA jersey. They cannot wait for the official season to start!

That's a wrap at the Southern Peninsula Tournament. Teams have bonded, game-plans are ready, let's go Grading Phase One!

#magicfamily #ballismagic #magichappenshere
Our Hawthorn Magic VJBL teams had their first full day of the Southern Peninsula Tournament today. Check out some snaps from around the Peninsula!

#magicfamily #ballismagic #magichappenshere
At 11:00am today, the entire Southern Peninsula Tournament paused their play, and held a minute of silence to acknowledge those who died while serving in wars, conflicts and peacekeeping operations. Credit to the Southern Peninsula Sharks, who ensured that this important moment was recognised.
The Southern Peninsula Tournament tipped off last night! Our U12 Girls 1 are pictured, before their first game this morning.

Make sure to send through your photos and videos, we would love to show everybody how much fun Hawthorn Magic teams are having!

To support this wonderful charity and our generous sponsor (Hawthorn & Balwyn) McDonalds, we are looking for volunteers to help on Saturday 18th November 2023.

We are looking for:
* Someone do face painting at Hawthorn and the Balwyn store for a gold coin donation.
* Someone to set up a kids basketball ring in the Balwyn playground for a ‘Maccas Hoop Time ‘ challenge for little children.
* Tin Rattlers at both stores wearing your basketball uniform rattling for donations.

If you are able to spare some time out of your day to raise money for a good cause, please email me on operations@hawthornmagic.com.au.
We are looking for volunteers in various roles & skill sets, and no prior experience is necessary. Whether you are a basketball enthusiast, a parent of one of our players, or just someone who wants to make a difference, we have a place for you in the Magic team. Some of the skill sets / roles we are looking for include (but not limited to):

Event Operations: Organisers assisting with planning and executing club events, fundraisers and other activities.
