The Sandringham Sabres and Basketball Victoria hosted a day of basketball and friendship on Wednesday 2nd March, 2011. The day included players from visiting US naval vessel USS Shoup, Sandringham Sabres, Culturally and Linguistically Diverse (CALD)players and girls from Mentone Mustangs. There was a combined a skills session with a tightly contested pick-up game, an example community ties between Australia and America.
The USS Shoup sailed into Melbourne for a Basketball clinic at Sandringham Sabres Basketball Club. Many ages, men and woman and CALD communites had the chance to practice, play and hang strengthening community and national ties.
