Team App for Magic!
Many of you may be aware of the phone/Ipad App called ‘Team App” available from the App Store/Google Play. Thanks to Scott Brasher, Spirit Magic is now registered on there and this will now compliment our website as the two primary means of club communication from the Winter 2016 season onwards. Put simply, Team App is an easy to use sports club App that allows Magic players & parents to easily access fixtures, news updates and photo’s. There is also a chat module & ‘live score updates’ available for members to use.
Please have a look around and give us some feedback on any suggestions you have to improve its use and functionality. Feedback can be sent to Scott Brasher on firstname.lastname@example.org or call him on 0409 700 250.
First Goal Certificates
Please speak to your Coach/Team Manager if your child scores his/her first goal for the club. They can then provide details to Joe Egan for a first goal certificate which can be collected from the Magic folder in the foyer of the Ringwood Stadium (The Rings) the following week.
Please CONTACT US if you have any further enquiries.

Please open the Presidents Report for further information on our performance and changes within the club.
Spirit Magic 1993 – 2013
The Winter 2013 season marked the 20th anniversary of the founding of the Ringwood Junior Domestic Competition. The competition has since evolved into the Greater Eastern Basketball Conference with three of the founding Ringwood clubs from that original competition still going strong.
One of those clubs, Spirit Magic, celebrated our 20th anniversary as a club with a family night in mid 2013 that saw more than 450 current and former players, coaches and families gather to mark this significant milestone.
During the event, life memberships were awarded for outstanding commitment to the club over many years:
- 17 years as a committee member since 1996, including periods as President, Coaching Coordinator and 10 years as Registration Coordinator
- Long term coach of more than 25 teams over many seasons
- 10 years as a committee member since 2003, including periods as Coaching Coordinator and Team Selection Coordinator
- Long term coach of 35 teams over 15 seasons
- 12 years as Club Treasurer since 2001
Long serving coaches were also recognised for their dedication:
Chris Ayton, Peter Barnard, Joe Egan
James Fox, Paul Hayes, Terry Jones
Tony Kitching, Leon McKenna, Anne McMaster
and Greg Skien
As part of the anniversary celebrations, every current player was presented with a new warm up top to mark their participation in this landmark season.
Spirit Magic currently has almost 300 players in 38 boys, girls and mixed teams in age groups from Under 8 to Under 18, playing in the GEBC every Saturday making it one of the largest clubs in the competition.
