SPORTS: BASKETBALL Autumn season starts with a fresh, new sense of purpose SOUTHWEST Sydney Filipino Australian Basketball Association (SSFABA) opened its third season at 9am on Saturday, April 7, 2018 at Fairfield Youth and Community Centre. By ALLAN ESPINOSA The autumn tournament features eight teams. SSFABA, a not-for-profit basketball group based in Fairfield, NSW, has embarked on a new project this year by becoming a World Vision sponsor of four children in Cebu, Philippines. The kids will receive access to healthcare, education, values formation and community protection through the sponsorship project. For the SSFABA committee and players, this is a significant moment, according to treasurer Jun Blanas, who spearheaded the initiative that shifted SSFABA's focus from being just a sports group to becoming a civic-minded organisation. “We have to motivate and involve our group into doing something more meaningful than just playing basketball,” says president Romy Tan. “It’s a small but fulfilling gesture; not bad from a group that started playing only social games more than 15 years ago.” n Last year's championship match between the Blue Eagles and Green Sonics at Fairfi eld Community Centre.
