Hillcrest Basketball on Fox and Kayo

Hillcrest Christian College Senior Girls Basketball team will feature in a special seven-episode sports documentary series to be aired on Fox and Kayo supporting a focus on women in sport. The documentary series called The Season enables viewers to follow the journey of Hillcrest Senior Girls as they strive for glory during 2019 and into the 2020 season. The documentary also follows as COVID impacts sports competitions in 2020.

In what is believed to be a first for schoolgirls basketball in Australia, the cameras follow the team for a behind-the-scenes glimpse into the life of our high-performing senior girl’s basketball team as they aim for the ultimate basketball achievements.

Executive Head of College, Mr Jeff Davis, said “I am proud of the students and this documentary highlights in an authentic way the personal journey of our players as both individuals and as a team. The documentary also highlights the role Hillcrest plays in supporting students in their personal interests, their overall wellbeing and ultimately their future pathways.”

The Season is the brainchild of acclaimed producer/director Nick Piper of Onion TV Productions, the creator of other popular sports documentary series such as The Code, Maximus Academy, Beat The Pros and Once Upon A Sport. Onion TV adds Hillcrest Christian College to their female sports catalogue joining the award-nominated series with the Adelaide Thunderbirds Netball Team and Rugby Australia Women’s Sevens Team

All students within the Hillcrest Basketball Program are required to maintain a suitable standard of academic progress and personal integrity while being members of the Basketball Program and the non-scripted, co-funded documentary shows how the girls take on these immense challenges and ride the emotional highs and lows as they lead up to the state and national championships.

The documentary will feature on FOXW, a dedicated woman in sport pop-up channel featuring live women’s sports, documentaries, and specials available to watch on Foxtel and streaming on Kayo. The channel will feature during April showcasing the best in Australian and international women’s elite sport.

Our special thanks to Onion TV, College supporters, students, coaches, staff and our parent community for their dedication to the Hillcrest Basketball Program and for supporting this documentary.
