THE MIDNIGHT Basketballers will sort out who are the top dogs of their competition tomorrow night, but everyone who has taken to the court over the past seven Friday nights will count themselves winners.
Grafton Midnight Basketball media officer Gary Martin said all 60 participants were looking forward to the grand final.
"Although we have a team that's been the most successful the grand final is still anyone's to win," Mr Martin said.
"All the teams take part in a knockout until we have just the last two teams."
He said Friday night will be run in a similar fashion, except there will be presentations of trophies after the basketball.
"We will start off with a meal, then move to the games at 8pm," he said.
He said Midnight Basketball continues to grow in popularity with the young people in the region.
"It's been a great experience for everyone involved," he said.
"I've really enjoyed the way the kids have come along over the eight weeks.
"The coaches of the teams have done a great job polishing the players' skills.
"And it's been great to see the teamwork developing among them. It's one of the best parts of coming here every Friday, seeing the older kids starting to help the younger ones."
Mr Martin said this year Grafton Midnight Basketball has put together a representative team that will travel to Sydney next week for a national Midnight Basketball competition.
"That's been a great development for us and all the kids are really excited about it," he said.
Midnight Basketball is a nationwide movement to instill positive values in young people by promoting teamwork and cooperation through sport and coaching.
To participate young people sign up for eight Friday nights where they get a good meal, learn some life skills and have a game of basketball, with the activities wrapping up around midnight.
"It's great for the kids because they get a fun night out that's in a totally safe environment," Mr Martin said.
"When they've finished we actually drop the kids home to their houses so we know everyone gets home safely."
