It is with great sadness that we inform you that Klaas Froling passed away in the evening of Saturday 18th April 2020.

A former President to the Association (1992-1996), Klass was a man larger than life.

He didn’t have any basketball background when his girls started playing representative basketball at Frankston, but he went on to play domestically at FDBA, coach numerous Frankston Bears teams, was a referee for many years. He was also court announcer for the SEABL/CBA teams for years with his memorable big booming voice.

Klaas was instrumental in getting the stadium expanded from the 2 to 6 courts in 1992. This was after rejoining the board, under Frankston City Council’s request because they had worked with and respected him.

Rest In Peace Klaas
