The Helios Suns basketball club from Domžale has a long and rich history. It was founded in 1949 and last year celebrated its 65th anniversary. One of the keys to the club’s longevity and development is undoubtedly an enormous connection between the town of Domžale and basketball, which is the most popular sport in this area. Another important factor to be mentioned is also the club’s high-level of organisation and working conditions.

Working with young players has an important role within the club. Currently their coaches work with more than 700 kids in their Basketball School, while more than 200 additional youngsters are active across 11 teams. Their success is proved by two victories in the Slovenian Junior Cup in the last two seasons awarded by the Basketball Federation of Slovenia for the results achieved, the number of participants, and fair play.  Another interesting fact is that the club, alongside Union Olimpija, is the only club in Slovenia that has been participating in the top Slovenian senior basketball league since Slovenia’s independence.
