The Tasmania Bloodlines Group is an initiative started by Head Coach Scott Roth, to celebrate and honour the rich history of basketball in Tasmania and recognise the people that have significantly contributed to the past and ongoing success of the sport in the State.

In creating the strong culture of the Tasmania JackJumpers in its infancy, Roth recognised the need to connect the history of Tasmanian basketball with the future and pay homage to those that have come before the current playing and coaching group.

There are currently 19 Bloodlines members including past and present players, coaches, referees, and key administrators from all parts of the State. They embody the JackJumpers’ vision to be the team for all Tasmania.
