SEASON: Week 3/4 TERM 1 - WEEK 3/4 TERM 3
Training starts Week 5 Term 1. Students who have registered and any latecomers welcome. Please come prepared with suitable PE clothing, footwear and water bottle.
We have opportunities for basketball for both boys and girls at all levels. This season we have teams playing in the Harbour competitions based at the North Shore Events Centre for players in the under 15, 17 and 19 grades. We also cater for Year 7/8’s who play with the Hibiscus Coast sub association, based at the Stanmore Bay Leisure Centre.
The season starts with a trial and registration process held in the 3rd or 4th week of the week of the school year. Squads are formed and pre season trainings start during term one in the school gyms. The various competitions start in Term two and usually run through until the 3rd or 4th week in Term 3. The senior boys and girls teams compete in our annual interschool exchanges and the Year 7/8’s in the, one day, zone day tournament. All players are expected to train and practise regularly and these sessions are usually after school or perhaps early evenings. Players are responsible for making their own arrangements to get to and from these sessions.
The games are played after school in the late afternoon or evenings on Mondays Wednesdays, Thursdays and Fridays and start times can be anywhere from 4pm to 9pm - all depending on the competition entered and the draw. Students are usually transported to and from games with the assistance of parents car pooling, and/or mini vans driven by staff or parents. Returning from the games the players are dropped off at the front of the school to be collected by parents.
2019 subs were set at $100 for Year 7/8 teams and $220 for U15, 17 & 19 grades.
