Summer Junior Comp

WE are now taking nominations for 2020/21 Summer Junior Competitions.

These are open to school teams, club teams, and anyone who wants to play basketball, so get a team together and join the summer fun.

Basketball is the greatest team sport for developing fine motor skills which will improve your performance in many other sports.

The Summer Junior Comp offers boys’ and girls’ divisions in Under-11, Under-13, Under-15 and Under-17 age groups. Cost is only $150 per player and includes 3 FREE Saturday Skills Sessions (dates to be confirmed).
