Seasons follows the school terms, therefore follow the school term dates for Qld and you will have a very good understanding of when the season start and finish. Each season is now considered a Championship season and it is the only season that will plays finals

  • Summer = Term 4 & 1 of school
  • Winter = Terms 2 & 3 of school

For the junior competition, which is the focus of the club, the games are played:

  • U7, U9, U11 and U13 Division 4 & 5 are played Saturday mornings.
  • U13 (Division 1, 2 & 3), U15 & U17 are played on Friday nights.
  • U20 Boys are played Tuesday nights
  • Wednesday Night Youth League is played, well on a Wednesday

At the start of each season the club has no idea when the games times will be. We only find out when the Association issues the draws.

Due to the size of the Southern Districts Basketball Association it has been necessary to incorporate additional venues. You can find the venues utilized by Southern Districts on their website.

Training is held on days and times suit games and volunteer coaches. Training is held at either Belmont State School, Brisbane Bayside State College, Sleeman Sports Complex, Eagles Sports Complex or Clem Jones Basketball Stadium. Information can be found her on our training venue page.

Training times can vary season to season. What may be the training time now will not necessarily be the training time come the new season as various factors effect times. Such as court availability, coach availability and team numbers.

When registration for a new season opens there will be a notice on our Facebook page and website. Existing players will be emailed a link to register.

A team selection policy can be found and read on our website.

New players may be asked to attend a tryout/training session to ensure they are in the correct team for their skill level. If your child is brand new to the sport and they wish to participate in games then they will be entered into lower level team until they acquire the basic skills to operate at the next level.

For younger players Southern Districts offers a Little Spartans Program to assist with teach players the skills to be confident with the basics to play basketball.

We rely on feedback from our coaches as to which players should be moved between the competition levels.

A player must be under the age stated in the relative age group by a certain date in the year of the completion of that season. The date cut offs are 30th April for Summer Seasons and 30th September for Winter Seasons.

For example of the Winter Season, if your child is turning 13 prior to 30th September in the current year then they are required to move to the U15 competition. Insert the Summer Season cut off date for that season.
