Hoopstars Inc is a not-for-profit volunteer managed community sports organisation, based in Carina, Queensland. The Club operates in and primarily supports the Southern Districts Basketball Assoc.

Hoopstars does not deliver basketball competitions. Our role is to facilitate the joining of interested players into the competitions that are provided. We provide the selection process for placing players into appropriate teams, coaching, developing and training teams, and entering those teams into SDBA competitions.

With over 450 players and 68 teams across the playing divisions ranging from social to Premier League grades, Hoopstars is one of the major basketball clubs at SDBA.

We cater for both boys and girls. Many players from the club have progressed through to representative basketball with the Southern Districts Spartans and representing Queensland in the National Championships.

Hoopstars is a Development Club

Hoopstars defines itself as a ‘Development’ club, but how does this distinguish us from other clubs?

In short, development is our number one priority above all others. Winning games is important, but it’s not everything. Our aim is to implement a community of growth, inclusiveness and learning for our players and coaches. This starts with our youngest players right the way through to their senior years. The focus on development allows players and coaches to develop their skills and confidence in a safe and inclusive environment.

We are proud of our of what our coaches and players achieve and attempt to implement policies and processes that align with our vision. We welcome anyone seeking to develop their basketball abilities in our club.

Supporting Hoopstars

Hoopstars relies completely on members to assist with running the Club. You can assist by taking up a team coach or team manager position. If we cannot fill all positions at the start of each season, the Club will have the unenviable task of withdrawing teams. If you want to ensure your child enjoys their playing experience with the Club, step in to help out your child’s team and the Club.

You can also assist the Club Committee in managing the Club meeting its member’s expectations. Members look up to the Committee as the managers of the Club’s integrity and viability. If you would like to assist the Committee in undertaking its activities and thus ensuring your child enjoys the benefits of a well run Club, contact a Club Committee member via our contact us page. Your support is greatly welcome and appreciated!
