Hoopstars Inc is focussed on the development, is a large domestic basketball club located in Carina / Carindale in Brisbane’s south east. The club has always been a member of the Southern Districts Basketball Association (SDBA) during this time, but is active in looking for other competitions in which to compete.

Catering for both boys and girls competitions, teams are fielded in all age groups from Under 7 Biddyball, right through to the Under 30s playing in the various grades of competitions. Many players from the club have progressed through to representative basketball with the Southern Districts Spartans and representing Queensland in the National Championships.

Our emphasis is about playing basketball for fun, building new friendships, learning to play and enjoying the game of basketball and comradery of your team mates.

Most teams have players with a range of skills. We welcome new players who have never played the game before and want to learn what this sport is about. These players will be entered into our Bronze division teams until they can demonstrate, during a game, the skills necessary to move to the next level.


Age groups are determined by the age of the player as on the 31st December. The year you turn the age of your group is the year you move up. For example,

  • a player turning 11 on or before 31st December, in the same year, has to play in the Under 13 age group.
  • a player turning 9 or 10 on or before 31st December, in the same year, has to play in the Under 11 age group.
