The Friday night basketball seasons runs in Term 1, 3 & 4 each year.
The term 1 season is a round-robin competition, with the intention of allowing students to try basketball, and for coaches, to assess the abilities/development of the players in advance of preparing for the competition rounds at the end of the year.
In Term 3 & 4 the competitive competition held. This will see all students trialling for teams based on ability.
Term 1 and Terms 3/4 competitions are separate - some may choose to enter Term 1, but not Term 3/4, for example.
Keep an eye on the newsletter and emails from Jen for information on how to register.
