Junior Competition

Wests Basketball fields teams across multiple divisions from U10s to U19s in the Basketball ACT competition each year. All ages, skill level and experience is welcomed. Our aim is to provide a safe and fun environment for players to develop and enjoy this great game.

2022 WINTER  SEASON OPEN:

Junior Premier League (JPL) - 4 March 2022

Junior division 1 - 6 Grading round 1 - 19-20 March 2022

TRIALS

Junior trials will be held February 2022. Players must attend trials for skill and ability to be assessed and ensure appropriate placement in teams. Please register your details to attend the trials - this assists the Club with follow up and contacting you to offer a position to your young player. More information can be found on the Wests Facebook site and the link above.

COACHING

Our junior team coaches and managers are all volunteers who must hold a valid Working with Vulnerable People Card. The safety and welfare of our players is important to us as we assist our young players to achieve and develop their skills and confidence.

 

TRAINING

Teams train once a week at various locations across the Belconnen region including: Kingsford Smith School, AIS Bruce, Canberra High School, Belconnen Basketball Stadium.

Training and game schedules will be released closer to round one. We will not know details until teams are full, nominated and BACT provide the schedule.  You will be contacted by the Club or the team coach when we know the finalised details.

UNIFORMS

Junior Premier League players are required to wear Wests playing shorts, available to order at our uniform page.

All other divisions may play in pocket-less black basketball shorts.

Playing singlets are provided each season but must be returned to the coach or manager at the last game of the season. Fees may be incurred if players fail to return their singlets.
