Junior Club Competition 


Our Junior Club Competition consists of over 200 teams and is conducted on Friday night and throughout Saturday (which day depends on age group). Our competition caters for age groups Under 8 through to Under 19. 

(we also have Under 8 - see SS Pirateball)


There are two seasons conducted each year, the first during school Terms 1 & 2 while the second is during terms 3 & 4. Season 1 for 2023 commences on February 3/4 - a full 2023 season calendar can be found here.

Players need to join an affiliated club to participate in our competition. We also have school-based clubs enter into our competitions. Each player must have a valid South West Metro and Basketball Queensland registration paid for each season (completed online via Basketball Connect).

We suggest new players should contact the club from the list below closest to their area. However, you do not need to live in the suburb to participate in the club you choose.

New players are welcome to join at anytime during the season (subject to eligibility rules, while restrictions for finals may also apply).

When choosing the organisation to register with on Basketball Connect for each season, please ensure you choose the club you are playing for, DO NOT select South West Metro (e.g. if you are playing for Algester, choose Algester Hawks from the dropdown menu).  Make sure you have also touched base with the club first to ensure they have space for you for the upcoming season.

*The South West Metro fee is payable for each season & competition you register to play in.

*The BQ Registration lasts for 365-days and applies to all competitions you play in. If it expires during the season of a competition you are registering for, you will be prompted to renew and pay for it.

Any player wishing to change clubs for an upcoming season must have a transfer completed from their previous club prior to doing so. The transfer form can be downloaded here.

Transfers cannot be done mid-season, only between seasons (bar very few extenuating circumstances). Once a player has played on game for a club, which incudes grading, they are locked to that club for the remainder of the season.
