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. (For more info about Under 8's 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. 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).

Any new player seeking to play in our competition should contact a 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 almost anytime during the season (subject to availability and eligibility rules).

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.
