Games are 4 x 10 minutes per quarters with running clock. Under 10's is mixed teams.


Training - Players are expected to attend weekly training sessions. Basketballs – each player is

required to bring a basketball to training. These can be purchased from any sports store or
Kmart/Big W. Basketballs can range from $5 to well over $100.
For starters, we find $5-$10 rubber basketballs are the best as they bounce well and can be left outside without too much damage. Some cheaper imitation leather ones can get heavy and stop bouncing. There are three different size basketballs used in our competition.
Size 5 – Under 7
Size 6 – Under 9 – 13 Girls & Boys, u15+ Girls
Size 7 – u17+ Boys
