The season will conclude with Grand Finals on 23/25 September (note: no games during school holidays or the week before Queens Birthday long weekend)

Newcastle Basketball and the clubs are working on setting up the registration process, and will be providing  more information in the coming weeks which we will then share with you. We are also working on securing enough courts for team trainings, more information will be known by registration day.

We are hoping that if adequate numbers, there will be an U16s girls competition this year instead of all U16s and U19s girls rolling into the one Youth competition.
