Countdown to the 2009 School Championships

Countdown to the 2009 School Championships

Newcastle Basketball Association in Northern NSW will host the 2009 Australian Schools Championships.

At these Championships, (formally known as the National Schools Basketball Tournament) athletes from schools around Australia compete across Junior and Senior, Male and Female divisions.  The winners are crowned as the best school basketball team in their division in the country. Considering the exceptional depth of basketball around Australia, this is a prestigious title for schools to take out.

The Men's and Women's Championship Divisions are the blue ribbon events of the Championship.  They allow the best team from each state to compete against each other for the major title.

Divisions include Championship Men, Championship Women, Senior Boys (multiple divisions), Senior Girls (multiple divisions), Junior Boys (multiple divisions) and Junior Girls (multiple divisions).

These championships form a vital pathway from participation through to elite competition for the nation's junior athletes.

Like all of Basketball Australia's junior programs, the Australian Schools Championships will provide the athletes with an invaluable understanding of what it takes to play in an elite competition.
