This weekend we will have six teams competing in the Basketball Tasmania Northern High Schools Tournament. There are 4 boys and 2 girls teams across two divisions. These are combined teams of Year 7/8 and Year 9/10 students. We would like to take this opportunity to thank those staff, coaches and parents who will be assisting with these teams over the weekend. This competition is part of a state-wide event being held this weekend in each of the North, North West and Southern regions. The top three teams from each Division 1 competition in each region will then meet for the State Championships on 9-10 December.

A summary of the games can be downloaded using this link, the majority of Sunday’s game times will be determined on placings from the Saturday games. It would be great to have as many supporters as possible at our games, please note that there are no fees upon entry to each of the venues this year.

We wish all our teams the best of luck for their games and look forward to an exciting weekend of Basketball.
