The North Gold Coast Seahawks Junior Basketball Competition is THE PLACE to play basketball on the Gold Coast! Based at the Coomera Indoor Sports Centre, boys and girls from all over the Gold Coast enjoy a weekly club basketball competition which caters for any skill level.
Registrations will reopen for the upcoming Season 2 Competition on June 15th, with play commencing on Monday 27th July, Thursday 29th July, Saturday 1st August and Sunday 2nd August. Under-11 and younger age groups compete on Saturday mornings at Coomera (and other venues from time to time due to venue availability) with Under-13 Boys and Girls and Superleague Girls (U15/17) on Monday nights at Coomera, Under-15 Boys playing on Thursday evenings at Coomera. Under-17 & Under-23 Boys will compete on Sunday afternoon/evenings at Runaway Bay Indoor Sports Centre.
We HIGHLY RECOMMEND that you register right away. Many players missed out in the Summer season as Club’s teams were filled in record time. Countless volunteer hours go into getting a new season prepared so the best way you can support your club is to register right away.
Our clubs are always looking for more volunteers, whether it be coaches, team managers or assisting with club admin. Volunteers are what make all of this happen so if you have an hour or two a week you could give please get in touch with your club and record areas you can volunteer form in the player registration form.
The season is currently postponed while we work through the Covid-19 pandemic. We are constantly reviewing as more information comes to hand. We are still calling for registrations however Game Fees do not need to be paid at this point in time. They can be collected by your club once we have dates locked in for trials/season start. Only pay the Competition Fee and BQ rego now to assist your club in preparing for the coming season, so once we get the all clear, we can get started as soon as possible. Basketball Queensland will be extending BQ rego expiry dates. You can read more from BQ on their Covid-19 FAQ page
The following information is indicative only. Calendars etc will be updated when we can confirm a return date for the competition.
Who do we play for?
North Gold Coast Seahawks Basketball have a number of member clubs servicing the entire northern and central Gold Coast region. Players are free to play for any club they choose, as they may have friends that already play, but we try to direct players to clubs based on the school that they attend. Movement between clubs requires a Clearance to be completed and is done between seasons unless extenuating circumstances exist.
