Please select the link below to access the weekly Bishopdale Basketball Draw. Students must arrive 15 minutes before tip off so they can meet with your coaches.
If you are unable to make a game, you must communicate this with Mr Evers via email (firstname.lastname@example.org) so your coaches are aware of how many students will be in attendance.
Remember to bring your mouthguard each week, as players will not be taking the court without it.
A reminder that students must hand in their basketball singlet following their game (except for the Heaton Hawks and Heaton Harriers).
A huge thank you to all students who registered and took part in basketball trials over the last few weeks. The attitude and performances were fantastic and we are really excited for the season ahead.
As I mentioned at trials, if you were unsuccessful in making a team this year and you are still very interested in taking part, please come and see Mr Evers and he can link you with a team to train with. This way, if we have any injuries, illness or absences there may be scope for you to play some Friday evening games.

This year we will be now entering 8 teams in the Bishopdale YMCA competition which runs for 12 weeks on Friday nights in term 2 and 3. The first games are on 12th May and every team will have at least one training before their first game. A regular training schedule will be established when the teams for other codes have been selected.Students will play in their PE shorts and basketball top which be given out before the first game. All players must have a mouth guard to play, this is compulsory requirement from Basketball NZ and there can be no exceptions.
This years teams are below. Thank you to all of you who trialled and if you missed out keep working at it as there is always next year. Practices will be announced in the notices and a letter will be going home shortly (access the letter here) which needs to be signed and returned to secure your place in the team.
