About the Program
The Flames WABL Basketball Program currently comprises of 18 teams, both male and female in grades under 12/ 14/ 16/ 18. Our teams compete against associations throughout the state each Sunday within the Western Australia Basketball League (WABL). This is an elite representative competition.
This is the competition from which Western Australia state representatives are identified and continues to be the corner stone from where NBL and WNBL players emerge from.
Basketball WA (BWA) has recently introduced a grading system, expanding it each year. At present grading occurs February - March for U12/ U14/ U16 boys and girls teams. Grading has allowed an increase in the amount of WA Basketball League divisions in each age group. This is enabling more player participation across the state.
The under 18 WABL program is currently comprised of 12 Basketball Associations split into two conferences, one North of the river, the other South.
Flames also have two senior teams who compete in the SBL Division 1 Womens and Mens competition which runs along side both our SBL and WABL programs giving great development opportunities to all involved.
For the Flames, being involved in the WABL see’s over 150 home games held at the Mike Barnett Sports Complex between April - September 2017, bringing visitors from all across the state into our stadium.
