3x3 Summer Swish League is back!!





The NCBA is excited to continue to offer this increasingly popular 3x3 "SUMMER SWISH LEAGUE".

This league is a SOCIAL 3x3 competition which is perfect for those looking to continue their basketball throughout summer, and have fun doing it! 3x3 is an exciting, fast-paced type of basketball taking the world by storm and we are bringing it here to North Canterbury for you to try!


The competition runs over 8 weeks and covers the following three NEW GRADES:

- Primary League (school years 7&8)

- Junior High School League (school years 9&10)

- Open Grade League

These grades are a guide to give you an idea on skill levels.  If you are an experienced rep player, you may want to consider playing up a grade, however there should be no more than 2 underage players in a team. No player should play DOWN a grade.

Each week, all teams in each grade will pay each other.  The rotational draw will be determined once all teams are confirmed.  Games are generally 10 minutes each, or end after the winning team score 21 points.  All rules and information will be sent out once teams are confirmed.

All registrations must be received by Sunday 11th February.
