The 2018 Gold Coast Junior Basketball League will have a new structure in 2018.  With the upcoming Commonwealth Games affecting the hiring of venues for our competition, we have had to move games to incorporate five different venues around the Gold Coast and amend playing days to cater for the competition.

All players must be registered with Basketball Queensland and Gold Coast Registration,  fees are compulsory ($110.00) and be registered with a club. No players will be eligible to take the court unregistered.
