2017 Season Information

Overview of Gold Coast Basketball Junior Basketball League (GCJBL)

Message from Blades:  At this point in time we have no confirmed teams, coaches, committee or venue so please take the below as possible not probable. Without parent and volunteer support the oldest junior club on the Gold Coast will sadly close. Last season we trained Tuesday afternoon/evening at the Doyle Centre, Marymount College fielding 5 teams (two of them very successfully coached by other young players), making two finals and winning one. Below is the general information from Gold Coast Basketball and at the bottom is Blades specific information. 

The Gold Coast Junior Basketball league is the Premier Gold Coast Junior Basketball Competition.

The League consists of nine clubs, TSS Suns (Southport), Celtics (Carrara), Heat (Reedy Creek), Blades (Burleigh), PBC Magpies (Palm Beach), Varsity Vipers (Varsity Lakes), Somerset Spartans (Mudgeeraba) Tweed Slammers (Southern Gold Coast/Northern NSW) and Panthers (Northern GC).

Competitions are run for both boys and girls in the U9,11,13,15,17 and 20 age groups.

The purpose of the GCJBL is to provide a competition pathway for junior basketball players on the Gold Coast.

The 2017 Gold Coast Junior Basketball League runs from February 24th through to August 19th (Winter season) and from the 6th October through to the 9th of December (Summer League).  Currently Registration is only open for the Winter Season (fees will cover the Pre-Season and Winter Season). 

Blades Basketball will begin taking registrations now with trials taking place in early February.
