Welcome to Belmont Saints Basketball and the 2019-2020 Competition

Welcome to Belmont Saints Basketball.

We are a "not for profit" junior club that plays in the Southern Districts Basketball Association of Brisbane (the largest basketball association in Queensland).

Our objective is to encourage first and foremost participation in and the enjoyment of basketball. Where these things exist development will follow.

We field teams for boys and girls ranging from mixed under 7 to u20 (plus a Dads' team and a Mums' team) and are always open to new player/coach/manager enquiries .

Home for us is the Rowland Cowan Basketball Stadium (part of the Clem Jones Centre) on Zahel Street, Carina. https://mapsengine.google.com/map/edit?mid=z3qTo91XxAgU.kOC3oNx4cg-4
