Summer Season (Term 4, 2019/Term 1, 2020)

If you are interested in registering your child to play with the Carina Cobras in the upcoming Summer Season, you MUST contact  us first as spaces are limited.  Please email the following information to our Boys Registrar Amanda via registrar@carinacobras.com.au or our Girls Registrar Donna girlsregistrar@carinacobras.com.au and we will let you know whether vacancies are available in your child's age division.

  • Child's Name
  • Child's date of birth 

  • Child's current school

  • Details of your child’s past basketball experience:

    • School only, club level or rep level?

    • How many seasons played. 

    • Age/skill divisions played

    • If your child has club/rep level experience please provide names of clubs/rep associations and age/skill divisions played

  • Details of your child’s experience in other sports (e.g., 2 seasons AFL, 3 years netball)

  • General description of height (tall/average/small for age).  We take players of all sizes and use this information simply to ensure our teams are balanced.

  • Parent 1 - Full name, contact phone number and email address

  • Parent 2 - Full name, contact phone number and email address

Please note that the Summer Season runs over two school terms - Term 4 2019 and Term 1 2020.  Please think carefully about whether your child can commit to the full season as we have limited vacancies that should be allocated to children who can commit to supporting their team throughout the season.  It also makes it very difficult for us to administer the club and our teams if we lose players to school sport in Term 1 - if your child will be prioritising school sport in Term 1, please remember the effect that their regular absence will have on their Cobras team and consider whether it is realistic to juggle school sport and club basketball.

See our New Contacts Page for more information about playing with the Carina Cobras.

See also the SDBA's website page links to "Junior Club Websites" for contact details for other junior basketball clubs that train and play around the Carina area and may have vacancies (use Links TAB).  

Our history

Carina Cobras is a non-profit club,run solely by volunteers dedicated to the development and increased participation in basketball for children and young adults.

The Carina Cobras was formed in 1982 and is a foundation member of the Southern Districts Basketball Association (SDBA), one of the largest basketball associations in Queensland and home of the mighty Spartans. The Carina Cobras has consistently been one of the largest and most successful clubs in the SDBA and is the last of the SDBA foundation clubs still operating.

The Cobras Club fields teams in all age groups - from the under 7's mixed teams through to U19 Youth Girls and U20 Men. The Cobras fielded 75 teams in the 2019 Winter Season. 

The Carina Cobras have seen many of its juniors go on to play representative basketball at both regional and state level. The Cobras have also had several members go on to successful basketball careers in the National Basketball League, college basketball in USA & the 2016 Olympic team. 

Our objective is to provide a well run organisation which makes basketball available to boys and girls of all age groups and at all skill levels. We seek to:

  • Promote the game of Basketball in an encouraging environment - for the joy of playing basketball as well as endeavouring to constantly improve the skill levels of our players and coaches.

  • Provide opportunities for children and adults to play and enjoy basketball - for both those who want to play basketball as a social sport and those who want to take their sport to a representative level.

  • Encourage the development of players and coaches - to raise the overall players standard we are continuously developing our coaches through access to formal coaching courses and encouraging players to become coaches once their playing days are completed.

  • Promote good sportsmanship and develop both club and team spirit amongst our players and coaches.

Latest Info

Coaches Wanted - Please contact Jo Ible 0408 632 167

Carina Cobras is always on the lookout for coaches. We particularly need coaches available for afternoon & early evening training. We can't run one of the biggest junior clubs in Australia without your continued assistance. The club will fund our coaches to attend courses towards accreditation & welcome seniors and juniors who are willing. 

Accreditation is not compulsory but the club encourages completion. If you are only available to coach on game day we can accomodate you & we have mentors available if you would like to work as an assistant coach initially.
