About Carina Cobras

Carina, Carindale and Districts Basketball Club (CC&DBC) is a "not for profit" association dedicated to the development of, and participation in, the game of basketball for young adults and children throughout southern Brisbane.

The Carina, Carindale and Districts Basketball Club was formed in 1982 and is a foundation member of Southern Districts Basketball Association (SDBA), one of the largest basketball associations in Queensland with approximately 2000 members. The “Carina Cobras”, as the club is more commonly known, has consistently been one of the largest and the most successful clubs in this Association and is the last of the SDBA foundation club's still operating.

The Cobras Club fields teams in all age groups - from the under 7's Biddy-Ball for boys and girls, to U19 women & U20 men. Cobras will field 74 teams in term 4, 2018. U13 boys divisions 1 to 3, U15 boys & girls & U17 boys and girls play Friday night. U7, U9, U11 boys & girls, U13 girls & U13 boys divisions 4 & 5 play Saturday. U20 men play Tuesday nights & U19 Youth women play Wednesday nights.

Although there are no geographic restriction on membership, traditionally the Club tends to draw its members from the Carina, Carindale, Mt Gravatt, Holland Park, Morningside, Camp Hill and surrounding areas, however all are welcome to become a part of the Cobras.

Carina Cobras have seen many of its junior's go on to play representative basketball at both regional and state level. 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 men and women, boys and girls for all age groups and at all skill levels. We seek to:

  • Promote the game of Basketball - 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.

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.
