  • 2018 Eastern U13 Boys

    Saturday 28th & Sunday 29th July our local U13 boys tournament was held at Archer Stadium in Gore. The boys put in a massive effort both days winning one of our games 68-20, and not quite getting there in the other 2 games with losses of 30 points respectively. Fantastic to see some of our hard work at training pay off.

    With plenty to work on we continued training weekly before setting off for our next tournament at the Edgar Centre in Dunedin - Saturday 15th & Sunday 16th September. We noticed a large improvement in the team since Gore tournament, particularly in our defense. Dunedin being our first away tournament was a great experience for our team who had a blast with playing 1v1 at a nearby school until dark, multiple trips to the dairy, time relaxing at the beach after games, and a swim and hydroslide at Moana Pool to finish the tournament. Thank You Basketball Otago for a great tournament.

    With an invite to Canterbury Basketball's B grade tournament we selected a team of 7 and travelled to Christchurch Friday 28th September for 5 games over the Saturday and Sunday. Our team took this to a new level and were highly competitive in all our games showing some fantastic combinations on the court and posting our highest game scores.

  • 2019 ESBA Basketball Development Program

    Starting Monday 28th January 2019, ESBA are launching our 8 week player and coach development program. Lead by head coach Peter Howes, our training program will teach individual skills through to team structure, and put it all to practice with game time to finish each session. Spaces are limited to 20 players per group, with 3 groups for boys and girls. At the completion of the program each player will receive a 'record of achievement' - highlighting your strengths and providing feedback to improve your game.

  • 2019 Main Season Entry Info

    The 2019 season welcomes changes to the school grades previously known as C, D & E grade. C & D grade are replaced by 'Secondary Schools A' and 'Secondary Schools B', with E grade replaced by 'Intermediate' grade. While these grades still have a suggested age group, it allows players to play in the Secondary A or B competition best suited to their level, at the committees discretion.

    The 2019 Secondary Schools A & B Grades will also start the season 3 weeks earlier on the 25th March 2019, with the competition running for 14 weeks. As our U15, U17 & U19 rep team tournaments are all held early in the year, this gives our players game time before tournament. 'Secondary Schools A' players may also be eligible to play in our open seniors A grade competition, at the committees discretion.
