About Us

Our success is due to our all year round provision of basketball activities, delivered to the very highest standard.

Harbour Basketball offers a large number of activities and programmes of excellent quality providing a pathway for every basketballer to realise his or her ambition’

Harbour Basketball has representative teams that participate in all National Age Group tournaments, with a success rate unparalleled by any other Basketball Association in the country. Our representative players are provided the very best opportunity to become the stars of tomorrow.

Wanting to Play Basketball?

Harbour Basketball Association run various competitions, ranging from primary school, through to intermediate and secondary schools, and all the way to senior competitions.

If your son or daughter would like to play basketball, and attends a school (primary, intermediate or secondary) in the Harbour region, he or she will need to contact their school about joining one of their teams that play in our competitions.

If your school does not have a team entered into any of our competitions, a parent can actively take over the role, gather up a sufficient number of children, about 7 and enter a team, however the team has to have players who belong to the same school.

If you are an adult who wants to get off the couch and play basketball, you have a couple of options:

1. If you are an individual wanting to play basketball, [we can put you into contact with our basketball clubs in the North Harbour region, and they will usually run trials and place you into an appropriate team that matches your skill level.] – THIS IS NOT ACCURATE

2. If you have friends or colleagues who might be interested in playing, you can enter a whole team yourself into one of our many leagues (Premier Men, A Grade Men, A Grade Women, A-Reserve Men, B Grade Men, B Grade Women and Social league).
