Australian Basketball System
Basic Overview of the Australian basketball hierarchy
Junior Clubs / School
Junior Club / School
- Domestic Club: Local club teams that play recreationally, weekly and all year round. Generally a one facility under one association.
- Representative Club: Athletes from domestic clubs are typically invited to try out for their region’s / associations representative teams. Athletes are assessed and selected into appropriate talent based levels that compete with other representative teams across each state. This competition is usually played throughout the entire year and has teams from Under12 through to Under 20.
- School Teams: Interschool sports competitions are held over approximately 6 months where athletes from domestic/representative and higher levels all compete for their school and have a chance to play in the National High Schools Championships which are usually held in December each year.
State / Territory Development Programs
Participation in state/territory development programs are by invitation only and typically extended to the top 100 – 200 athletes in each state and age group depending on the state or territory. These programs monitor identified athletes and provide a development framework to assist fundamental and advanced skill acquisition.
State / Territory Team
State teams are comprised of the most elite athletes from each state development program. These teams then represent their state or territory at the Australian Junior Championships in U/16, U/18 and U/20 age groups. These Championships are the highest level of junior competition in Australia.
Centre of Excellence (CoE)
Scholarship positions to Basketball Australia’s Centre of Excellence residential program in Canberra, are typically offered to the 12 most outstanding junior athletes in the country for both men’s and women’s programs. The COE has a daily elite training environment with most of these athletes heading to NCAA DI schools if they choose the college pathway.
Australian Development Camps / Junior National Teams
Australian Development Camps are typically held twice a year and have approximately 30 athletes invited to attend. These athletes are evaluated and selected from their performances in their respective state teams at the National Championships, and often include most of the COE athletes. These camps are also utilised as a mechanism to help select the U/17 and U/19 national teams that compete in their respective World Championships.
All Australian Basketball League
All Australian Basketball League (AABL) is a league set up for elite athletes aged 16 - 20 years. The league provides coaches that have played or coached in the NBA, NBL or at a national level. The rules are a hybrid between the US and FIBA, that allows athletes to play hard and fast and showcase their individual skills. Players are selected into teams via a draft after performing in a combine. Players are ranked and AAB scouting reports are made on each of the athletes. This league represents some of Australia's best talent and provides opportunities for athletes to be identified where they may have otherwise been lost in the club or representative systems. The league also aims to prepare athletes for college and or professional leagues.
