The Pakenham & District Basketball Association is a non-profit sporting organisation. Established in the 1960’s the Association runs all domestic competition at the 8 court stadium at Cardinia LIFE, located at 4 Olympic Way, Pakenham. The Association is affiliated with Basketball Victoria.
The Junior Domestic Competition is set up to operate in co operation with many local school teams as well as local domestic clubs and self-administered teams. These clubs organise players into teams and enter them into competitions run by the Pakenham & District Basketball Association. Competitions are currently run for ‘winter’ (from April to September) and ‘summer’ (October to March) seasons, with breaks over all school holidays.
We offer a wide range of competitions that suit the abilities of our junior players. Age ranges start at Under 8’s and extend to our Under 20’s competition. All junior players must be under the age of the age group they are playing in, as at 31st December, in the year that the playing season commences.
Where team numbers permit, competitions are graded into Divisions. Combined divisions, such as a Div 1/2, may be used to allow more teams to play in a wider competition while supporting a finals series for each Division.
- Monday Afternoon/Evening: Under 16’s Under 18’s & Under 20’s Boys competition
- Saturday: U8’s Mixed, U10’s Mixed, U12 Mixed, U14 Boys, U14 Girls & U16 Girls competitions
