Three mixed teams will be trialled and entered into Friday night competition as well. Coaches yet to be confirmed.
We have entered the following teams; Girls A team, Girls Development, Boys A team and Boys Development. Mixed teams as well. There maybe some movement between teams due to training clashes and matching player combinations if the coaches feel their needs to be.
These teams will play each Friday evening at the Bishopdale YMCA during Term 2: 11th May (6 weeks) Term 3: 26th July (6 weeks)
Each week the draws will be sent out via email and on the school website so you are well informed of what time your child’s game will be on Friday evening.

There will be other costs if your child attends the below tournaments.
Every Cobham team has BLK Basketball uniforms which we loan out for the year. It is your responsibility to clean and ensure that they are handed back at the end of the year.
We are going to have warm-up t-shirts and Hoodies designed so all our teams look professional and smart. This will cost approx. $35 for T-shirt and $60 for the hoodie. We are looking for any sponsorship from the community for these items so if your workplace or your business would be interested in sponsoring the teams please get in contact. The sponsor will be screen printed onto the clothing.
We have several other opportunities for your child to potentially represent Cobham in Basketball. They are the AIMS Games, CAIMS Invitational tournament and South Island Tournaments (Rangiora T1 Holidays and Oamaru T2 holidays).
AIMS Games- The AIMS Games is a weeklong tournament that has a wider range of sports and more participants than the Commonwealth Games. This tournament is in Tauranga and is held from the 9th September to 14th September. Each year we make a decision based on the strength of the teams’ performances on Fridays and the talent we have in the school as to the inclusion of Girls, Boys or both teams to represent Cobham. This is a highly competitive tournament and because of this we will only include basketball if we feel they have a strong competitive chance. This decision will be made before the 2nd June.
CAIMS Invitational Tournament – This tournament is held over two days in October (23th and 24th). We enter one boy’s and one girl’s side to compete against other Christchurch Intermediate Schools and any outside of Christchurch Schools that may attend. We host James Hargest College from Invercargill every year and help with billeting their students. These teams will be selected closer to the time.
If you have any questions please don’t hesitate to email.
