Basketball Queensland State Championships

Queensland State Basketball Championships logo

The Basketball Queensland State Championships is the premier representative basketball competition available to junior players in Queensland, with the series of tournaments taking place from January to April each year.

Entry nominations are open to all Basketball Queensland affiliated associations, with season champion teams from BQJBC, QNJBC and CDC competitions gaining automatic entry into the annual State Championships events.

Each tournament is segmented by age group (Under 12s, Under 14s, Under 16s, Under 18s) with separate events and venues for boys and girls in the Under 14 and Under 16 age groups. Teams are also designated into divisions to allow for strong competition in an even playing field.

Each tournament runs for four to five days, with Basketball Queensland affiliated associations able to nominate to host an event each year.

The State Championships provides a pathway for players to develop their basketball career with the potential to be identified for entry into the Basketball Queensland High Performance Program, and also is a major development activity for Queensland junior referees.

The Basketball Queensland State Championships are supported by Hoop 2 Hoop (www.hoop2hoop.com.au)

State Championships Postponed

Basketball Queensland can now confirm the Under 12, 14 and 16 Boys and Girls State Championships, to be held in July, have been postponed.

The State Championships are a highlight for many participants, from players to officials and as we look to resume our representative calendar in line with the Queensland Government‘s Easing Restrictions Guidelines, we have an opportunity to hold these State Championships during the Spring school holidays.

Proposed Dates
Age Division Date Venue 
Under 16 (Boys & Girls) 21 – 24 September, 2020 Girls: Southern Districts 
Boys: Logan 
Under 14 (Boys) 24 – 27 September, 2020 Cairns 
Under 12 (Boys & Girls) 28 September – 1 October, 2020 Townsville 
Under 14 (Girls) 2 – 5 October, 2020 Mackay 


There are several factors that we have taken into consideration, and we want to make clear that the State Championships will only proceed if restrictions across the state have been eased so that we can conduct the championships safely and in compliance with Government requirements.
