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)
