Play Basketball – All you need to know


Seasons

Winter season Term 2 & Term 3

Summer season is Term 4 & Term 1

Please note: We start planning our seasons 1 month prior to the end of term. i.e we start planning our winter season 1 month before Easter (end of term 1) and planning our Summer season 1 month before the end of term 3.  Most teams are generally full & it is unlikely that we will have capacity for extra players at the beginning of term 1 & term 3.
