For 26 years, North Canterbury has hosted this major event, where South Island Clubs and Associations are invited to come together to compete for the championship title over a hard-fought three days. Two years ago, we made the tournament even bigger, and more family friendly, by introducing a Year 5/6 grade. This provides young players with a first taste in tournament basketball, which is always a highlight for them. We warmly invite you to take part in this event which, in 2016, had over 40 teams participate. This is especially a great opportunity for primary school basketball players to test themselves against the best from around the South Island.

GRADES

Each grade will have a boys and girls section.

  • Grade: The ‘A’ Grade is where the top Year 7&8 players compete against each other, with a lot of the players having already participated in local and regional representative teams.
  • Development Grade: The development grade is a great place for players relatively new to the game or for those wanting to compete in a less competitive grade. Clubs and Associations are welcome to enter more than one team in this grade.
  • Year 5 & 6: A great opportunity to give younger players their first taste at competing in a tournament and we look forward to seeing them running around and having fun whilst experiencing the thrill of their first South Island tournament.
