During Term 1, students are invited to trial for Year 7 and 8 Basketball Leagues.

Players are expected to commit to the entire basketball season including at least one practice per week at a time agreed with their coach.

Teams compete throughout the year.  The competitive teams play all year around and 1 team goes forward to represent RI at Central Zones. Social basketball teams also join a league and play games each week. We also have formed a development squad with the objective of learning and improving basketball skills.

The Central Zones Basketball competition is held in Term 3.

Transport to and from games each week is the responsibility of parents and caregivers.

Coaching and Team Management

Teams are managed by volunteers so we rely heavily upon support from parents and friends to ensure that our teams can be registered to play.  There is an opportunity during the registration process to indicate any offers of assistance.

All teams that take part in our coaching programme are coached by East Auckland Youth Basketball NZ which is run by Stuart McEwen, the CEO & District Director, at a cost per player. Coach Josh Reeves will oversee our coaching programme along with other coaches. 

The Central Zones teams are coached by RI teaching staff.
