NWB offers weekly competitions for both new and experienced players. This is the ideal place to get involved if you have recently completed a Wiz Kidz program or your child falls outside of the Wiz Kidz age bracket. Separate competitions are played for each age group from Under 9’s through to Under 17’s and beyond. Each age bracket consists of multiple divisions to cater for competitive, developing and social players. Players represent their geographical area in their club colours, playing against other clubs from the northside of Brisbane. Clubs train during the week in their catchment area with competition games being held on weekends at Boondall or one of our other central locations. To enquire about joining a team contact your local club from the list below. For further information about the competition and clubs, contact the Wizards office on 0405 622 417 or 0405 722 433.
Club Competitions – Junior Male players
Junior boys teams are organised by our affiliated clubs. Players are required to register with a club (unless they are part of a Wizards partner school basketball program).

Under 9, Under 11 and Under 13 boys competitions are played on Saturdays at The Sports Centre, Boondall (Brisbane Entertainment Centre Complex). Game times range from 8.00am to 3.00pm. Occasionally games are played at an alternate venue, usually the South Pine Sports Complex at Brendale (among others).

Under 9 and Under 11 Junior Competitions re-start at the beginning of each school term to allow for additional players to graduate from our Wiz Kidz beginner programs and move in to the competition.
The Under 13 to Under 19 Junior Competitions is divided into two seasons over the year:
Terms one, two & three of the school calendar comprise the Championship Season. All age groups participate in sign-on and trial days on the first two weekends of school term one (days and times to be advised for each club). This is followed by a three week grading competition, where the junior clubs are able to move players between teams to ensure they are balanced and competitive. The teams may also be moved between divisions to ensure they participate in a balanced competition. The Championship Season for Under 13 to Under 19 teams will continue through to the end of term three, where all teams will compete towards a final series, culminating in division finals and potential division champions.
Term four is the Summer Season where court time is a bit more relaxed. No Finals, no trophies, just a chance to keep active as we head into the summer holiday break.
