The South Queensland Junior Basketball Competition (SQJBC, formerly known as BQJBC) is a representative competition conducted in the south-east region of Queensland. The competition caters for Under 12 to Under 21 age groups in both boys and girls.
SQJBC provides a competition pathway for elite junior players representing their associations, with Basketball Queensland’s affiliated associations in the south-east Queensland region eligible to enter.
Basketball Queensland have advised of some changes to the Junior Representative Program to commence from the 2021-22 Rep season. Whilst the final details are not yet published, we have decided to deliver our Northside Wizards 2021 Rep Ready development program to align with the proposed changes.
The first age group to be impacted by the changed calendar will be the U18 age group, for players born in 2005 and 2006. Their 2021-22 schedule will be:
Term 2 2021 – Northside Wizards Rep Ready Program, followed by U18 selection trials prior to the June/July school holidays
Term 3 2021 – Selected U18 teams/squads Team Preparation, followed by grading prior to the Sept/Oct school holidays
Term 4 2021 – SQJBC games and finals
Term 1 2022 – U18 State Championships
Further details will be circulated once received from Basketball Queensland.
