The Northside Wizards Senior Representative Program aspires to provide athletes with the best opportunity to reach their potential, not only as basketball players but as members of the Northside Wizards Basketball community.
Our senior representative program is part of a broader Northside Wizards Basketball community that includes players, coaches, managers, referees, parents, committee, staff and supporters, all dedicated towards helping our athletes and teams achieve their goals. This task requires the involvement of extremely dedicated volunteers, who will all become contributors to our on-court success.
Basketball Queensland (BQ) and the National Basketball League (NBL) recently announced a new partnership to bring NBL1 to Queensland in 2020. NBL1 will replace the existing Queensland Basketball League (QBL) to create more professional pathways and opportunities for males and females playing basketball in Queensland. We are proud to announce that we will have a women’s and men’s team playing in the 2021 NBL1 North season!
The information received so far indicates that there will be three tiers of Senior competition in 2020, being:
Top Tier: NBL1 North (replaces QBL)
Middle Tier: Queensland State League (New comp available to Associations south of Rockhampton)
Entry-Level Tier: Southern Basketball League (SBL)
NBL1 is intended to be an integrated 2nd tier competition to the NBL, with the finalists from NBL1 North (Queensland), NBL1 South (Victoria) and NBL1 East (NSW) competing in an end of season finals series to determine the ultimate NBL1 champions. The Queensland State League will be an intermediate level competition, allowing the recruitment of an import/marquee player. SBL is likely to remain largely unchanged in format.
