Basketball

Basketball is one of our strongest sporting codes at Selwyn College, with at least 8 teams playing in Auckland Secondary School Basketball Competitions in Term 2 and 3. Our junior program in 2020 consisted of 3 boys teams and 1 girls team who competed at U17 level.   Our Senior program consisted of two teams in both the U17 and U19 competitions. We have also consistently qualified for the Auckland Secondary Schools Champions Tournament over the past few years.
The aim of the Basketball programme is to encourage and increase participation in Basketball for boys and girls of all years. Students are trained by expert coaches to help develop their skills, supplied with quality training equipment and provided access to the Barfoot and Thompson Stadium for training purposes. 

The College caters for both Senior and Junior Basketball for Boys and Girls.
