Our offerings include weekly domestic competitions, a Basketball NSW affiliated representative program participating in the NSW Waratah League, as well as learn-to-play and skill development basketball training sessions.

Our primary venue is the PCYC Marrickville Sports Centre.

We firmly believe that basketball is a distinctive sport that fosters both individual growth and team building. It plays a crucial role in helping children succeed in their daily lives. Spirit Basketball is open to all children in the local community, and we are committed to the idea that a sense of community and personal growth are essential components for providing kids with an enhanced quality of life and increased opportunities.


Spirit Basketball has Under 12, 14, 16 & 18 Girls and Boys representative teams competing in the Basketball NSW Metro Junior League.

To represent Spirit Basketball is a privilege and an honour and should not to be taken lightly. Representative basketball takes a huge amount of time, commitment and dedication throughout the season.
