Rep commitment

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

It is a privilege and an honour to represent the Spirit and one that should not to be taken lightly.

Representative basketball takes a huge amount of time, commitment and dedication throughout the season. Players are expected to train, compete in local competitions and participate in club activities throughout the season, as well as compete in the Spalding Waratah Metro Junior League within Basketball NSW.
