Last night at the Titanium Security Arena we saw the 2017 SA Junior Championship teams awarded with their medals.

The 2017 SA Junior Championships began Thursday, May 11 and continued all weekend before concluding with grand finals last night. This year the annual Championship turned 35 years old. Since it's inception in 1982, SA's premier junior basketball tournament has grown significantly to warrant the use of 11 stadiums and this year welcomed 152 teams and over 1500 participants from district clubs across the state. 

Yesterday, May 14, saw the State and Reserves grand final teams fight it out for the Championship title. Basketball SA would like to congratulate all participating teams on their outstanding efforts throughout the weekend. The grand final results are below:

*Correction Apology - Basketball SA would like to apologise for incorrectly announcing at the presentations that the Sturt Sabres Basketball Club were joint winners of the State Champion Boys and State Champion Club awards. We apologise for the technical error and the disappointment this may have caused. 

Basketball SA would like to thank the players, coaches, referees, referee coaches, score table officials, court supervisors, stadium managers, customer service officers, and volunteers for facilitating yet another successful SA Junior Championships event.
