South Australia boasts a vibrant school basketball program at both primary and secondary school level. 

Basketball SA encourages participation in these programs as an integral part of our basketball community. 

The bodies responsible for the school programs, including inter-school competitions and representative programs are SAPSASA (Primary School Sport), Secondary School Sport SA and Sports Association for Adelaide Schools.

Miniball

Miniball is a fun, social competition for primary school aged children and is the next step up from Aussie Hoops. Schools generally offer miniball as a sports option for children and create teams to play in their local centre. This is often the first time parents or care givers are introduced to the sport and is a great time to begin getting involved in coaching.

Miniball is run at all Basketball SA venues, as well as Basketball SA's affiliate, STARplex. Please contact your local basketball centre for more information.
