Each winter season, NCBA enters teams into the Canterbury Basketball Club Competition under the “NC” Banner. 

This competition is a great step up from our 4D Freight FNBB competition for kids to continue their development. In alignment with our development philosophy, we aim to provide the opportunity for everyone to play who wants to. 

The 2024 season runs from the end of April to the end of August, with games played throughout Christchurch on Saturday and Sundays against clubs from the region. Additionally, teams train 1x per week. 

Grades that are offered in 2023 by NCBA are below alongside their trial information.
