U13 Regionals 2023

To be eligible for the U13 Regional tournament players must be 13 years old or younger for all of 2023. They can not turn 14 years old this year. The youngest a player is allowed to be is 11 years old.

(BBNZ adjusted its age definitions to fall in line with FIBA and with almost all other sporting codes in New Zealand. This means that players in, for example, an under 13 team or event will be able to turn 13 in the year of the event – in effect under 13 will mean 13 and under. This will have the effect of moving all age limits up by one year.)

To register for the trials - registrations will be open later in the year.

A second trial may be added the following weekend if required. This will be communicated via email following the first trial.
