For those players registered for the skills sessions there may be an option to take part in competition games for the last 7 weeks of Term 1 as part of the Franklin Basketball Junior Club Competition. There will be a cost for this and players must be involved in the skills sessions in order to join a team.

This will be determined once we gauge the interest from players and whether we can field enough players in particular age groups. 

Term 1 Competition Dates

Game nights are Fridays unless stated below in the dates, game times vary between 4:00 - 8:00pm depending on grade and the total number of teams entered. 

February: 26th

March: 5th, 12th, 19th, 26th 

April: 13th (Tues), 9th, 16th


The players fee for playing one of the Tuakau Basketball teams is estimated at $50.00 - 65.00 per player which will be invoiced by Franklin Basketball once teams are entered.

We are looking to reduce this cost with funding but cannot be confirmed just yet.
