Franklin Basketball is a high performing basketball club based in Pukekohe. We cater for the surrounding areas including but not limited to Pukekohe, Waiuku, Tuakau, Onewhero, Karaka, Patumahoe and Pokeno.
Franklin Basketball have been running club based training programs and competitions for the past 10 years for primary and intermediate aged players of all experience levels, as well as, running a secondary schools league for the seven local secondary schools to enter into.
Our primary and intermediate aged programs run every term as opposed to running to the winter and summer seasons, this way players are able to play basketball all year round in order to become the best player they can be.
During this time the quality of our players and teams have improved to a level where we have been able to compete in representative level competitions and tournaments where our teams hold their own and come away with some great results.
Not only does Franklin Basketball provide coaching for players but we also have the vision that to be a great basketball club that we must also develop referees, coaches and managers also. We hold beginner referee courses and ongoing clinics regularly to continually up skill our young referees so that they can referee at representative competitions and in turn improve the quality of our Franklin Basketball leagues and players.
Franklin Basketball aspires to continue its growth in the quantity and quality of players, referees and coaches so that we can continue to be the largest and most successful basketball club in Auckland.
"I am excited to continue to maintain and develop programmes and opportunities within Basketball for our community. With the FBA Staff, I think we will be able to take all our programmes to the next level and help develop an even stronger Basketball presence in the community at a Grassroots level and up!" - Jamie Reddish, General Manager.
