Term 3 Update - Rapid Increase!

Updated: Jun 22

What a term we have! Check out our latest updates about Term 3!

Welcome YES!

Youth Education Services have become the newest affiliated club to Franklin Basketball and started their Basketball journey off with five teams and players on a waitlist for Term 4 already!

Senior Club Competition

Franklin's newest 15U & 17U Club grades on a Wednesday night has hit the ground running this term! With eight teams in our 15U Grade and six in our 17U Grade, it has been awesome to give those players who would usually stop playing after Secondary Schools season is complete, an opportunity to continue to build their skills and have a run with their mates!

Junior Club Competition

Our largest competition to date ever! A FBA record of 45 teams and that isn't including our Beginner Hoopsters who we host mini games for on a Friday!

With the addition of the YES Club, and the increase in players within our other 6 clubs, we are excited to see this growth and for it to continue as Basketball continues to be school ages children's most popular sport!

Mid Week Hoops

Increase in participation has been throughout all of our programmes in Term 3. In our mid week Adults comp, we have seen an increase in both Men's A and Mixed grades.

We are looking to transition out of Men's C grade and create a competitive Open grade and a social Open Grade in Term 4 which looks like a positive move from our current Mixed grade teams!

Welcome Te Kauwhata Titans in Term 4!

Coach Sam has been working hard behind the scenes to establish our 8th affiliated club in the Franklin region! Te Kauwhata Titans will join our competitions in Term 4 with predicted to have five teams. We are excited to see this along with Te Kauwhata College joining our Secondary Schools Comp, and having players from TK enjoying our comps!

Secondary Schools Tournaments (Junior Premiership, Northern Cup & AA Premiership)

The Franklin Region saw a handful of the local High Schools competing in the various tournaments across the Secondary Schools Tournament week.

A few of our FBA Coaches were apart of these Secondary School Teams who competed in the Basketball Tournaments!
