Basketball is one of Riccarton’s most popular sports for boys and girls with 15 teams playing during 2018. We have teams of all ages that compete on Friday nights around Christchurch against other schools and in 2019 will look to have a 3×3 league based here at Riccarton HS. Teams train after school or during lunch time throughout the week.
Our Senior A Boys team compete in the Thompson Trophy on Tuesday nights with our Senior A Girls team looking to join the Whelan Cup in 2019. These are the premiere school basketball competitions in Canterbury.
We look to send our Senior A Boys and Girls teams as well as our Junior A Boys and Girls teams to tournament each year. These take place in NZ Secondary Schools winter tournament week.
No equipment is need however having a pair of indoor sports shoes is helpful.
