Southland Basketball has girls and boys representative teams for Under 13, Under 15, Under 17, Under 19 and Under 23.

Trials are held for each of these teams and then squads are selected for trainings. Squads train up to twice a week as they lead up towards tournaments.

Teams of 10 are selected prior to tournaments.

Each team will play in a Pre-Season tournament, a Qualifying Tournament and then the National Tournament (depending on if the team qualifies). The teams also play a handful of exhibition games throughout the season.

Keep an eye on the SBA website and Facebook page for updates on the rep programme as well as trial information. Otherwise, feel free to contact Diane Newton for any additional information:
