Participating in representative basketball requires players to commit to attending two training sessions per week and attending North Queensland regional tournaments, the Queensland North Junior Basketball Competition (NQJBC). This involves a tournament in Mackay, Townsville and at home.
In addition, teams attend the State Championships which are held at associations throughout the State.
There are also costs involved in participating in representative basketball. Costs vary depending on the cost to travel to the State Championship, but you should budget for approximately $3,000 per player to participate.
