    Basketball is a popular sport at Burnside  High School, and we have some of the most successful teams in Canterbury. Since 2012, our senior team has won the CBA U20 competition three times and placed highly when they have not won. They have finished runners up at South Islands the last 2 years running and have finished top 6 at Nationals in 2012 and 2014. Our Junior boys won the South Island Junior tournament last year. We have had several team members selected for Canterbury teams, including the Canterbury RAMS NBL team, and New Zealand representative honours. 

    Uniform: Each team will be issued a uniform and must wear correct non-marking gym shoes and a mouth guard for games.
    RegistrationTrials are held early in term one for Saturday teams and later that term for Friday night competition teams.
