Central Coast Basketball are very proud to provide a representative pathway for both junior and senior players which allows our athletes to compete against the states best at an elite level.
Our junior development club is the Central Coast Rebels and consists of approximately 200 players made up of 20 teams and 4 different age groups (Under 12’s, Under 14’s, Under 16’s and Under 18’s) who compete in the Basketball NSW Eastern Junior League. Rebels host home games and also travel all over the state to compete against other representative teams.
Our senior representative club is the Central Coast Crusaders which is a semi professional basketball association who compete in the Basketball NSW Regional Waratah League Competition. The Crusaders consist of 5 teams and 80 athletes who compete in the Youth League 1, Waratah 2 League and Waratah 1 League.
The Waratah 1 competition is a brand-new league that was launched by Basketball NSW in 2020. After the successful season that the Central Coast Crusaders had in 2019, the teams will now be playing in this newly formed competition. This is a huge accomplishment for not only the players and coaches of the Central Coast Crusaders teams but also a huge accomplishment for sport on the Central Coast as this will put the Central Coast on the main stage for the sport of Basketball on a state level.
