Crusaders – Senior

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 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 Waratah 1 Youth Men and Women League and Waratah 1 Men and Womens 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.
