St Paul’s Collegiate School offers basketball to students during the winter sports season.

Students take part in practice training either before or after school on St Paul’s two modern indoor basketball courts and several outdoor courts.

Trials for this sport take place at the end of Term 1, after which students are placed into teams of their ability. In Terms 2 and 3, students compete in their respective competitions with games played on a home-and-away basis throughout the Waikato region. Competitions that students can compete in include:

  • Waikato senior boys' premier
  • Waikato open senior boys
  • Waikato junior boys

A sports levy applies to this sport. Qualifying and national tournament fees and travel and accommodation costs are disbursed to students' accounts accordingly.


  • 3x3 National Champs (Premier Boys and Premier Junior Boys)
  • CNI Tournament (Premier Boys)
  • Schick Cup (Premier Boys)

Trainings will depend on which team your son/daughter is involved with. Premier Boys train 4 times a week (Monday – Thursday), times will vary – morning, after school or evening. The team plays Wednesday and Friday. Social teams have no training and play on a Thursday. Junior Boys – train twice per week (Monday and Wednesday) 3.45 pm-5:00 pm. The team plays on a Tuesday.
