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.

The programme includes specialised skills-based training each Thursday at 6am. For selection, students must:
- Have a good academic record and are required to maintain this;
- Have an excellent attendance record; and
