We invite schools in the Hornsby region to participate in a Basketball Gala Day.

This is a great experience for students, with everyone playing basketball games in a friendly atmosphere, where results are not the priority, but entire team involvement being the ultimate fun.

This is the perfect opportunity for your some of your newer students to basketball to “have a go” and enjoy the fun of playing with their friends against children from other schools.

Travel is minimized as all games are played at the Brickpit Sports Stadium in Thornleigh. This is a fantastic indoor venue central to all schools involved with the possibility of sharing transport means.

Choose from one of two days in 2023:

  • Tuesday 14th November
  • Wednesday 22nd November

Entering Teams
(1) Teams are composed of players from stage 2 and stage 3 students two years group – i.e. boys teasm and girls teams
(2*) Schools can enter up to a maximum of 2 teams in each division on a gala day
(3*) Teams will be accepted on a first in basis only
(4*) We cannot fit more than 6 girls teams and 8 boys stage 2 and 3 teams in each division on a gala day

Due the popularity of these gala days we ask that you nominate a first preference and a second preference for your playing day as we try to accommodate everyone, but cannot fit more than 6 girls teams and 8 boys teams in each division on any given gala day.

The days games will start at 8:45am and go through to 2:45pm, with each team being scheduled to play four 18 minute games. The cost to play is just $14.00 per student, and all officials are provided by our Association.  Each team needs to provide a person to complete either the scoresheet or operate the scoring console (the easiest way to organise this is to have the boys doing this whilst the girls are playing and vice versa).


To enter please email the teams you wish to enter, and the day you wish to nominate to play.
