Competition Seasons

Our Club participates in the Brisbane Basketball Inc (BBI) competition which is played at the Vince Hickey Stadium in Auchenflower.


The year is split up into 3 distinct seasons being the Grading, Championship & "Come and Play" Seasons. The Grading Season is conducted over term 1 of the school year. We use this season to grade players into the correct team & division for the upcoming championship season.  As a result, players may be moved between teams to give coaches the opportunity to determine their appropriate division.

The Championship Season encompasses terms 2 & 3 of the school year and is the main competition for Brisbane Basketball. The competition takes a break during the June/July school holidays and recommences at the start of term 3.  This season ends in a final series just before the September school holidays.

The "Come and Play" Season commences at the start of term 4 of the school year and finishes at the end of November.  Some players and coaches choose to take a break during this season and it is used by the Club to start preparation (organising teams & coaches) for the following year.


Like the junior format, there are 2 distinct seasons for seniors to play in. The Summer season generally commences in the middle of January and continues through to the start of July.

The Winter season commences shortly after this and runs through until the end of November.

The Greater Brisbane League (GBL) is Brisbane’s premier “A” grade competition in which clubs from all over Brisbane and South East Queensland come to the Vince Hickey Stadium to participate. The Greater Brisbane League in 2002 was expanded to include an Under 23 Men’s and Women’s competition. Dragons Basketball Club fields very competitive teams each year in the Greater Brisbane League competition. The GBL winter season finishes with a very exciting final series in the middle of August.
