2021 Sweet 16 Basketball Tournament
Welcome to the Annual U15 ALL SCHOOLS BASKETBALL CHAMPIONSHIPS – THE SWEET 16. The carnival came into existence due to the limited opportunities for the younger athletes who could not play in the open competitions which currently exist. The College has worked closely with Logan Basketball on this initiative.
The competition is open to all Catholic, state and independent schools across Australia. In its second year, 27 schools from across South East Queensland competed in 4 divisions. Additionally, 2019 saw the introduction of the 13 years boys and girls competition.
The rise of interest in the NBA, and in turn the Australian equivalent, the NBL has led to an explosion in the numbers of students playing basketball. The demand is high, and the tournament entries indicate a very successful event, with all Divisions being full. There is a genuine excitement in the school and basketball community for the event. In 2020 over 1000 students and staff will be in attendance, and spectator attendance is expected to be even higher than in previous years.
