BASKETBALL REGISTRATION 2023
UPDATE: Registrations have now closed for Basketball 2023 Semester One - if you wish for your child to go on the waitlist, please email
Registration will be open from Monday 16th January for those students wanting to play Basketball for Northcross in Semester One - Terms 1 & 2 in 2023.
Before your child commits to this sport there is some very important information you need to know.
Games and Venues
Games are played on Monday evenings at either Eventfinda Stadium, Glenfield, AUT Northcote or Massey University, Albany. The semester starts with grading games commencing Monday 27th February.
Weekly draws can also be found on the following website www.harbourbasketball.co.nz .
Coaches, Managers and Umpires
Each team will need a coach and manager. If we cannot get enough coaches we will have to reduce the number of teams and unfortunately some children will miss out on playing. If you are interested in being a coach or manager for Basketball, please indicate this on registration.
All Coaches and Managers are required to be police vetted by Northcross. If you are keen to take on one of these roles and have not yet been police vetted by our school, please email and we will send you through the relevant forms to fill out.
Registration/Fees Girls and Boys $175 per player / per semester
To register your child for Basketball this semester, you will need to go to the NX Online Shop (you can find the link on the Northcross Website). A $55 deposit will be required with registration. This deposit is non-refundable. Once teams have been formed, the remainder of the balance will be required to be paid on the Online Shop. The date for this payment is still to be confirmed but will be due at the beginning of Term 2.
Please note that while we will accept registrations from all players, Harbour Basketball may not be able to fit all teams into the competition so some players may miss out. If this is the case, then the registration deposit will be refunded.
Registrations will close on Monday 23rd January.
Trials & Trainings
All who register will be placed in a team. Trials will take place within the week starting Tuesday 24th January.
An email will be sent out prior to this week to inform you of your child’s specific trial time. All players will have a second trial and will be notified, by email, after their first trial.
We understand that these trials will take place when some families are still away on holiday - if this pertains to you, please contact and another trial time will be organised the following week.
If your child is a beginner, they do not need to attend trials, they will be placed in a beginner team. However, if they wish to be considered for a higher team, they can attend the trial.
All trials will be held in the school gym. Students are to wear their PE gear (or suitable clothes if your child has no PE gear yet) and remember their drink bottle. Players will not be able to trial in bare feet. Please check your email daily for notification of second trial time.
Training will be held on either a Tuesday, Wednesday or Thursday afternoon in the NX Gym - day and time will be dependent on which team your child is placed in.
Thank you for your support in Basketball. We look forward to another successful season for Northcross.
