Spartan Basketball

Somerset Basketball offers a great range of opportunity and development within our programmes and pathways. Our co-curricular programmes cover beginners learning the game from an early age, right through to elite training and opportunities for representative players working towards US college scholarships.

The Somerset College Basketball programme is an all-inclusive initiative offered to students from Prep through to Year 12. Our objective is to build resilience, demonstrate integrity, and foster growth as an athlete and a person. We achieve this by consistently emphasising attitude, commitment, leadership, respect and team-first core values. 

Without doubt, winning is highly valued, but our coaching team understand  hat a holistic approach is far more beneficial in the long run. Through process-focused training methods, we achieve a high level of skill development, learn to compete hard for the right reasons, build valuable connections in a competitive team environment, and have lots of fun along the way. We have learnt that with this approach, success always finds its rightful place. 

Basketball Pathway

Our teams compete in the APS inter-school competition, the Gold Coast Club Basketball Competition, and we also provide avenues to representative basketball. Somerset also selects teams each year to travel and take part in the State and Australian Schools Championships (ASC), giving student an opportunity to represent the College at this prestigious tournament. Somerset College is very proud to have a history of attending the ASC, making it a feature event for the Spartans basketball programme.

Somerset Basketball teaches us to love the grind, to remain strong, and to work together to achieve great things.
