Basketball

Basketball has a long tradition at Bayfield and is our largest sport. It is enjoyed with enthusiasm by players. Teams are assembled from Y 2-6.

The children's passion for basketball sees them practising voluntarily at school most days. Teams work together to carpool and organise coaching.

Harbour Basketball offers a large number of activities and programmes of excellent quality providing a pathway for every basketballer to realise his or her ambition'

competitions

Bayfield teams participate in the Harbour Primary School Basketball Competitions. 2021 Primary School Basketball is played on Tuesday nights. Games are played at Eventfinda Stadium, or occasionally AUT or Massey University (Albany).

Trials are run before the season commences to allocate teams based on skill level for Years 4-6. Years 2-3 are mixed ability-based teams. There are usually around 7 children per team. We ensure all children have an opportunity to join a team. All games are 30 minutes in duration.

The committment

Teams are coached and managed by parents. Each team generally has one practice per week at school. We are also fortunate to have Donna Crampin who has coached basketball at Bayfield school for many years to assist teams without a coach.
