Basketball Excellence Program

Marsden State High School's Basketball Excellence Program is dedicated to providing every student with the opportunity to grow and develop through the game of basketball.  The goal is simple: help every student reach their full potential both on and off the court.  We believe in giving students the highest quality education and experience in the game of basketball, no matter their skill level.  We focus on developing the fundamentals, a strong fitness base and a high basketball IQ.  Every lesson aims to push student’s skill levels and game understanding higher through quality coaching and learning experiences that engages and challenges every athlete. 
Our Program incorporates basketball directing into a student’s weekly timetable with both practical and theory sessions, allowing students to focus both on their academic success and their basketball potential.
Students will have the opportunity to compete in Queensland Basketball Schools Championship Tournament, The Enable Tournament, Logan District Sport and Metropolitan Finals, as well as numerous training matches and trial games.  
At the core of the Basketball Program are the school’s values of persistence, pride and passion.  
Persistence: We encourage and assist students to rise to every challenge, to set high goals and then exceed them and never give anything less than their best.
Passion: We drive each athlete so their passion is for the greatness and their desire is to do their best while encouraging enthusiasm and energy to change, develop, improve and succeed.
Pride: We focus on developing respect for self, team and the school community and wear our Basketball Excellence uniform with pride.
