Excellence Discipline: Basketball Excellence

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 into a student’s weekly timetable with both practical and theory sessions, allowing students to focus both on their academic success and 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.
