23-24 July Duty Draw

Reminder that all draws get posted to this page as they are released


  • FAQs – We have received a few questions over the past few weeks, so are posting the regular ones we get in case other teams have the same ones:
    • What is the Format for my Grade? – these are all online for each competition here 2022-Winter-Club-Formats
    • Sub Grade Formats? – There is no grand final for BU13, BU15 and BU17 sub-grades, and these competitions will finish up the weekend before the A grade’s final (August 13). Remember – the focus on these grades is to give teams as many competitive games as possible
    • When do we Play? – Our weeks of play document is here 2022-CBA-weeks-of-play
    • How are Standings Calculated? – We have to manually check any ties in our standings, and calculate them according to the “Classification of Teams” which is detailed on page 78 in the Official FIBA Rules (one addition we have – if a two-team series is tied after applying the FIBA tiebreakers, the team that won the final game between the teams gets the tiebreaker)

If you didn’t see the end of the Boys’ U17 National Championship – Make sure to check this out (or watch it above)!
