    Basketball 2021

    Registrations are open between March 8th and March 19th. 

    All you need to do to register for basketball, is to pay the initial fee for social basketball of $125.  This can be done via internet banking 030726 -0476403-00 Ref Student ID and Basketball, if internet banking is not possible then pay at the finance office by the 19th March. College House students can see the finance office to have their fees invoiced by contacting the finance office.

    If you are in a Premier team,  junior or senior,  you must register. You will be invoiced for the difference between the money paid on registration and the fee payable for your grade.

    There will still be the opportunity to register social teams so that you can play with your mates. To register a social team you must fill out a form, which you can obtain from Mr Benn or Dr Smith, from the office between A10 & B10. All players on your team list must be registered prior to returning the form or the team will not be entered. 


    Teams will consist of ten players that play on a Friday night at varying times at Arena Manawatu.

    The cost per student is:

    Premier A                 $200 (The Premier A team play in the Mens league on Wednesday and the Squad plays in the premier boys' grade on Friday)

    Development  $155

    Junior A                    $185 (Players will play in the premier boys grade and Junior premier)

    Senior Social           $125

    Junior Social           $125

    Junior Premier        $145

    Singlets and shorts are purchased separately through the uniform shop. Students who already own these items will not need to purchase them again. The basketball shorts are the same as those used in hockey and football. The Basketball Association has made the use of mouth guards compulsory in all competitions. Players will not be permitted to take the court without a mouth guard.



    Palmerston North Boys’ High School teams do not default. It is expected that once students are placed in a team, they commit to that team. If players are unavailable they must make arrangements with their team manager. 

    Basketball is a very popular sport at PNBHS. Our teams compete in all of the boys competitions on Friday nights as well as the local men's A grade.
