The Young Indigenous Basketball Academy is a skills, mentorship and support program designed to assist in the development of basketball pathways and support improvements in education engagement, employment opportunities and outcomes for young Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander basketballers.

YIBA provides access to elite coaching and playing pathways for its members, as well as supporting school-based academic and sporting outcomes with targeted coaching and mentoring.

The YIBA will consist of two squads of 13-16 year old boys and girls, with a minimum of 15 players in each squad. 

We are currently seeking interest from those who are interested in joining.
