Phoenix League is based in five (5) venues across Auckland and caters for players across the U15, U17 and U19 level. The league was founded as a means to provide more opportunities for young persons to participate in high level basketball as they build towards achieving Representative honours. Our new Player Pathway model now enables Phoenix League players to compete for representative team selections throughout the year. If a Phoenix League player is identified by our Talent Identification cohort, then that player is offered an opportunity to join their respective Representative Team Squad. This competitive "under dog" approach provides a benchmark for existing representative players to meet ABSL's desired attitude and commitment to Representative basketball.
Term One and Term Four Competition Format
In terms 1 & 4 ABSL host games on Saturday during the school term. Games are played under full FIBA rules with 7-minute stop clock quarters.
If there are not enough numbers in both girls/boys age groups, ABSL will review and look to combine age groups together.
E.g. U17/U19 boys or U17/U19 girls.
