Adelaide Community League


The Adelaide Community Basketball Association (ACBA) is a competitive junior competition ideal for players starting out, or for older, more experienced players who simply want to play with friends, or who don't want the full-on commitment of District basketball.

It is an excellent, well-organised competition that for starters is often the next step after Aussie Hoops or our Under 8 “Cubs” program.

The ACBA competition consists of two, separate 17 game seasons - Summer (Term 4 and Term 1) and Winter (Terms 2 & 3).

Age groups are Under 8/10 (mixed) and Under 12/14/16/18 (separate girls and boys comps in each age group).

In 2023/24 West Adelaide will field about 25 teams in ACBA competitions. 

Players are welcome to join an existing team or join with your friends and make a new team - we will do our best to accommodate all requests.

For Bearcats ACBA teams and players, the program details are:

  • 1 x game weekly (provided by ACBA) which will be played on Saturdays, with the younger ages in the mornings and older ages in the afternoons

  • 1 x 1 hour training session provided by the West Adelaide Bearcats with club coaches

  • Games played at stadiums in the northwest or northeast of Adelaide

  • Cost: Player Registration fee (approx. $36), Game Fee (approx. $10 per game), Club Training & Team Registration (approx. $200 per player per season)

  • You can use school vouchers for part reimbursement of the Club fees - see here for how they work

  • Playing Uniform (please do not order until Tracey has confirmed you are in a team): reversible red & black Bearcats singlet with number $55; black shorts $20; numbering only (for any existing unnumbered reversible) $16.50 - sizing chart for singlets and shorts here and online ordering and payment form here
