The Basketball Pathway

ACBA COMMUNITY LEAGUE

The ACBA (Adelaide Community Basketball Association) is a competition league. For younger players, this is usually the next step after Aussie Hoops or our Under 8 “Cubs” program, although some kids may start here. It is also a great option for older players or families who don’t want to commit to the extra demands of District basketball.​
