Help Us Celebrate 50 years

The 2018 Schick Championships will celebrate 50 years of secondary schools basketball when its held in at the Central Energy Trust Arena, Palmerston North, 1-6 October.  The inaugural event was in 1968. 

Basketball New Zealand is calling for administrators, players, coaches and officials from those early years to send us their stories and memorabilia, which we can use to showcase the history of New Zealand secondary schools basketball.


Photos, awards, banners, old uniforms, programmes, trophies, videos - we'd like to put these on display at the Schick Championships. Perhaps you'd like to write about your experience playing in those early years? Feel free to submit us a story or some anecdotes along with what you have. So, clean out the back of your cupboards, those boxes in the garage, sort through the school trophy cabinets - we want to hear from you!
