Could you please explain where the court is?

All sessions are at the Indoor Court in St Ives High School, enter via the main gate on Yarrabung Road. No parking on site – please use street parking only.
We will have our flag at the entrance, follow the path straight through the school to the gym / if you can’t see us, you will more than likely hear us.

I don’t know how many sessions to sign up for or when, what do you suggest?

NSBL is a flexible program and you are welcome to sign up to as many sessions as you like. A number of our members do two sessions, some do a Sunday + one after school session, some do two after school sessions and no Sunday. Ultimately, it is what suits you and your availability.


I want my child to play basketball but I am not sure if they will enjoy the sessions, can they trial a session before we sign up?

Of course! NSBL is a flexible, friendly and approachable program. You are invited to contact us for a FREE trial.  


We missed a session last week, can we do a make-up session?

Of course! let us know when you can make it.


Do you run holiday camps?

Every school holidays, there is at least two days of basketball (9am – 3pm). Due to the camps popularity, there is always limited space. Camps are open to school grades K – 10.
Registrations open approximately one month out from any camp.


Why is NSBL in St Ives?

Ku-ring-gai basketball is limited to four surrounding venues: Crows Nest, Thornleigh, Warriewoood and Ryde. St Ives High School offers the use of their courts and is a more centralised venue for those in Lindfield, Killara, Roseville, Pymble, Gordon, Turramurra and of course St Ives.
