HASCA Basketball Teams

This slideshow requires JavaScript.


Our homeschool basketball teams compete each year in local competitions – North Shore YMCA and North Harbour Basketball – against other schools and club teams.

Teams (primary through senior) are coached and managed by homeschooling parents and graduated students.

Most of our players come out of the Homeschool Basketball Skills Programmes which run weekly on a Thursday at the North Shore YMCA (juniors 5-10yrs 2-3pm, and senior players 11-18yrs 1-2pm); the Homeschool Basketball Skills Programme is a great training ground for enthusiastic basketballers and has been running for many, many years!

HASCA’s senior & junior primary basketball coordinator for 2019 is Selena Spottiswoode. Intermediate coordinator for 2019 is Nina Lawgun. You are welcome to email Selena or Nina via HASCA: hasca.nz@gmail.com.
