Terms 2 and 3 (Winter)

Inter-school basketball takes place on Tuesday (Thomson Trophy – Senior A), Friday evenings (CSS competition – Senior and Years 9–11 teams) or Saturday (CBA competition – U20, U17 and U15 sides). Year 9 teams play after school on Friday or in U15 sides on Saturday. Games are usually played in school gymnasiums.

All teams are managed by College staff and coached by external professionals. Several of the external coaches are linked with the Canterbury Rams.

House basketball is played at lunchtime in Terms 2 and 3.
