Glebe Basketball development commenced as a welfare initiative of Glebe High School in 1990, with basketball programs originally involving only the High school, and through the Primary Links Program, Inner West primary school children.

In 1997 the program was extended to the whole Inner West community becoming Glebe Basketball Association, an independent association continuing throughout the years to provide basketball facilities, competitions, and clinics to the youth of our Inner-Western suburbs.

GBA Sponsors

GBA appreciates the generous support and sponsorship of the following: The Nagshead Hotel, and City of Sydney Council.

For a community organisation such as Glebe Basketball to thrive, the ongoing support and contributions of our local business community and councils have been essential.

We are very fortunate to have a number of organisations who are sensitive to local youth and community needs.

Learn To Play

LTP occurs every Saturday from 9.00am

Our very popular and fun filled sessions run every Saturday morning at the Peter Forsyth Auditorium during school Term time.

In 1997 Bede Murphy, GBA Development Officer, seeing the need to develop basketball in the Inner West created a concept and named it "Learn to Play" a skill based program which invited young people to step up and learn the skills and fun of basketball.

A catchy phrase, it was soon appropriated by many basketball Associations, even Basketball NSW. However, the unique atmosphere and quality of GBA's Learn to Play cannot be copied or duplicated.

Because of the popularity of GBA Learn to Play we have now added an earlier time slot and divided the groups by age:

9.00am - 9.45am: U9 Games

9.45am - 10.30am: U9 & U13 combined fundamentals skills session.

10.30am - 11.00am: U13 Games

Venue: Peter Forsyth Auditorium, Francis St., Broadway.

Cost: $15/ session

Player Registration: $30/ annum

Ages: 5-13 years
