Applications are now open

Basketball at John Septimus Roe Anglican Community School (JSRACS) has moved from strength to strength over the years, with continued success in both the Associated and Catholic Colleges (ACC) and Champion Schools competitions. In 2019, we introduced a Specialist Basketball Program for Year 9 students as a means of fostering basketball opportunities for talented players. The aim is for the Program to grow and develop across all year groups in 2020 and beyond.

Supplementing the holistic education provided by the school, the Specialised Basketball Program at JSRACS aims to develop physical skills and fitness, teamwork and interpersonal skills. It will focus on improving the player’s individual skill set, their overall understanding of the game and basketball concepts that will enable students to compete successfully in basketball at the highest level. With specialist individual and team coaching sessions within the school timetable, students will grow as basketball players and experience high-level fitness, speed and agility training that will accelerate the leap to becoming an elite player.

JSRACS is offering scholarships to current Year 8 students entering Year 9 in 2021. The scholarship will commence in 2021 when students are in Year 9 and will continue until the students graduate in 2023/24.
