The Donvale Primary School competition is a great way for children to start learning about basketball, while playing with school friends and representing our school. It is an excellent way to introduce your children to competitive team sport. Children who play at Primary School level can progress to playing Club basketball.
Primary School teams compete in the Donvale-Doncaster Primary School competition which includes teams from schools within the district. The competition is organised by the Doncaster District Community Youth Club. Each age group comprises a number of grades to enable teams of similar ability to play against each other.
