The 8 round 2022 GCJBL Summer Competition is kicking off in October and running through till late November.
Please read all the information below before beginning the registration process.
The purpose of the Gold Coast Junior Basketball League (GCJBL) is to provide a competition pathway for junior basketball players on the Gold Coast.
The GCJBL consists of 14 clubs: The Central Stars, Burleigh Blades, Gold Coast Celtics, Heat Basketball Club, PBC Magpies, Northern Nets, Pacific Pines Panthers, Somerset Spartans (Somerset College students only), TSS Suns (TSS students only), Southern Coast Slammers, Varsity Vipers, Kings Basketball Club (Kings Christian College students only), Lindisfarne Lions (Lindisfarne College students only), and the Amigos Basketball Club.
During the course of the summer season the Central Stars will play against these clubs.
Below are the proposed dates for the Summer Season rounds.
Please be aware, Gold Coast Basketball may need to change some dates due to outside factors. The Central Stars endeavours to inform all players of alterations in the schedule, as soon as practical, after becoming aware.
As you can see below, some Friday games are being held on both Saturday and Sunday. Where a round states 2 dates, this does not mean the team will be playing on both dates, they will only play on one of the days.
Also please note the Sunday game in the last round for the Saturday competition.
Please ensure that your player can make all of the games proposed before proceeding with the registration process.
We want all our players to have a great playing experience, and a key factor of this is team bonding. When players are continually missing games, it impacts the whole team dynamic, which is not only evident in the gameplay but also the players attitudes toward each other.
All game fixtures are issued by Gold Coast Basketball. The Central Stars have no input to the location, court, time, or day that the games will take place.
The Central Stars will receive the fixtures for the season in the first week of October. Fixture details will be posted to the TeamApp as soon as practicable.
Gold Coast Basketball reserve the right to change the game fixtures at any time. The Central Stars endeavours to inform all players of alterations in the fixtures as soon as practical after becoming aware.
Game fixtures are also available to view from the Gold Coast Basketball website.

The Central Stars use the Stack TeamApp for the majority of our club communication.
Each team has a dedicated section that will display their team game and training schedule and a private chat function. There is also a RSVP function that will allow you to inform your coach and team manager that you will be at training and games. It is very important that all players RSVP for training and games as it allows the coach to plan their training sessions, and also organise replacement players should we need to make up game numbers.
It is the mandatory that at least one profile is created for each player. Please note, multiple profiles may be set up for each player. For example – 2 parent profiles can be attached to a players, as well as the player having their own profiled. Details for downloading and creating a profile will be supplied when your player is placed into their team.
As part of our requirements to enter teams into the Summer Season competition run by GCJBL, we are required to supply a person to operate the score bench during games.
A roster system will be employed to assign one players family to the duty for each round and will be released before round one of the competition.
The scoring system supplied is an easy to use system and the instruction manual can be found on the TeamApp. Hands on training will also be supplied on request.
Please contact your team manager to organise a training session or if you need to adjust the score bench schedule.
Alternatively, for a $10.00 donation to the club, we will organise a replacement to stand in during your allocated scoring week.
It is important to note that player numbers with the Central Stars are strictly limited. We have a limited capacity and we reserve the right to close registration at any time.
We are also restricted as to the numbers of teams we can field by the number of coaching positions we can fill. If we cannot secure a coach for the team, unfortunately we will have to forfeit their place in the competition. We will do all in our power to secure enough coaches, but as stated above, we rely on the assists of volunteers.
If you can assist the club with coaching please contact Shannon at firstname.lastname@example.org or on 0423 229 291.
