Program Overview

The QIS Basketball program works within Queensland’s Basketball Association’s calendar and provides talented young players with challenging development training programs to help their progression through their chosen sport.

Players train twice a week throughout September to December with high quality local basketball coaches, athletic coaches and young youth players undertaking sports coaching traineeships.

Players also have the opportunity to experience guest training sessions from the QIS and participate in matches against other development institutes.

A scholarship levy fee does apply to all athletes who are successful in becoming a QIS scholarship athlete. This scholarship fee covers the full cost of participation in the program including, but not limited to, training, education, materials and the QIS apparel kit.

Additional costs may apply for travel and/or accommodation at some stages throughout the program, though athletes and their parents will receive information regarding any additional costs well in advance of any such events or opportunities.

The scholarship fee must be paid in full prior to commencement of the scholarship program, unless a payment plan has been arranged and signed-off by QIS management.
