WABL

ABOUT THE PROGRAM

The Flames WABL Basketball Program currently comprises of 21 teams, both male and female in grades under 12/ 14/ 16/ 18/ 20. Our teams compete against associations throughout the state each Sunday within the Western Australia Basketball League (WABL). This is an elite representative competition.

This is the competition from which Western Australia state representatives are identified and continues to be the corner stone from where NBL1 men and women’s players emerge from.

Basketball WA (BWA) has recently introduced a grading system, expanding it each year. At present grading occurs February – March for U12/ U14/ U16/ U18 boys and girls teams. Grading has allowed an increase in the amount of WA Basketball League divisions in each age group. This is enabling more player participation across the state.

Flames also have two senior teams who compete in the NBL1 Division 1 Womens and Mens competition which runs along side both our NBL1 and WABL programs giving great development opportunities to all involved.

For the Flames, being involved in WABL see’s over 300 home games held at the Mike Barnett Sports Complex between April – September, bringing visitors from all across the state into our stadium.
