St Norbert College introduced its Specialised Basketball Program in 2006. The program is available to boys and girls in Years 7 to 12 who wish to pursue excellence in the sport of basketball. Unique in the Catholic education system, the program now caters for about 100 basketball players.
Supplementing the holistic education provided by the College, the Specialised Basketball Program at St Norbert College aims to develop physical skills and fitness, teamwork, interpersonal skills and knowledge of sport officiating and coaching.
Students enrolled in the Specialised Basketball Program will represent St Norbert College. Continued development through club and association basketball competitions is expected. Teams will also be entered in interschool competitions, School Sport WA (SSWA) competitions and Associated and Catholic Colleges (ACC) competitions. Senior students training sessions will be focused on competing and excelling at the Australian National Schools Tournament.
Students enrolled in the Specialised Basketball Program are expected to be nominating for Western Australian Basketball League (WABL) programs at their nominated association.
The program regularly produces players who compete at Western Australian Basketball League (WABL) level and provides accredited pathways towards WABL, State Basketball League (SBL) teams and US College Basketball. St Norbert College players frequently gain selection in the WABL All-Stars and Associated Catholic Colleges (ACC) All-Star teams.
