UniSport pushes for creation of University Basketball League
UniSport Australia announced the proposed creation of the University Basketball League (UBL). Endorsed by Basketball Australia, and supported by the respective State Basketball Associations, the inaugural UBL tournament would be run from April to August 2020, over 10 weeks.
Both men’s and women’s competitions would be played across four regions, culminating in a finals weekend to determine Australia’s number one basketball university. The creation of the UBL would also provide unique work integrated learning opportunities that will enhance the students’ academic development with practical experience.
On the proposal, UniSport Chief Executive Mark Sinderberry stated “basketball is played by more university students than any other sport on campus in Australia, and this proposed league would provide a unique pathway for student-athletes with the innovative work integrated learning opportunities that would directly complement their learning pathways as student-athletes."
"This pathway would also recognise the significant role student engagement plays in wellbeing and positive learning outcomes. In addition, it provides a wonderful opportunity for universities to capture the pride and connection students past and present enjoy through their university careers.”
Universities across Australia are invited to express their interest in being involved in the proposed inaugural UBL tournament commencing in 2020.
