University Basketball League
The University Basketball League was established in 2020 by UniSport Australia, with La Trobe University becoming a foundation member for the inaugural season.
Students who are selected compete in an eight-week nationwide home and away season against other universities around Australia. In 2022, the UBL competition expanded to include 11 universities, with La Trobe University's Women's team becoming the inaugural University Basketball League champions after going through the season undefeated on their way to the title.
The University Basketball League is endorsed by Basketball Australia as a pathway for female and male athletes looking to establish both academic and athletic excellence in Australia. Our UBL teams are classified as high performance sport, where athletes are selected based on their level of experience and current playing level.
To be considered eligible to play in either the Men's or Women's La Trobe University UBL team, you must play at one of the following levels:
- Big V
Our Men's and Women's teams are led by professional coaches and students have access to our world-class Sports Performance Hub. We also work closely with local clubs to ensure that the demands of existing club training, games and university studies will not compromise prior basketball commitments.
