ELIGIBILITY CRITERIA (a link to the Team Selection Policy will be provided after registration)
Players are required to meet BBI eligibility requirements as outlined in the Junior rules –
3.2 Prerequisite for Brisbane Basketball Junior Capitals Representation
3.2.1 Any player who wishes to represent the Brisbane Basketball Junior Capitals in the representative season that commences after the Championship Season MUST:

  • be registered with BBI and a BBI Club and playing in the BBJBC Championship Season within their correct Age Group as per the calendar year
  • play a minimum of 50% of eligible games in the BBJBC Championship Season within their correct Age Group as per the calendar year

3.2.2 The ONLY exemption to Rule 3.2.1, which will also be assessed by the BBI General Manager, is when a player moves from a Queensland location outside a radius of 100 kilometre from the BBI office at Auchenflower, from a state outside of Queensland or from a country outside of Australia.  If an exemption is granted the player must immediately join a BBI Club.


Players who last played for another Association MUST have a Full Transfer from their previous association Approved by BQ PRIOR to Attending the first Trial. If this approval is not completed and provided to BBI prior to commencement of trials, the player will not be eligible to trial nor considered for selection. There may be a financial penalty from Basketball Queensland to an Association for a breach of their Player Transfer Policy and the player may be also be ineligible to play for any Association for up to 3 months. Therefore, please consider your personal circumstances carefully and if unsure please contact our office and Visit Basketball Queensland Website for Transfer Policy and appropriate forms – BQ Player Transfer Form

Prior to the 2017/18 representative season, BBI implemented an additional consideration for rep selection eligibility (outlined above) as part of the Associations commitment to support it’s members. As a consequence, BBI no longer accepts Permission-to-Train forms for players who represented a different association and are now considering selection to a Brisbane Capitals Rep Team. Players who have transferred to BBI will be granted permission to train for other associations if they desire to be considered for selection at other Associations.




Parents/Guardians, whose child is unable to attend one or all of the above trial events, but still wishes to be considered for selection, should complete a representative trial exemption request form (links below). For all exemption requests involving prolonged injury or illness please refer section 6C of the Team Selection Policy.
