midnight basketball Darwin is back!

Midnight Basketball is a youth social inclusion program using basketball as a youth engagement tool to for at risk youth aged 12-18, during peak times when there is minimal support services available. 

Friday and Saturday nights are the highest risk period of the week for teenagers, a time when most other services and activities are not available. Midnight Basketball is a fun yet disciplined program combining sport and education to fill this gap.


Midnight Basketball Tournament 4 runs until June 17 at Darwin Basketball Stadium.

Even though registrations have closed, everyone is welcome to come down, have a feed and cheer the players on.

Anyone with any skill or interest can apply to volunteer - you just need to be over 18 and have a valid Ochre Card.
