Basketball

HIGHLY RESPECTED NATIONWIDE

The Saints have a proud history of excellence on the basketball court which can be seen in our consistent ranking in the top 5 schools in the country over the past number of seasons.

St Charles College fields twenty basketball teams each season with up to 250 boys competing against other schools each week. We have top class facilities with four outdoor courts and the Samke Khumalo Arena which is often filled to capacity when the 1st Team plays at home.

Our Saints teams also travel every year to compete outside the province at National tournaments with the 1st team and U15As travelling to the St John’s Tournament and the U16A team to the St Stithians Tournament. Here our teams get to compete against the top schools in South Africa as well as neighbouring countries.

The Basketball program is led by the Basketball Specialist Mr Craig Gilchrist (SA Men and Current SA Coach) and the 1st team is coached by Mr Darren Holcomb (SA Men).
