Playing to win

Associations battle it out over seven tournaments, with the award going to the overall champion association based on State Championship results.

Competing to take home The Vince Hickey Shield

In the award’s illustrious 30 year existence, Townsville Basketball have been crowned overall champions an impressive 10 times, while Southern Districts have held the award nine times.

Points are allocated to Associations based on the overall ranking of all teams in their age group. Points are given to an Association only for their highest ranked team per age group and gender. The number of points awarded is determined by the number of teams who competed in that Championship - for example the U12 Girls consisted of 27 teams, therefore the Division 1 winning team was awarded 27 points.
