Spartans and Lady Spartans

The Southern Districts Spartans compete in the NBL1 competition introduced for an inaugural 2021 season. Our Spartans and Lady Spartans had an illustrious history in the former Queensland Basketball League (QBL) program. Our association is the most decorated program in Queensland history with a record 17 state championships across our Men’s and Women’s programs since 1986. Southern Districts have had players from QBL play in the NBA, NBL, WNBL, US College system and represent Australia and New Zealand on multiple levels. Our regular season is now underway and tickets can be purchased via the link below:

2022 Spartans Head Coach

Aja Parham-Ammar

Southern Districts Spartans are proud to announce the resigning of Aja Parham-Ammar as Head Coach of our NBL1 North Spartans Men for 2022 season.

After a successful 2021 campaign, which saw the Spartans Men return to the playoffs for the first time in a number of years, having Aja return for 2022 was a priority for the Association.

“I’m excited to be back! 2021 was a tough year for everyone with so many stop/starts, so I think the competition as a whole is going to be primed for a massive year in 2022” said Aja.

“Last season certainly threw some curve balls at us. Building a roster while navigating the ever-changing border restrictions, coupled with the season disruptions brought about by COVID, were challenges out of our control. As a group I was really impressed with how our guys went about their business every week, did what was asked, and came together as a team” reflected Parham-Ammar.

“For 2022 I’m aiming to build a roster that brings a solid mix of experience, energy, athleticism and leadership.  We’ll be running the floor so I need guys who know how to work and want to work” said Aja.

After entering the NBL1 competition in 2021 as the first female Head Coach, Southern Districts are thrilled to be able to welcome Aja back.
