About Us

Our History


Carina Cobras is a non-profit club, run solely by volunteers, dedicated to the development and increased participation in basketball for children and young adults.

The Carina Cobras was formed in 1982 and was a foundation member of the Southern Districts Basketball Association Ltd (SDBAL), one of the largest basketball associations in Queensland.   The Carina Cobras has consistently been one of the largest and most successful clubs in the SDBAL and was the last of the SDBAL foundation clubs participating until May of 2023.  

From July 2023, Carina Cobras began its next phase with the newly formed Eastside Basketball Association.   

Carina Cobras fields teams in all age groups - from under 8s mixed teams through to Youth Girls & Boys (under 21).

Carina Cobras players always feature heavily in Basketball Queensland (BQ) junior representative teams and we have seen many of our juniors go on to play senior representative basketball at both regional (NBL1) and state level.

Cobras has also had several members go on to successful basketball careers in the National Basketball League, college basketball in USA & the 2021 Olympic team.

Our Mission


Our objective is to provide a well run organisation which makes basketball available to boys and girls of all age groups and at 

all skill levels. We seek to:

  • Promote the game of Basketball in an encouraging environment - for the joy of playing basketball as well as endeavouring to constantly improve the skill levels of our players and coaches.

  • Provide opportunities for children and adults to play and enjoy basketball - for both those who want to play basketball as a social sport and those who want to take their sport to a representative level.

  • Encourage the development of players and coaches - to raise the overall players standard we are continuously developing our coaches through access to formal coaching courses and encouraging players to become coaches through their basketball journey and once their playing days are completed.

  • Promote good sportsmanship and develop both club and team spirit amongst our players and coaches.
