2022 All-Star Basketball Squad

2021 All-Star Basketball Squad

2020 All-Star Basketball Squad


An Inter-association "All-Stars" competition in Basketball was introduced in 2014 and was originally held between representative teams from School Sport WA - Government schools (SSWA) and the Associated and Catholic Colleges of WA (ACC). In 2020, IGSSA WA joined the competition to make it a tri-association challenge, and the competition now showcases the best talent in our Secondary Schools Students.

The ACC is a sporting association for Associated and Catholic schools, currently managing 89 member schools. SSWA represent students from all WA government schools and IGSSA is an independent girls’ schools’ association comprising of 8 member schools.  All three organisations work on selecting their strongest side to represent their association.  For a player to qualify is a very special achievement as they compete against players from other schools both in the metropolitan and regional areas for team selection.

Whilst IGSSA WA are a small association in comparison to our rivals, we are a force to be reckoned with. To nominate for an IGSSA All-Star team, a player must receive an invitation to nominate through their own school. To meet criteria for nomination, students must be in Years 10-12, have approval of the Director of Sport in their school, and actively represent and support their School in the IGSSA Sporting Program.



The IGSSA All-Star team played a fantastic tournament in 2022. In their first game against a polished SSWA team, the opposition got off to a flying start and outscored the IGSSA team to hold an 8 point lead into the break. The IGSSA team came out firing in the second half and outscored the SSWA team, getting within a point in the last 20 seconds of the match, but a foul in the dying seconds saw the SSWA team convert to come out on top by 3 points (42-39). In the second game against the ACC team, IGSSA had the momentum and got our to an early lead. As the match went on, the cohesiveness in the team just built, and IGSSA won the match comfortably 52 - 33. With IGSSA and SSWA at 1 win each, the final match between the ACC and SSWA would determine the winner of the tournament. The SSWA proved too strong for the ACC team, winning 43-20.
