The Sapphires are U17 Women’s national representative team in 5v5 basketball, they represent Australia in FIBA events such as Oceania and World Championships.

The Sapphires have a rich history in such events with Australia coming away with the gold medal and 3 players in the tournament All Star 5, Kate Deeble, Kelsey Rees and Gemma Potter, at the last U17 event the 2019 Oceania Championship.

FIBA has postponed all such events since due to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, we look forward to being able to get this team back on the international stage upon the resumption of competition for this age group.
