Gold Coast Invitational

Hillcrest Christian College warmly welcomes you to the 2020 GOLD COAST INVITATIONAL (GCI). The tournament was first established in 2014 and has undergone significant growth over the last five years to become the largest school tournament on the Gold Coast.

The holiday lifestyle that the Gold Coast has to offer is a bonus for any touring teams and provides the ideal backdrop for this event. In 2019 the College has begun working closely with Gold Coast Basketball to ensure the best possible facilities and management is offered to school teams.
