Irish Schools Basketball was reorganized in 1984, with the Championship, based like the GAA, on a regional knockout followed by All-Ireland knockout basis, with an All-Ireland League and Cup, with the League based along the lines of Regional Leagues, followed by All-Ireland Playoffs and Finals in the National Basketball Arena, in Tymon, Tallaght, Dublin 24.

In 2003 the Irish Schools Basketball Association (Boys) and Schoolgirls Basketball Association of Ireland were brought under one organisation, Basketball Ireland Post-Primary Schools. The Senior (Under 18) and Junior / Cadette (Under 15) grades were renamed the Under 19 and Under 16 grades.

St. David’s Greystones (Wicklow) won the Cadette (U15) All-Ireland League title three years in succession from 1991 to 1994. Presentation Castleisland in Kerry have also won it three times.
