After the teams are accepted into the competition, a link with information regarding the competition will be sent to delegates directly, for onforwarding to players. Players MUST use this link to register themselves into the team. Failure to register into a team may mean you will not be able to take the court.

Will there be a break for during school holidays?

Yes, the competition will break for the NSW public school holiday periods. Teams that play on public holidays generally receive a credit for their games missed if their games are not rescheduled to another night.

Will overflow games still be played on a Friday?

Yes, for select age groups.

 

How much does it cost to play?

Annual Registration:

Each player is required to pay a Basketball NSW registration fee which provides injury insurance for a 12-month period.

The cost for this is as follows:

  • Under 8 – $65
  • 8 years – 11 years – $85
  • 12 years – 17 years – $115
  • 18 years and over – $135

Throughout the online registration process this will show as two separate amounts which will total the amount listed above. More information is on the Basketball NSW website.

Active kids’ vouchers can be used to contribute towards annual registration costs.

 

Team Nominations:

Each team will need to pay a nomination fee when entering a team nomination:

Under 7’s and Under 9’s – $60 per team

Under 11’s-Under 19’s – $90 per team

Team nomination fee is only refunded if there is a late entry, and the team cannot participate or the team pulls out after the first week of competition. 

 

Game fees:

Each player will be required to pay the following game fees for the competition:

Junior: $10 per player per game invoiced up front for the entire season.

Senior: $10.50 per player per game invoiced up front for the entire season.

All fees are due by the end 2nd Week of competition. We are reinforcing a strict – no pay no play policy. Failure to pay will mean that the player is unfinancial and will not be able to participate until payment has been made, or a payment plan has been communicated. Players will be individually invoiced directly by our accounts department.

Please note: Individual players who were non-financial from the previous competition with monies owing (outside of any installment arrangements) will not be able to play at all, until this is debt has been paid. This includes any monies owing for representative or other CCB programs.

Active kids’ vouchers can be used to contribute towards game fees.

Previously we have paid game fees per team, why has this changed?

Previously there was a team nomination fee of $80 per team then game fees were charged per game, which ranged from $60-$80 per game. CCB has implemented a new system, that works off a per player model. These game fees will be invoiced by our accounts team direct to all players.

 

Will teams be charged a forfeit fee if the forfeit is caused by their team?

Yes.

We’d love to see as many games happen as possible, while keeping all our members safe and healthy, but we know that throughout the season teams will be unable to play due to COVID. As such, we have reviewed our forfeiture policy and from 17th January until 8th April 2022, we will trial an additional policy:

  • Any teams forfeiting for COVID related reasons with a minimum 4-hour notice period will be fined a $50 forfeiture fee per forfeited match
  • Any teams forfeiting for COVID related reasons with a less than 4 hours notice will be fined a $70 forfeiture fee per forfeited match
  • Any teams forfeiting without providing notice to the Competitions Manager will be fined $140 per forfeited match as per the current forfeit structure
  • Any forfeiture fines will be required to be paid prior to the start of the next game for the team. 50% of unnotified will be given to the team that had received the forfeit

We will review this policy again post the trial period.

 

How many players should I have on my team?

Teams are required to have a minimum of 5 players and a maximum of 10 players.

 

How many grades will there be?

This depends on how many teams enter the competition. But as a general guideline, there is an A grade, B grade and C grade and possibly D grade.

 

What if we nominate into the wrong grade?

The first four weeks will be grading, so we will move teams up or down grades if required after the initial 4 weeks of the competition. We want our players to enjoy the competition and not feel like they are up against teams who have a vastly different skill level.

 

When do team nominations open for the Summer Competition?

Team nomination are typically up 6 weeks prior to the commencement date. However, for the 2021-22 Summer competition, these timeframes have varied, as our priority is to return to play for 1st November 2021.

 

How do I submit a team nomination?

Team nominations can be submitted via our website through the gameday portal. PLEASE READ ALL INFORMATION ON GAMEDAY NOMINATION FORM BEFORE SUBMITTING TEAM.

 

What if I don’t have a team?

If you don’t have a team, complete our Looking for a team form. We will then try to match you up with other players or put you in contact with other teams who are looking for a player. 

What if I am brand new to basketball?

Welcome to the sport – everyone needs to start somewhere! We recommend enrolling into one of our development programs such as our Aussie Hoops or Rising Rebels sessions. These programs run each school term and are conducted by our team of fantastic coaches. The programs teach players the skills that will benefit them in our domestic competition. More information about our development classes is here.

Active kids’ vouchers can be used to contribute towards our development programs.
