Competition Changes

There are a few small changes that players and parents need to know when registering in the competition for 2021.

  • Competition Fees will be $235 per player regardless of what club you play for. All players must have an active Annual Membership to Basketball NSW & Newcastle Basketball.
  • Players will be allocated once to the competition, then once nominations have closed players will be considered and invited to play in a second competition.
  • All representative sides will only be allowed to enter in the age group above where space is available or to create an even number of teams in the Division 1 competition.
  • All Junior Representative Players must be playing in the Winter Club Competition to qualify for their representative team. If players seek an exemption, they must send an email to martin@newcastlebasketball.com.au and elyse@newcastlebasketball.com.au outlining their reasons. This will be assessed on a case by case basis and for extenuating circumstances only.
  • In 2021 all players must nominate to play in their age group according to their date of birth. When registering, players may seek an exemption to play in the competition above but will not be allowed in the competition below.  This again will be assessed on a case by case basis and for extenuating circumstances only. You will be notified after registrations have closed and once teams have been formed if this is a possibility.
  • Each club will be limited to the following number of transfers: A club can accept 2 Representative Players per division per age group per gender. If you decide to transfer between clubs, your request will have to be approved by the club you leave to ensure nothing is outstanding.
  • State/National or Hunter Representative Players in Division 1 and 2 must play in the Division 1 competition for their respective club.
  • All clubs have agreed to a points-based system when allocating players to teams. Whilst they will consider friendship groups and requests, please note that the clubs may be restricted due to this new allocation system.
  • Players will only be deemed allocated to a club once competition fees have been paid in full and any transfer requests if required has been completed.
