EDJBA Junior Domestic

Welcome to the Bulleen Boomers Junior Domestic program. The Bulleen Boomers are the
2nd largest club within the EDJBA, and we pride ourselves on providing a strong competition
for your children to participate in.

COMPETITION (EDJBA) OVERVIEW

Our Junior Domestic teams compete in the Eastern District Junior Basketball Association
(EDJBA) competition which covers teams from a wide part of Eastern Melbourne (from Park
Orchards/Warrandyte in the east, Eltham in the north, Collingwood/Ivanhoe in the west,
Nunawading/Box Hill in the south). Games are played on Saturdays and start at 8:30 am,
with the last game at around 9:00pm. In general terms, the younger the age group, the
earlier in the day games are held. The U17 and U19 age groups are expected to be
available for games after 5.40pm and including the 7:20pm to 9:00pm game times. The

EDJBA organizes game fixtures to take into account the team compatibilities (e.g. a coach
may be coaching more than one team). The Winter Season runs from April 2021 to mid September 2021 (School Terms 2 2021 & Term 3 2021)

a family member/dependent and complete the registration.

If a PlayHQ Profile Account has already been set up for registration for previous season or to
another basketball competition (eg Primary School basketball or a senior domestic
competition) then the same PlayHQ Profile Account should be used for this and all other
registrations using PlayHQ

Please note the following:
• The parent/guardian email address used will form the login for all future registrations
for that child. Choose a personal email that is likely to be used long term rather than
a work or school email
• Another parent/guardian’s details can be added for each child
• Players over 18 should still be registered by a parent, otherwise parent/guardian
details will not be able to be entered and we won’t have contact details for parents

CUSTOM TEAMS / FRIENDSHIP TEAMS – Age groups U15 and Upwards

If you would like to be considered as a custom team or friendship team U15 and up
(minimum of 7 players preferably 8 no exceptions within the same age group) you will need
to note this on the registration form. You will also need to have your own designated coach
and team manager. The coach needs to fill out the ‘Intention to Coach’ form (available under
Junior Domestic – EDJBA Forms tab). Training and game day availability will be determined
based on the coach’s availability and requests from individual players will not be considered
for custom /friendship teams. The club has the option to add an eighth player if needed.
Please check all players date of births to see they all fall into the same age group.
All players need to reciprocate otherwise no guarantee they will be placed together. All
players in custom/ friendship teams need to register before the cut off date.
If all listed players are not registered by cut off date the club will add players to make up
numbers. Teams will not be juggled to accommodate late registrations.
No exceptions

COACHES

All our coaches are volunteers – generally former and current players, parents or older
siblings. The club is always looking for coaches if you would like to coach please fill out the
intention to coach form (available under Junior Domestic – EDJBA Forms tab) or email
juniordomestic@bulleenboomers.com.au
Players will not be placed in a team or places held unless registration is paid. (no
exceptions)

Game Day Availability:

All players in the U15, U17 and U19 age group are expected to be available for games from
5:40pm onwards. The EDJBA competition expects that you will be fixtured late games (i.e.
7:20pm to 9:00pm) for less than 50% of your games in one season.
All players in the U09 and U11 age groups are expected to be available for most game times
from 8:30am to 2.20pm

Requests & Preferences:
Although game time requests can be made on the registration form, the Club will use these
as a guide and will make every endeavour to facilitate these requests, however, please note
they are not guaranteed.
If you are not available all day a valid reason must be put on registration form otherwise
request will be ignored. (e.g. compulsory school sport & language school)
Restrictions on training or game times severely limits the teams for which a player can be
chosen. Often players are selected at a lower level because only lower level teams’ training
times suit them.
