REGISTRATION PROCESS Registrations are via the Basketball Victoria PlayHQ system.

Please use an email that you will likely have long term (as in a personal one and not work or education), you will need this to log in to your account in the future. You are also able to add an additional parent to each child’s account if you wish. If a PlayHQ Profile Account has already been set up for registration for previous season or to another basketball competition (e.g., 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 register by Monday 21st February to get the early bird rate, standard registration from the 22nd February applies and closes on Monday 28th February Payments can be made via Visa or Mastercard. Please also note there will be a Basketball Victoria Player Licence fee which is a separate annual fee that BV now collect of $26 for players 17 and under and $40 for 18 and over, this covers their insurance and membership to BV for 12 months. This fee covers all competitions so if you have already paid it through Championship or Primary school you will not have to pay again unless it falls due before the end of season. If wanting to be considered to play up an age group, you must note this on your registration form and reason why otherwise you will be placed into age group according to your age.
