Basketball Victoria is implementing a new registration platform – PlayHQ, a system that is purpose built for basketball, by basketball.

Reasons for this change include:
• The need for a modern, user-friendly and reliable system
• A system to help with a new state-wide individual registration process
• Adherence to new data and privacy legislation
• To assist with a better understanding of participants
• To provide clubs, associations and participants with a personalised and better experience

Change in fee structure
Currently, players in Metropolitan Melbourne pay for their Basketball Victoria affiliation fees indirectly via
team or club fees, of which a component is passed on via the club (if applicable) and/or association to
Basketball Victoria. Country associations currently register individually. For anyone registering to a season
commencing in 2020 – the fee will be paid directly to Basketball Victoria at the point of registration to a
competition season at your club or association. This results in a more transparent and affordable fee
structure as participants will only need to pay once when they register per 365-day period, irrespective of
how many teams or associations they play in – all in the one PlayHQ profile.

The individual Basketball Victoria affiliation/licence are as follows (when registering to any 2020 season):
• $25p.p – Child / Junior (17 and under)
• $39p.p – Adult / Senior (18 or over)

The process to register is very simple, just set up a PlayHQ profile and complete your registration via the
link provided on your club/association website or by visiting
