  • Competition Fees will be $235 per player. All players must have an active Annual Membership to Basketball NSW & Newcastle Basketball, which will be included during the registration process if you do not currently have annual membership.
  • All players must play their age group according to their date of birth, unless a special request is submitted for consideration. 
  • We will be holding trials for players wanting to play in Division 1 (see dates below), with remaining teams determined through paper grading and/or player friend requests where possible. Please include information when you register under special requests if you are wanting to play with certain friends and we will try and accommodate where possible. It is very hard to make changes once teams have been sorted, so please provide this information when you register.

  • Our training court allocations are at Newcastle Basketball Stadium on a Sunday afternoon, and Macquarie College on a Monday afternoon/evening. Once our teams and coaches are sorted, we will work with our coaches to work out the exact timing of each team training.
