Some other key information:

  • All players will be allocated to 1 team as per their age group from their date of birth.
  • Games will be played across three venues: Newcastle Basketball Stadium, Macquarie College and Hunter Sports High. The draw will rotate teams through these venues.
  • A singlet will be loaned to each player at the start of the season and must be returned at the end of the season. These singlets are owned by Newcastle Basketball and may incur a $50 fee if lost or not returned. Playing shorts will be available for purchase (as well as other merchandise), more information to come soon.
  • We rely heavily on our volunteer coaches and managers to ensure our season runs smoothly. For our coaches, please complete a Coach EOI form to express your interest: https://forms.gle/GTaZBcgHsAVKmKG19 For managers, please email or message us to let us you know you are interested in managing a team and we will be in touch after team allocation.
