Domestic CompetitionsSenior Competition Changes
Waverley Basketball is excited to announce several significant changes occurring to senior domestic weekly competition over the next few seasons.
registration and playhq
Basketball Victoria (BV) has launched its much anticipated individual registration project: http://basketballvictoria.com.au/registration/
From January 1, 2020, every player must visit PlayHQ (www.playhq.com) and create an account and register as a player for all teams and associations where they play. The 12-month license must be purchased before you can play and will be renewed annually. This direct payment to Basketball Victoria (BV) allows players to be playing across multiple venues in varying roles (including coaches and referees), or involved in numerous teams at the same place and only pay the one BV registration fee. Previously BV collected ‘team fees’ from associations, so players involved in multiple games shared multiple team fees. This is not an additional fee, this is just a realignment of fees.
Team managers will no longer be responsible for managing individuals data and submitting players’ information for teams. All players will be accountable for their data and will be required to register and pay individually online and directly to BV, reducing WBA’s team entry fees and protecting the privacy of data from being passed on.
WBA’s average season fees were $192.00 per team. Commencing in 2021, entry for senior competitions will be $100.00 per team per season. Each team can have as many players registered as they wish, provided players complete their registration online via the PlayHQ platform. More information will be provided to team representatives shortly.
WBA will be altering Senior Domestic Competition seasons from summer and winter to autumn and spring. This change will commence from January 2021, but the transition starts now.
Autumn Season = January to June
Spring Season = July to December
To prepare for this change, WBA will run two shorter seasons for the remainder of the 2020 calendar year. Most senior seasons are approximately 22 – 24 rounds and will be $100.00 team entry per season. Due to the shorter 14 and 16 round seasons listed below, we are further reducing our entry fees to $72.50 per team per season for winter 2020 and spring 2020 seasons.
Winter 2020 = April 14 to July 26 = 16 rounds final series August 2 and 9
Spring 2020 = August 16 to December 3 = 16 rounds plus final series December 10 and 17
Rules and regulation changes for this coming winter 2020 season
During the shorter season, the following changes are for Winter 2020 only:
- Four grading games
- Sunday and Monday competitions – 6 games to qualify for finals
- Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday competition – 7 games to be eligible for finals
