Waverley Basketball Junior Competition has two major seasons per year. Our Summer Season runs from October to March during school terms four and one, breaking over the Summer holidays, and our Winter Season runs from March to October during school terms two and three.
The competition consists of boys and girls teams from Under 8 to Under 18 age groups. Games are at the Waverley Basketball Stadium, Corner Batesford Road and Power Avenue Chadstone, the Oakleigh Recreation Centre, 2A Park Road Oakleigh, as well as several schools in the local area.
Games are played across Saturdays and Sundays depending on the age group and gender. Girls have the option of playing in the Boys competition as well as the Girls competition only under the following conditions:
1. For all age groups, girls can play in the boys' competition if the club is not entering a girl’s team in the age group in question
2. Under 14, 16 and 18 can play in the boy’s competition only if they first play with a girls team in the age group, and the priority must be to girls' competition.
