Registration & Fees
All players, Team Managers and Coaches must register each season, via PlayHQ, the Basketball Victoria portal. Payment for player registration is via credit card.
Each Team Manager and Coach are required to have a valid Working With Children Check and will not be able to register without one. They are also required to complete the HBA Member Protection Declaration.
All fees must be paid via credit/debit card at the time of registration. The fees for Winter 2021 are:
- IC Basketball Club Fee – $355 for teams that train; $255 for non-training teams
- Basketball Victoria – annual insurance licence fee – $25 for U18’s and $39 for over 18’s
- Basketball Hawthorn – Financial Resilience Levy $7.50
Please note: players are not covered by insurance until the annual BV insurance licence is paid, and players will not be permitted to play or train unless fees are fully paid.
The costs of running a basketball club are considerable, with the major costs being team registration with BH, court hire for training and weekly match fees. Coaches for teams that train are paid a small honorarium (currently $300) in recognition of the great work they perform. Payment is made at the end of each season.
We are a not-for-profit organisation and do not pay committee members for the role they perform. However, in recognition of the countless hours they dedicate to keep the Club running, fees for their children are waived.
We do not have “Best Player” awards; as part of our philosophy that the important thing is to participate, each child in the younger age groups receives a trophy at the end of each season. Teams usually have a get together at the end of each season organised by the team manager.
