Basketball Victoria Annual Participant Licence Fee: A separate fee of $25 for 17 years and under, and $35 for older players, may be added to the final price if players don’t already have a licence which covers them for the full season in which they are registering. This 365-day Basketball Victoria licence (affiliation) covers persons participating in Basketball Victoria sanctioned activities. The licence allows a participant to play, with base level insurance cover, as many times as they like within 365-days across any affiliated association or club in Victoria. Insurance is provided by V-Insurance Group. 

Refund Policy: Warrandyte Basketball understands that situations may arise where players are unable to continue playing following payment of their registration fee.  Refer to our Registration Refund Policy, which applies to all program participants.

PlayHQ Registrations: To register a child for the first time, a parent will need to initially set up their own PlayHQ account.  Once done, they will be able to register their child/ren as dependents under that account.  It is best to use a personal email that you will likely have long term (avoid using a work email), as you will need this to log into your account in the future. When logged into PlayHQ already, the link below will go direct to the registration page.  Otherwise, sign in and search Warrandyte Basketball.  Click on the ‘Register’ option and then select Summer 2021/22 Season.

Discount Voucher Code: Winter 2021 Season has been interrupted due to necessary Victorian COVID lockdowns. As such, players have received an email which details how they can apply a credit against the Summer 2021/22 registration fee.  For eligible players, please make sure you don’t forget to input the code on the payment screen.

Team Selection: The Club’s selection panel use a range of different criteria when selecting teams. Redbacks is a great opportunity for players to meet new people and play to their full potential with similar skilled players.  As such, friendship requests are discouraged. Friendship teams will only be considered for U16 and above when a complete set of 7-8 players and a coach are nominated.  Friendship teams are required to abide by the same Code of Conduct as the club selected teams and always show respect to the game and the officials.

Training Times & Venues: Each team is allocated a weekly 45-minute training session held after 4:00pm from Monday-Thursday.  Training is held at the following stadiums:

  • Warrandyte Sports Complex (WSC) – Anderson’s Creek Primary School, Drysdale Road, Warrandyte
  • Warrandyte High School (WHS) – Cnr Warrandyte & Alexander Road, Warrandyte (access off Alexander Road – Carpark 2)

Coaches & Team Managers: Our coaches are volunteers and are usually former or current players or parents with basketball experience.  Coaches over 18 years of age must obtain a Working With Children Check.  If you are interested in coaching, we welcome you to nominate for selection.  Simply record your interest in your child’s PlayHQ registration form.

Each Redbacks team requires a parent to take on the role of Team Manager.  The Team Manager’s responsibilities include compiling a scoring roster, communicating game details with the team each week and being the point of contact for team members. Recently, our teams have also had to appoint a COVID Check-in Marshal for training sessions to ensure club COVID protocols are followed.

Uniforms: The uniform for Warrandyte Redbacks includes a reversible playing singlet ($60) and shorts ($50).  Both items can be purchased from the Warrandyte Basketball Uniform Shop located at the Warrandyte Sports Complex.  Orders can be made during Uniform Shop opening times or via .  Optional merchandise is also available at the shop and includes a Redbacks T-Shirt ($20), a Redbacks jumper ($60) and Molten Basketballs (available at a discounted price).

Help Needed: There are many ways Warrandyte Basketball needs the support from player parents.  Currently, our volunteer committee of 6 people invest many hours managing our 3 programs (Redbacks, Venom, Big V).  We are always looking for passionate basketball people to join our committee but are also looking for people who can assist in off-committee roles.  Examples include:

  • Grants Officer
  • Venue Liaison
  • Diary Article Co-ordinator
  • Policies Co-ordinator
  • Uniform Shop Assistant
  • Fundraising Assistants
  • Washing (seeking multiple volunteers to run a rotating weekly washing roster for court towels and/or clash tops)
  • Handyman for odd jobs
  • IT expert
  • Any other assistance you think we could utilise

If you believe you can help (even in a small way) please email . We welcome and appreciate any contribution you can offer.
