New Registration Guide for Participants

Basketball Victoria is implementing a new registration platform – PlayHQ, a system that is purpose built for basketball, by basketball.

Reasons for this change include:

  • The need for a modern, user-friendly and reliable system
  • A system to help with a new state-wide individual registration process
  • Adherence to new data and privacy legislation
  • To assist with a better understanding of participants
  • To provide clubs, associations and participants with a personalised and better experience

    Change in fee structure

    Currently, players in Metropolitan Melbourne pay for their Basketball Victoria affiliation fees indirectly via team or club fees, of which a component is passed on via the club (if applicable) and/or association to Basketball Victoria. Country associations currently register individually. For anyone registering to a season commencing in 2020 – the fee will be paid directly to Basketball Victoria at the point of registration to a competition season at your club or association. This results in a more transparent and affordable fee structure as participants will only need to pay once when they register per 365-day period, irrespective of how many teams or associations they play in – all in the one PlayHQ profile.

    The individual Basketball Victoria affiliation/licence are as follows (when registering to any 2020 season):

    • $39p.p – Adult / Senior (18 or over)
    • $25p.p – Child / Junior (17 and under)
