We have clicked over into a new affiliation season, what that means if you haven’t logged back into the sports TG system and paid your SA country affiliation fees today you or members of your family are now classed as non-financial.

If you are non financial you aren’t covered by insurance, as such you cannot take to our courts in any fashion, be that casual training, club training, combined training or games. The WBA does not accept the risk associated with non-financial persons on our courts. We are aware of who is and isn’t financial and will be enforcing this. Please help us in getting your fees paid ASAP.

The WBA is upgrading its entrance and no longer has need for this sturdy Aluminium framed glass fronted notice board.
If you would like it for your club please let us know! Purchaser to remove (easily with just around a dozen screws).

$100 - 3m x 1.3m

The online training scedule has been updated on this website.

Aussie Hoops Registrations are now open!!
Please follow the link below.
There will be 2 programs being run:
1st - 5-6 y.o.
2nd - 7-9 y.o.
After a few weeks we may move kids up or down so they are in the correct ability group.
As previously stated this program runs within school terms.
Age is determined as at the 1st day of term 4.
Thus you must be at least 5 on the 14/10/19 to register for term 4.
If your child has a FIBA number(has played before) please use that to register. Don't create a new profile. keep your username and password as you will need it every term to re register.
Once you select a program and are into the registration process there are are 2 choices, either a "New " or "Returning" participant.
Selecting new means you are requesting to purchase the participant pack, ball, reversible Aussie Hoops uniform and a drink bottle, etc. The cost of this is $30 which is a good price!!
"This is not compulsory", if you have a uniform and your own ball already then you may choose to register as a "returning participant" and save yourself $30.
Online payment is compulsory, you can't register successfully without making the final payment.
You will receive a confirmation email on completion.
Any questions or problems please inbox us.
Spread to word to your friends that don't have face book!

Look what I found.
Can anybody help identify these classic old Steelers players and the year these were taken Please.

With clubs heavily into the registratuion process for Summer her are some user tips.

When registering this season returning members are asked to use the same login details as previously, even when changing clubs. Every time you login as a new member or use a different email it creates a duplicate entry which stays in the system forever.
Like me if you have stuffed up and have more than 1 profile/Fiba member number always use the same one (the top one). Your payment transaction history is linked to these member numbers so if you keep using different logins the system thinks you haven't paid and will OVER CHARGE you.
If you can't remember the email address you used, contact your club they can get that info for you.

WBA was hoping to have the Aussie Hoops Registration portal set up this week. But the Basketball Australia Program administrator is on holiday so that won't happen till next week some time.
Some more FAQ's
AH is run separately over each school term. WBA can choose how many weeks per term it will be run.
Term 4 will be 10 weeks
Term 1 will be 5 weeks(till the end of our season)
Term 2 will be 10 weeks
Term 3 AH won't run as that is our Win - Sum break.
AH cost for term 4 will be an online payment of $60 fee.
There are no club fees, affiliation cost or weekly admission fees so this is effectively less than half the previous cost to play.
The AH starter pack with basketball, singlet,etc will be sold at cost price of $30.
