SEASON INFORMATION

Season starts week of 13th July 2020. Ensure you are registered and have a playing uniform. Failure to do so may cost you the ability to play.

Player registration

Player registration is your responsibility. If you do not sort out your registration then your child faces the possibility of not being able to play. Please take a couple of minute to check when your child’s registration is due.

Season fees

Season fees are paid to Hoopstars Basketball and are extra to the registration fees (approx $100). Registration fees are paid to Basketball Qld and Southern Districts Basketball Association. Season fees cover game fees imposed by Southern Districts, training costs for training players and club expenses. For this short term are:

  • U7 and Non training teams – $125
  • Training players – $165

Uniforms

All Hoopstars players must purchase a Hoopstars playing uniform; jersey and shorts. Your child will play with this number until needing to purchase a larger size. We do not loan out singlets as over the years this has proven to be a very expensive experience for the club. Uniforms can be ordered online.

Uniforms are ordered online – https://hoopstarsbasketball.com.au/new-players/uniforms/

There is a sizing chart in the cart. The best way is to grab your child’s favorite shirt and shorts and lie them flat on a bench or bed and measure across the 2 sections indicated in the chart. Do not double the measurement. Boys must order a reversible singlet, girls can use the single sided ones.

Returning players

Parents please use this link to check if your child’s registration is due for renewal. Basketball Qld were extending all registrations for the term of the COVID shutdown.
Players must have a current registration prior to the first game.
1. Go to the Basketball Qld portal and log in
2. Click on History in the left hand column
3. Scroll down to the bottom where you will see membership periods and they can see if registered or need to renew.

New Players

All players must be registered four(4) days prior to game one. If you have not registered your name will not be available to add to the game tablets and will result in your child not being able to participate in the first game. Please go to the SDBAL website and complete the mandatory registration, this provides you player insurance amongst other things.

Players moving from any other Southern Districts clubs

Players who are moving from other clubs must complete the Junior Club Clearance form and the process completed before they can take the court for Hoopstars. If you do not complete the form then we are unable to add you to our team lists on the game tablets. If your last game at SDBAL was with another club irrelevant of how many years ago you must still complete the transfer form.

Parent involvement

Parents please take the time to familiarise yourself with the coach other parents. We also take this opportunity to remind parents that this is a junior basketball competition. Our officials and sometimes coaches are young kids. There is no place for behaviour that is not respectful or polite. We do require a parent each week to do score bench, please do not leave it for the same people each week. Either the scoreboard or computer. It is an easy thing to do and there is always someone who can help you out. Work it amongst yourselves and if everyone pitches in, we have a great season.
