Players are expected to show commitment to their team by attending training regularly and turning up reliably for games at least 10 minutes prior to starting time. Apart from illness, injury or an occasional special event, players are expected to be available for all games and training, and to advise their coach and team manager in advance if they cannot play or attend training for any reason.
Players who have other regular commitments on a Saturday should make a note of this on their registration form. If possible, attempts will be made to avoid clashes, but players should be aware that requests for particular times can’t always be accommodated.
Registrations are done online now which is usually a few weeks before the finals commence in the current season. Existing players must register before the date which will be mentioned on the website as well pay fees. If they are new players or are transferring from another DBA club need to fill out the “Expression of Interest” form first then club will be in contact. Registration costs are posted on the online forms.
If you have any further queries about registration visit the registration page @ “Registration Page”
If you have played with another DBA club in the past, you will be required to get a clearance before playing with the Oatlander Outlaws. Please advise a committee member at Registration time or via e-mail. If you need a clearance and provide them details of the club you are transferring from. If you’ve come from a club outside the association, then no clearance is required. All previous competition basketball experience should be noted on the registration form.
New to Basketball?
Seven-years-old is a good starting age for competitive team basketball, although some kids are ready to start by age six. Coaches teach game play, rules and teamwork along with skills throughout the season.
The Dandenong Basketball Association (DBA) seasons coincide with school terms: the winter season runs from April to September (school terms 2 & 3), and the summer season runs from October to March (school terms 4 & 1). For exact dates check the DBA website @ http://www.dandenongbasketball.com.au
Games are scheduled on Saturdays at 50-minute intervals from 8:00 am to 6:00 pm. For the younger age groups, U8-U11, about 70% of games are morning games, starting between 8:00 am and 11:50 am. For these age groups, it’s rare to have a game at 3:10 pm or later, but they do happen. Older age groups (U14 and up) can be expected to play between 11am and 6pm.
Factors that influence the fixturing of games include coaches who also play and coaches who coach multiple teams. To avoid clashes, game times can often go outside of the typical range. Even if this is not applicable to your team, it could be for some of the teams that you play against.
For this upcoming season (Winter 2018) the teams are under the ages of 8, 10, 11, 12, 14, 16, 18 and 23.
The DBA competition is large enough to cater for all standards and levels of experience. Teams are selected by the clubs and then graded by the association to ensure that everyone gets placed at an appropriate level. Please fill out the “Expression of Interest” Form if wanting to join.
Throughout the season you will be rostered on for scoring duty approximately two or three times and possibly a third or fourth time if your team makes the finals. This involves scoring the game with a parent from the other team.
