Teams at Dulwich-Newtown Basketball Club generally play in the City of Sydney Basketball Association competitions.
Competitions run year-round during school term and the year is split into three seasons. These are the dates for 2020 seasons:
Season 1 runs 7th February to 16th May.
Season 2 runs 22nd May to 29th August.
Season 3 runs 4th September to 12th December.
Under 16 and Under 18 Girls play games on Friday night at Alexandria. Under 16 and Under 18 Boys can play games on either Friday night at Alexandria or Saturday at Marrickville PCYC. All other juniors play games on Saturdays at Alexandria.
Age groups are determined by the player’s age at the end of the calendar year. This means to play Under 14s, for example, a player must be 13 or less at the end of the current year.
We have some teams that do not have training however most have either a 1 hour or 1.5 hour training once per week.
Possible training venues are Marrickville PCYC, Marrickville High, Dulwich Hill High, Fort St High, Glebe PCYC, Peter Forsyth Auditorium and Wilkins Primary School.

Attend a trial session if you are new to the club. This is not mandatory but helps us put you in an appropriate team.
Get a jersey. You can purchase one here: https://shop.sportility.co/collections/dulwich-newtown-basketball. While you wait for it to arrive, we can provide a spare one at no cost. If you prefer not to purchase one, contact us about hiring one for a season for $20.
We will contact you about a week before the season starts to let you know your team placement and more specific details.
We will be running season one trials for the larger age groups only during the last week of January. We accept players of all levels, but these trials are to place players in appropriate teams and divisions. Note that U10 boys and all girls will not require trials.
Attending a trial session is not mandatory however if you are new to the club or keen on changing teams or divisions it is highly recommended.
