How to Join
There are a few things you need to do to join:
Complete our sign up form here.
We will contact you shortly before the season starts to let you know your team placement and more specific details. It may be possible to join a team mid-season but it would depend on space availability.
Register with the association. For the City of Sydney Basketball Association this is done here and must be done before your first game.
Order a jersey. These are purchased through our website here.
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 2022 seasons:
Season 1 runs 31st January to 14th May.
Season 2 runs 16th May to 27th August.
Season 3 runs 29th August to 10th December.
Under 16 and Under 18 Girls play games on Friday night at Alexandria.
Under 16 and Under 18 Boys play games on Saturday afternoon/evenings at Marrickville PCYC or Alexandria Basketball Stadium.
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.
Some of our teams choose to not train, however most have either a 1 hour or 1.5 hour training session once per week.
Possible training venues are Marrickville PCYC, Marrickville High, Dulwich Hill High, and Fort St High.
We ask that all players bring their own ball to training. U10s use a size 5 ball in matches. U12/14 boys and U12/14/16/18 girls use a size 6 ball. U16/18 boys use a size 7 ball. If you already have a ball that isn't the correct size, that's acceptable for training.
There are three main costs involved in playing basketball:
Registration payment goes to Basketball NSW and the City of Sydney Basketball Association. This lasts 12 months and includes insurance coverage. The cost varies depending on the player's age.
Club fees. These amounts vary by age group and the length of training. It typically ranges from $200 to $250 per season including training. Invoices are sent during the first week of the season.
If your team plays games at Marrickville PCYC (U16/18 Boys) or trains there you would also need a PCYC membership which is $10 per year for juniors.
Active Kids Vouchers
The club is a registered Active Kids provider meaning you can claim a voucher towards the club fee. The Active Kids program provides two $100 vouchers for parents, guardians and carers of school-enrolled children to use towards sport and active recreation costs each year.
