The individuals on each team make the choice whether to run regular training or not for their team. The majority of our senior teams choose not to.
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 is $145 for senior players.
Playing fees. A single invoice for each team's fees is sent to a nominated team manager and the amount is split up between the members. It varies team to team, however is roughly $200 per player per season.
Uniform cost. Some of our senior teams have arranged their own custom uniforms. If the team wears the standard Dulwich-Newtown uniform, it can be purchased here.
