Home

Glen Iris Scorpions is a junior basketball club associated with the Waverley Basketball Association.  We have teams for boys and girls from under 8 to under 18.

We are a volunteer run club.  All committee members, most coaches and other club officials are volunteers.  The club exists for the kids and there is an onus and responsibility on the whole extended club (players and parents) to help make it a great experience for all.

Our club encourages participation, team spirit and the social and sporting development of all players.

Waverley Basketball Association’s Competition is usually divided into two seasons per year.  The Summer Season runs from October to March during school terms four and one, and the  Winter Season runs from April to September during school terms two and three.

SCORPIONS AGM –  8pm Monday March 15th, via Zoom

Committee Call out  – We NEED you!

Scorpions Basketball is run by a small, tireless and dedicated team of volunteers. It is time for some new energy and now is the perfect time to help out the club. Volunteering for a role now would enable you to learn the ropes before taking over after the AGM in February. We have the following positions becoming vacant – 
 
Club Registrar – an admin role that is busy at the start of each season and quiet in between.
Club Secretary – Helping the club with communication, social media, court bookings and administration.
Coaching Co-ordinator – overseeing coach recruitment and training. Ideally for someone with some basketball knowledge. 
 
We also welcome general committee members and particularly would love parents with kids in U8 or U10 to be represented. We meet once a month and may continue doing this on zoom to help with efficiency. Glen Iris Scorpions will simply not be sustainable as a club without renewal on the committee. Please do not hesitate to contact the club if you’d like to chat further about the responsibilities of joining the committee.
