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 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.

Please note that not all teams have coaches or team managers finalised, you will receive notification closer to the season start with details, training schedule etc.
If you or a family member would like to assist with these positions please let us know. We will be providing additional coaching and resources to assist our coaches. We also hope to continue to bring some past or older junior players through this training, so please if you love the sport, or love being involved in the sport your child loves let us know.
Coach volunteers please email email@example.com
Team Manager volunteers please email firstname.lastname@example.org
These positions are vital to ensuring that the children whom play in the Scorpions uniform have fun, learn and develop as players.
