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.

Season commencement 2021

Waverley Basketball have confirmed plans for recommencement of the domestic basketball competition in 2021. This will commence late January and term 1 will be made of practice and grading rounds with the start of the proper Winter season in Term 2.  This allows for a soft start to competition, with flexibility in team formation and time to reintroduce the skills of basketball! It will be fantastic to see the kids back on the courts!
 

Registration is now closed for Winter season 2021.

If you have missed the deadline of Sunday Dec 13th, please email your interest and child’s details to glenirisdistrict.registrar@gmail.com

Your child will be waitlisted and you will be further notified if we can proceed with the registration.

Winter teams will be announced soon 

Uniform Orders for 2021 are still open!  It just may not be ready for the 1st game!

Please see all ordering information and links on our Uniform Page.
 

Mouthguards

All players are recommended to wear a mouthguard for games and training.  Scorpions have partnered with Ashburton Family Dental to provide a professional but discounted custom made mouthguard, ready for the beginning of every new season.

The next fitting session for mouthguards will be January 8th 2021, 2-3pm.

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 me if you’d like to chat further about the responsibilities of joining the committee.
 
So plan for Basketball to be back next year and keep an eye out for registrations opening VERY soon. 
 
I look forward to seeing our Scorpions back on the court!
 
Alisa Pont
President
