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.
Registrations for Winter 2020 season are OPEN!!!

Basketball Victoria (BV) are introducing and mandating a new way forward for registrations across the state. For BV information on this move please click here.
All players will register with PlayHQ, pay an annual license fee to BV (this is not a new fee but was previously incorporated into our club fees) and then register to play with Scorpions.
We are pleased to announce that we are running our Stingers junior development program in February. This program aims to introduce new basketballers to the basic skills of the game prior to joining a team. The sessions will run on Sunday afternoons for 3 weeks from 2-3pm commencing Feb 16th.
