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.

SUMMER SEASON 2021/2022

Registrations are now closed for Summer Season 21/22.

Please email your interest and child’s details (name & age) to glenirisdistrict.registrar@gmail.com. Your child will be waitlisted and you will be further notified if we can proceed with the registration.

CHANGES TO BALL SIZES FOR U8, U10, U12 GAMES

Please note, Basketball Victoria have announced that from September 2021, under 8, under 10 and under 12 age groups will all be using SIZE 5 basketballs for training and games.
 
Waverley Basketball Association will therefore also be moving forward with this change for this Summer season!!

WINTER SEASON 2021

The Winter season has officially ended due to the current lockdown. Thanks to all for being so flexible and following the restriction guidelines during what was an interrupted season. We’ll be in touch soon regarding awards and presentations to close off the season and celebrate properly.

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 will be determined and advised as soon as possible.
