COVID Safe Protocols
At this stage, basketball will return at Covid Orange 50 level. This will ensure safety for all participants and spectators but does involve some changes to the normal basketball game day routine. Please familiarise yourself with Waverley’s Return to Basketball Guidelines or see Basketball Victoria information here.
Fees have changed due to the length of the season and changes to fees Waverley have put in place.
Please note there is no longer a door entry charge on game days. We recognise this is a higher fee than a usual length season and encourage any families who wish to pay in installments to contact the club on firstname.lastname@example.org
Basketball Victoria will continue to charge an annual $25 license fee for each Junior player. If you paid this for Winter 2020, the license will still be valid due to the cancellation of the season.
Fees for Winter 2021 season are $320. Please see below for a breakdown on allocation of fees charged.
Parents registering their child to play for the first will need to set up a PlayHQ account with email and password, this is operated by Basketball Victoria (BV). PlayHQ will continue to recognise and remember all children attached to that parent login in subsequent seasons. In order to pay the Basketball Victoria fee only once a year – this login email should stay consistent throughout seasons. Please be aware of this if an alternate parent is registering your child.
If you are interested in coaching and are able to coach a team please tick YES.
The club will provide training and support to new and experienced coaches.
Waverley Basketball Association require all teams to nominate a game day coach/representative. Our club also requires a coach/team representative to run a week day training session with their team at the allocated time for Under 14 and younger age groups. The game day coach and training roles can be shared.
All coaches must hold a valid ‘Working with Children Check’ (WWC).
Team Manager Role
A Team Manager is usually a parent from the team who coordinates communication for their team for the season. They will be supported by the Scorpions Team Manager Coordinator, so no prior experience is needed! This season we will be asking that Team Managers also hold a valid WWC.
The Glen Iris Scorpions website, Facebook and Instagram pages are a quick and easy way for the club to disseminate information to our families, engage with our community and share our teams in action at training, games & events.
These club social media channels are publicly accessible by all internet users. The club may share team information, photographs and videos, but no individual information is included.
New to Glen Iris Scorpions?
If you played last season for a different domestic club in the Waverley competition, you will need to complete a clearance form and provide a copy to our club and the Waverley office (no need to redo if this was done in preparation for the cancelled season).

Nominating team mates
For our full team selection and grading policy please read here
For Under 8 and Under 10 groups – Where possible and numbers permitting players will be placed with at least one nominated friend or existing team mate. There are three fields to nominate a friend so please use all three fields. If you only complete one or two fields there is no guarantee you will be placed with that nominated friend.
For Under 12 – Under 14 groups – We will use the first few games of this season to fine tune team allocation as appropriate. Whilst you can still nominate team mates you would like to play with, the greater emphasis will be on forming teams of even skill level.
For Under 16 groups & over – There is no grading for these groups, however, a greater emphasis will be placed on player skill level and creating evenly skilled teams. You may still nominate team mates you wish to play with and this will be considered by the Age Group Co-ordinator when selecting teams.
Please note that in compliance with the Terms and Conditions of Registration, individual player refunds will not be issued once the player/team has been officially registered with the Waverley Basketball Association. Any special requests for refunds must be submitted to the Glen Iris Basketball Club Committee for consideration.
