If you are interested in coaching and are able to coach a team, please let the club know. 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. If you are able to volunteer as a Team Manager, please let the club know.

Social Media

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.

Find our social channel links here.

New to Glen Iris Scorpions?

If you played last season for a different domestic club in the Waverley competition, you will be prompted to complete club transfer details in PlayHQ. Once completed, PlayHQ will notify your outgoing club for approval. Once approved by your old club, the approval will automatically go to WBA for approval, then come to Scorpions for approval.

Teams and Age groups

Scorpions Basketball enters teams into competitions that are run by the Waverley Basketball Association.

These are in 2 main categories: 

1)  Boys Domestic competition which all boys OR mixed teams can enter, and 

2)  Girls Domestic competition which is strictly girls only.  

Waverley Basketball Association have changed the Age Group Rules for junior competitions effective from Winter 2023 onward. These age group rules now extend to cover the whole season – i.e. 31 October for Winter and 30 April for Summer. This goes towards somewhat aligning to the age groups of the VJBL representative competitions.

Please use the following guide for the Winter season to understand the Age Group your player/s will qualify for:

  • UNDER 8 – eligible players must not turn 8 before 31 October 2023.
  • UNDER 10 – eligible players must not turn 10 before 31 October 2023.
  • UNDER 12 – eligible players must not turn 12 before 31 October 2023.
  • UNDER 14 – eligible players must not turn 14 before 31 October 2023.
  • UNDER 16 – eligible players must not turn 16 before 31 October 2023.
  • UNDER 18 – eligible players must not turn 18 before 31 October 2023.
  • UNDER 20 – eligible players must not turn 20 before 31 October 2023.

Please note: Players will be placed in teams according to their age group. Exemptions for playing in an age group other than the one your player is eligible for must be submitted by the club in writing to Waverley Basketball Association for their consideration. Requests for playing in different age groups can be made and will be considered depending on overall numbers and team allocation. NO guarantee is given that your child can play in a different age group.

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. Experience and skill level will also be considered in order to create optimally balanced teams. 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 – All players in these groups must attend the applicable grading sessions for their age group. Players who do not attend the grading sessions will be placed in a team at the Age Group Co-ordinator’s discretion. 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.

The Glen Iris District Basketball Club uses a CODE OF CONDUCT (developed by Basketball Victoria) which provides a guide to the expectations of those involved in the club. This guide applies to all players, coaches, administrators and spectators.

To register a player all parents/guardians and players must be aware of the Code of Conduct and agree to comply with the guidelines. This includes any Covid related restrictions or rules that may occur during the season – including QR check-in, displaying vaccination status and wearing masks.
