2019-20 Junior Season

If you are interested in playing with the Norths Basketball Club in the 2019-20 Summer Junior Basketball competition please email our Junior Coordinator, Jane Vukojevic, at northsbasketball@yahoo.com.au for information on team availability.

The following information outlines the fees payable for the 2019-20 season.

2019-20 JUNIOR FEES

Fees for the 2019-20 Summer Junior Basketball Season consist of a Club Fee and a Basketball ACT (BACT) Registration Fee. Both of these fees are payable in full at the time of registration for the season.

Club Fees

The Club fees for Junior Players in the 2019-20 Summer Basketball Season are as follows:

Age Group Year Born Social Grade DIV 1 *
U10 2011 or later $220 N/A
U12 2009/2010 $260 $310
U14 2007/2008 $260 $310
U16 2005/2006 $260 $310
U19 2002/03/04 $260 $310

* DIV 1 costs are higher due to longer training sessions than other grades. NOTE - Junior players playing in a 2nd game in a higher age group will be charged half of the fees cost for that grade.

A 'Family Discount' of $20 per player is available for the 2nd and subsequent playing members of the same family playing for Norths in the same season. Eligible family members playing in more than one team will only receive one $20 discount for the season. NOTE - Unfortunately the online system will only calculate the Family Discount for multiple registrations in the same level, ie multiple registrations all in Division 1, or multiple registrations all in Social Division, etc, not multiple mixed registrations across the different levels. If you have multiple registrations across the different levels, please use the relevant link below to register each player. You can then contact the Club Treasurer NorthsTreasurer@yahoo.com.au to request a refund of the Family Discount amount that you wish to claim for each relevant player.

The majority of Club Fees goes towards the cost charged by BACT for participation in their competitions. The rest of the Club Fee goes towards training facility hire costs incurred by the Club and a small component goes towards covering administration costs to run Norths.

Norths have kept the Club Fee as low as possible through having players pay their fees before the season starts. This allows Norths to take advantage of an early bird discount for paying the full team competition fee up front to BACT. Our Club Fee is very comparable to other clubs competing in the competition. However, we can only keep fees at a comparable rate if all players pay their fees on time and in full.

Basketball ACT (BACT) Registration Fee

BACT apply a compulsory Individual Player Registration fee of $52.00 per player per season. This fee is paid at the time of registration and is in addition to the Club fee above.

The BACT Individual Player Registration fee is used to cover Basketball ACT's affiliation with Basketball Australia (BA) in addition to the variety of insurance packages that a player receives. The BA affiliation fee, amongst other things, enables BA to invest in the national registration platform for basketball players in Australia.

Insurance is required in order to provide all Basketball ACT participants with cover should they become injured playing or training. It also provides Public Liability cover for all of our members.

PAYMENT OF FEES

Norths requires all fees to be paid in full before the season starts. You will be required to pay your Club Fee and the BACT Registration in full at the time of registration.

Refer to the Norths Fees Policy for information on our policy for fees.

Norths is required to make payment in advance to Basketball ACT for each team to be able to compete in the competition. Basketball ACT does not provide refunds to Norths for players withdrawing during a competition. Therefore, refunds of fees to players by Norths is provided only in exceptional circumstances. Please refer to the Norths Refunds Policy for information on our fee refund arrangements.

Note - If persons owe money to Norths from a prior season, they will need to also pay the outstanding amount in full before being allowed to take the court in the forthcoming season.
