Fee Structure and Explanation

BASKETBALL VICTORIA – Annual Participant License

Basketball Victoria has an individual member registration system in conjunction with PlayHQ. When each player registers, the system will check their individual license status, and when applicable, pay an annual fee directly to Basketball Victoria.

Players are charged for a new 365-day licence if they do not already have a current license that covers them for the entirety of the season they are registering to. This license covers any Basketball Victoria sanctioned competition, training or event, with any club, team or association, allowing the participant to play as many times as they like within that 365-days period.

Players aged 18yrs and over the fee is $39 annually.
Players 17yrs and younger the fee is $25 annually.

BASKETBALL HAWTHORN – Financial Resilience Levy

As a result of the COVID pandemic and subsequent closure of operations, in 2021 Basketball Hawthorn is introducing a financial resilience fee to help pay down historic debt in order to future-proof the finances of the Association and to provide the opportunity for enhanced investment and infrastructure in the future. We want to recommence play in a safe, affordable and financially responsible manner to provide for a sustainable association well into the future. The financial resilience model carefully enables competitions to be run in a profitable but affordable manner that enables all Basketball Hawthorn debts to be repaid in full within four years.
