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 $43 annually.
Players 17yrs and younger the fee is $29 annually.

This fee is payable by each player when completing their individual member registration.
