Joining MSD Spartans

We are always looking for new teams at the start of a season, if registrations are not open yet we can let you know by putting your team on the waiting list – click here.

When registrations open(roughly 6 weeks before the start of the season) teams will need to have their team contact register the team online by clicking here.

Once we accept your team entry we will contact you just after the closing date for new teams with your Grading Game time and date. This helps us see what level competition you are suited to, how organised the team is, and view the teams conduct and sportsmanship.

Shortly after the grading game we will contact you to offer you a position in a competition. Unfortunately due to restricted court space and some spaces not becoming available we can not always offer a place in the association.

When a team oragniser registers a team they will be emailed a link to a player registration form which is unique to your team. All players including the team organiser must register as a ‘Player’ each season.

If you do not have your teams link please email us admin@spartansbasketball.net.au

Yes, however we strongly encourage people to register well before their game starts so they can easily be added to the tablets and not miss out on any game time. 

Yes, all players, including the team organiser must register to every competition season they wish to participate in as a ‘Player’.

The BV Licence payment allows any participant to play as many times, in as many teams as they want, wherever they want across Victoria in a 365 day period for the one fee.

Team organisers register the team, and need to register as a ‘player’ to be added to the team sheet. 

If someone manages the team who doesn’t play they may wish to register as the team manager. 

We love people to join our competition with or without a team, sometimes our teams are short of players and ask do we have anyone looking for a team?

Click here to register your interest in joining a team, the more information you provide us will help us match you to the best team possible. We will then give your details to team contacts looking for players.

They pay $0 – Casual Player Pass / Fill-in can play 2 games max. per year. Player must be fully registered by their 3rd game within a 12 month period.

Note:  There will be a base level of information required for a fill-in/casual player on the court side tablet before taking the court. The scoring system will assist with this process

Competition Questions

Creating a schedule takes time, we work hard on grading teams, filling court space, and trying to get the most even and fair schedule for the entire competition.

Fixtures will be slowly released at the start of the season, this gives us the flexibility to fix any issues.

We kindly ask teams to have patience with us while we work through the process and wait to be contacted.

Teams may pay on game night at the front door with cash/card, or pay online with Teammo. 

Teams who chose to pay with Teammo are able to split the team sheet payment between those who played on the night. 

To sign up to teammo click here – https://teammo.com.au/msd-spartans

Sure can, a minimum of 4 players must take the court to start a game and only 2 are required to finish a game.

Walkovers are not good for the competition, sometimes it can not be helped, however good planing before the season, and some help from friends or family to fill in can go a long way to still having a game go ahead.

If you have to give a walkover click here, the more notice the better for the opposition and the association.

No uniform, no worries we have you covered. Loan uniforms for new teams, existing teams playing teams with the same colours and that occasion you simply left them at home.

See us at the office off court 7, leave your details, a small fee per item unless it a clash of colours and don’t forget to drop them off after the game so we can wash, dry and let someone else borrow them.

Good competition makes for an enjoyable season.

When you register you have the option to put in a requested competition with a reason for the change. This reason will help decide where we put your team and if the change is reasonable, if you wish to send us more information to help grade your team please email us.

Once the season starts if you are getting beaten or easily beating teams we can review the results of the first three rounds.

With the above two options if a position is available and your request is reasonable we can move your team.

Send us a message through the form below or email with the results you think should be up and we are happy to look rectify the problem.

Our officials are all trained to the standards set by Basketball Victoria and Basketball Australia. As officials are people as well they’re not perfect, we understand that and stress that everyone in sport has some understanding.

If you feel like you need to talk to someone about the officiating we have options for that.

Step 1. During your game seek the referee supervisor, substitutes are a good option to get them. Or use the halftime break.

This helps us view the game and see what is happening.

Step 2. If you couldn’t see the supervisor during the game, they’re available to speak to after the game.

Step 3. Only if you haven’t been satisfied with the response in person, feel free to send an email to us with the details.

We again emphasise steps 1 and 2 as the best option to resolve the issue/concern on the night, as it is harder to work through with all those concerned 7 days later.

As a member of Basketball Victoria all registered players are provide with sports insurance. For full details on what this covers and how to make a claim please visit – www.vinsurancegroup.com/basketball
