Joining MSD Spartans

We are always looking for new teams at the start of a season, new teams will need to have their team contact register the team online by clicking here, you will be required to give 2 team contacts, select your requested competition and invite team mates to register into the team.

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 contact registers a team they will be sent a link to a registration form and a TEAM CODE, this code ensures you register into the correct team.

With 5 or less rounds remaining in the regular season, an unregistered player must seek the approval of the Executive Committee before registering.

If you do not have this email please click here to go the registration form, ensure you have your TEAM CODE with you.

If you do not have your team code please email us admin@spartansbasketball.net.au

Yes, each season Team contacts will be contacted to re-register the team into the new season. This will also ask them to select returning players who have to re-register ensuring all personal and contact details are up to date.

Click here to go to the exisiting team registration form.

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.

Fill in players do not have to pay to register, just the entry fee, and must register online or at the venue before they take the court.

With less than 5 rounds to go in a season players must seek permission to register from the executive committee.

Competition Questions

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

TUESDAY NIGHT ONLY –  Each team must have at least five players to start play. If four players are present then the team must purchase a $10.00 penalty sticker from the Door Keeper. Time lost will be penalised at 1 point per minute to the offending team. The $10.00 is refunded after the game if the 5th player arrives and takes part in the match. All names must be entered on the sheet for the scores to count. Names can be added at any time. Teams will be allowed 15 minutes before a walkover is registered.

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.

As of 2018 Winter Season –
Walkovers notified before 12noon of game day – $70
Walkovers notified after 12noon of game day – $85

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
