Player Registration & Fees
REGISTRATION & FEE PAYMENTS
This page covers how to:
(A) Register to Play Metro & District Basketball
(B) Transfer to or from another District club
(C) Purchase your training & playing uniforms
(A) BASKETBALL SA ONLINE REGISTRATION
All Junior and Senior District players must register with Basketball SA (BSA) before they can play. This registration will require a payment to BSA, which varies from about $24 to $40 depending on age group. This payment is separate to club fees, which are explained in Part D of this page.
District Players please use this link to register with Basketball SA: BSA Registration link (opens new window and takes you to external site)
If you are transferring from another Club, you will need a clearance - see details at 'B' below.
(B) TRANSFERRING PLAYERS - INFORMATION
If you are transferring or have previously registered with another District club in South Australia at any time you will need to be cleared to play with the Bearcats.
To obtain a clearance you must ask the Secretary of your previous club in writing and copy in Basketball SA (email@example.com). The previous club must respond within 14 days, either granting the clearance, or providing a reason why the clearance cannot be granted. The only legitimate reason for not granting a clearance is if the player is not financial with the previous club or is holding club equipment.
Once you have your clearance please inform West Adelaide and Basketball SA by forwarding the email to Sue Porter (West Adelaide Club Secretary) at and BSA Competitions at
The same process applies if you wish to be cleared from the Bearcats to play with another club. Please contact Sue Porter as the first step. There is a $55 administration fee to be cleared from the Bearcats.
(C) HOW DO I GET MY BEARCATS UNIFORM & PLAYING NUMBER?
Please do not purchase a Bearcats uniform or get allocated a number until it is confirmed you are in a District team. The club will arrange loan uniforms early in the season if necessary.
If you are playing District Basketball with the Bearcats you will need to buy playing and training uniforms, but first get issued an official uniform number.
Uniform Number: Before purchasing any uniform you will need to be allocated a uniform number by the club. This number will go on your playing and training uniforms. To request the uniform number you must send an email to with the following details: Player Name, Date of Birth, Gender, Age Group (e.g. Under 16 Boys, Under 10 Girls) and the Division the player is most likely to be in (e.g. Div 1/2, Div 5/6 etc). You will receive your allocated player number by return email within 2 days.
Playing uniforms: Our playing uniforms (singlet & shorts) are now available for order via the club office between 9.30am and 12 noon on Saturdays; 9.30am and 11am on Sunday mornings; and 4.30pm to 6pm on Tuesday afternoons. The playing uniform costs $120 (singlet & shorts). You will need to try on a uniform for sizing. There is an approximate 6-8 week delivery time for uniforms.
Training uniforms: Our training uniforms (reversible red/black tops) are also available to order from the club office between 9.30am and 12 noon on Saturdays; 9.30am and 11am on Sunday mornings; and 4.30pm to 6pm on Tuesday afternoons.
