(A) BASKETBALL SA ONLINE REGISTRATION 

 

Any NEW Junior District & Senior District players must register with Basketball SA (BSA) before they can play in 2022/23. If you have already registered with BSA earlier in 2022 (i.e. for the previous season) you will NOT need to re-register for the next season (Oct/Nov/Dec 2022).

BSA District player online registration will require a payment to BSA, which varies from about $30 to $50 depending on age group. It is a 365 day registration. The BSA District player registration fee goes to BSA and is separate to 'Team Pay' game day fees (which also go to BSA) and West Adelaide club fees, which are explained lower on this page.

(B) TRANSFERRING DISTRICT 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. 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 Pat Coppick at westbearcats.caoffice@gmail.com and BSA Competitions at competitions@basketballsa.com.au

The same process applies if you wish to be cleared from the Bearcats to play with another club. Please contact Pat Coppick 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?

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. The club will arrange loan uniforms early in the season if necessary. 

Detail for how to do this is on our DISTRICT UNIFORMS page. 

(D) 2022 SCHOOL VOUCHERS ($100) – EXPANDED SCHEME

The South Australian State Government has a program for school children which grants families $100 per child each year toward the playing fees for a sporting club for an eligible child.

In 2022 the voucher can be used for children from Reception through to Year 9, inclusive. You can use the school voucher program only once per child each year. 

If you have a school student, you can use your $100 'State Government Sports Voucher' toward your fees for Aussie Hoops, Domestic or District basketball with West Adelaide.

Please note: Your fees must be paid first (or a payment plan entered for District) - we will then refund you the $100 once approval is received from the Government (see step 3 & 4 below). 

At West Adelaide Basketball the Sports Voucher process is: 

1. Parent to download and print the Sports Voucher form - they are available online at www.sportsvouchers.sa.gov.au ​(external site)

2. Parent to fill out the Sports Voucher form and bring it into the club office on a Saturday or Sunday morning or Tuesday afternoon (or Saturday afternoon for Aussie Hoops & Domestic), along with your Medicare Card for us to sight. The form will then be marked 'verified' by the club.

3. Once the voucher form and Medicare card details are received, the club sends the voucher/rebate claim into the Government (this happens in a batch once a fortnight). The process is required so the Government can confirm that the child is eligible and the voucher hasn't been used at another club as well (it can only be used once). 

4. Once the Government has confirmed eligibility, the club will contact you and refund the $100. 

If you have any queries then please contact the club by email at westbearcats.fees@gmail.com
