Uniform items can be purchased via the Club’s online store https://www.maccabibasketball.com.au/uniforms Consider the size your child requires when ordering so they will at least get a couple of seasons out of it. Sizes are in children’s sizes and true to size. If unsure what size your child needs, go up a size up. Please ensure that all uniform orders are placed during registration. We cannot guarantee availability of uniforms if orders are placed after registrations are closed. PLEASE NOTE: NO REQUESTS FOR SINGLET NUMBERS WILL BE TAKEN. Uniforms will be available for pick up on uniform collection day - date and location to be advised. If you have an old uniform you no longer use please consider donating it to the Club. Any uniform queries email uniforms@maccabibasketball.com.au.
  • HOW ARE TEAMS SELECTED?
    The number of teams that Maccabi Basketball will enter into competitions (and the number of players per team) will be determined by the following factors: ● Number of registered players ● Number of coaches ● Access to facilities to train No requests will be accepted for specific training days, locations or teams. Requests to move teams due to clash of activities cannot be accommodated. Player assessment sessions will not be held prior to the Winter Season. The Club will hold annual player assessment sessions prior to Summer Season. If you are a new player U12 or above who has previously played basketball at another club or with Maccabi more than 1 season ago, please note this when registering and you will be invited to attend a training session for assessment. The Coaching Directors undertake the complex task of combining all players within an age group into the most appropriate teams that will play in graded competitions for the upcoming season. Team placement will be based on feedback from coaches on player’s performance, coachability and attitude in the previous season as well as team balance. Placement is based on skill and a player’s relative standing in relation to other similar players in the game group. The composition of each team is also considered to ensure each team has an appropriate mix of players - centers/forwards/guards. Friendship requests will not be considered in the team allocation process.
  • WHERE IS TRAINING?

  • CAN I REQUEST TO BE IN THE SAME TEAM AS A FRIEND?
    No. Teams will be selected by the Director’s of Coaching based on performance in the previous season and through the annual player assessment sessions. One of the best things about playing basketball for Maccabi is the opportunity to meet new people from different schools throughout the community and create lasting friendships and connections.

  • WHAT IS THE ROLE OF A TEAM MANAGER AND HOW ARE THEY SELECTED?
    Team Manager is a critical role and no team can play without one. Please consider volunteering for this role, your kids will love seeing you involved and you are making a fantastic contribution to our club which relies on our wonderful volunteers to operate smoothly. It is essential that one parent performs the role of Team Manager for each team. This involves: - Facilitating communication within your team - Scheduling training and creating a parent roster for training supervision - Scheduling match day events and rostering parents for scoring This is a simple but essential role that requires minimal time but makes an enormous difference to your child’s team for the season. It is a condition of registration that you agree to accept the responsibility of being a Team Manager if you are chosen. Team Managers are allocated each season on a rotational basis (unless there is a volunteer). Please do not email the club saying you are unable to be a Team manager. You have agreed to it as part of the T&Cs in registering your child. If you cannot fulfill your Team Manager duties it is your responsibility to find a parent from your team to replace you. Training cannot commence without a parent supervision roster in place for training. We have a dedicated volunteer who assists Team Managers to fulfill their roles. Please contact teamapp@maccabibasketball.com.au if you require any assistance.

As a general rule, the following training nights will be allocated for each group: Boys: Monday or Tuesday night Girls: Wednesday or Thursday night Please understand that with 80 + teams entered each season, catering to each child’s (or parent’s) preferred training venue or day is impossible.

When you register a player you are agreeing to the training days specified above and any requests for specific training days are not guaranteed. Final training days and times will be determined by the following factors (in order of priority): Availability of coaches Availability of venues Availability of players
