Welcome to the Balwyn Blazers Winter 2021 season.

Please read the following carefully:

TEAM SELECTION PROCESS

Our policy at Blazers is to place your child in the highest team that suits their ability.

This is achieved through feedback from the player’s coach from last season and performance in team situations at Team Selection Night.

HOWEVER, THE BIGGEST SINGLE INFLUENCE ON TEAM PLACEMENT IS TRAINING AVAILABILITY AND GAME DAY AVAILABILITY

The more constraints or restrictions the player has, the LOWER the team they are likely to be placed in.

For example:

  • Limiting the time they are available to train will have a serious impact on the team they are placed in
  • Stipulating a requirement for AM or PM games can significantly reduce their options.
  • (Please note: 11.50am is considered a morning and afternoon game)

Keep these to a minimum to be selected purely on ability.

Please respect that your coach’s time is valuable and remember you are an important member of a team. Missing training and games due to other commitments IMPACTS on everyone.

We do not expect basketball to be everyone’s priority, but this WILL influence team selection.

PLEASE NOTE: ADJUSTMENTS TO TEAMS CAN BE MADE THROUGHOUT THE EDJBA COMPETITION GRADING PHASE DUE TO PLAYER WITHDRAWALS, BALANCING TEAM NUMBERS OR INCORRECT GRADING OF PLAYERS.

ANY CHANGES ARE AT THE ABSOLUTE DISCRETION OF THE COMMITTEEE AND/OR AGE GROUP CO-ORDINATORS.

REGISTRATION FEES FOR WINTER

Please note that the Eastern Districts Junior Basketball Association (EDJBA) is introducing cashless game days, so registration fees include the weekly game fee for the normal part of the season. The only additional playing fees will be at finals time.
