FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

When do seniors play?

Men’s competition has A-C grades, women’s competition has one grade. Tigers representative teams compete in the Spalding Waratah League and Barrengarry Conference.

When does the next season begin?

Summer season begins in October and finishes in April. Winter Season begins in October and aligns with the fourth school term. Both seasons are approximately 20 weeks and run during school terms.

Can I enter my own team?

Yes. New teams are welcome at the beginning of each season. Get in contact to find out when the next season starts.

Can I join an existing team?

Yes. Contact us and we’ll assist with finding the right team for you.

What is the uniform for senior teams?

Seniors provide their own team singlet, often with their sponsor or team name displayed. Singlets must have a number front and back. Wear black shorts or a design that coordinates with your singlet. Talk to us before choosing your team colours to avoid choosing the same uniform as an existing team. The SBA uniform policy can be viewed here.

Can I wear accessories such as leg or arm sleeves?

Yes. They must be black as stated by FIBA rules.

What are uniform penalty points?

Players must adhere to the uniform policy set out in our competition rules. From week three of each season, uniform penalties of one point per non-uniform item will be enforced. These are applied to the opposing team’s score at halftime.

What are the rules in senior competition?

SBA has the same rules across junior and senior competition. Senior team delegates are required to read these, share them with their team, and provide confirmation to SBA that this has taken place.

View SBA’s senior competition rules here.

Will my team have to do bench duty?

Yes. Teams are rostered on bench duty every couple of weeks either before or after their game. Your team must provide two people for bench duty and at times a third person is required to be a duty referee. Bench duty will appear in the Game Day app for your team.

What is a Duty Referee?

Your team must have members willing to referee a game when rostered on duty. Referee courses are delivered regularly to build skills and confidence. In most cases, the Duty Referee will be running with a more experienced referee.

What happens if a team doesn’t do their rostered duty?

Failure to provide players for duty on three occasions during a season will result in sanctions. After the third infraction, the offending team will be required to attend a score bench education session before being allowed to take the court again.

What are the fees?

There are two components to basketball fees. Term fees cover court fees, administration, and referee costs. An annual fee is also paid to Basketball NSW for insurance and related costs. View the fee breakdown here.
