Join a Junior Team
Willetton Basketball Association currently has almost 500 teams playing in our Junior domestic competition.
The work of sporting clubs is done by volunteers, who coach, manage or provide administration duties, regardless of backround or familiarity with basketball. Parents and volunteers give up their time to our sporting community, which is what make it great. Please contact your clubs or us about what sort of roles are available and how we can help you, and you can help us.
Our Junior domestic competitions run from Under 8s through to Under 18s for males and females. 8 clubs take part in the competition. Most competitions are played on SATURDAYS (fixtures here) during school terms, with some games also on weekday evenings for older age groups. Summer season runs Term 4 and term 1; Winter season is Terms 2 &3.
We never like telling people it is difficult to join a team, but in some age groups waiting times can be lengthy. Our competitions are limited to the number of courts we have and most boys' teams have high numbers.
An important note about Kidsport:DO NOT apply for Kidsport for Willetton Basketball / Willetton Tigers. WAIT until you have joined a club, and then register for Kidsport with that club.
Domestic junior competition waitlist
Join the waiting list here.
Please note we have a non refundable $20 admin fee for registering on the wait list
Please be VERY SURE that your child wants to play before joining the list; it is demoralising for our club volunteers to email or call (numerous) children on the waiting list who are unavailable to play on designated game days or have "changed their mind". The game days and times for each age group are on our fixtures.
To see what age group your child is eligible for and if they are old enough to join a team, please go to the age group table through this LINK
Your domestic team will NOT be the Willetton Tigers. Tigers are our representative basketball team (please see here for more information), and you must play with a domestic club to try out for the Tigers.
Pathways to development: the Willetton Tigers.
