ANNUAL BASKETBALL VICTORIA REGISTRATION
Please note that Basketball Victoria collects a fee of $43 to provide a basic level of insurance to all registered participants, regardless of how many competitions you join in Victoria.
FEE SUMMARY & DISTRIBUTION
• MUBC Membership = $80 or $155 (distributed to MUBC)
• Uniform set = $70 (distributed to MUBC)
• Sunday Team registration = $180 (distributed to the competition organisers)
• Annual Basketball Victoria registration = $43 (distributed to Basketball Victoria)
We want to remind you that if you sign up to play for a team, you are committed to your team for the season. In the unfortunate event that your team forfeits, MUBC will incur a forfeit fee from the competition which is roughly $100. Each team member is required to contribute $10 towards the fine, therefore, the contribution per player rarely covers the actual cost to the club.
Finally, please note that your MUBC membership must be up-to-date to participate in our training sessions or any of the competitions above. So, take action now - ensure your membership is current!
