What competition should I put my team in?

- A Reserve grade - suits Lower VJL 1 & SA Div 1 and Qld Div 1
- B1 grade - suits VJL 2 and high VJL 3 SA Div 2
- B2 grade - suits VJL 3 and VJL 4, NSW Div 2 SA Div 2 lower
- B3 grade –-suits East 1, high North and high East 2 teams
- C1 grade - suits East 2, lower North and domestic teams
- C2 grade - suits Regional 3, 4 lower North, SA Div 3 and domestic teams
- C3 grade - suits Regional 5 6, low domestic teams
Under 11 – suits only very young development or low skilled domestic players – not currently playing rep or very lowest grade with no wins.
VJL is the same as the old Metro grading that was used by Basketball Victoria for many years so VJL1 and sometimes VJL2 would usually be top age players not up to the highest level.
VJL 3 & 4 typically are bottom age players unless the skill level wasn’t there.
East is the same – usually for kids with lower skills – could be top or bottom age - would usually be compared to B grade in domestic or lower as the numbers East 2, 3 & 4.

How much is stadium entry?
Your team has paid an entry fee for the tournament and that fee covers the cost of the stadium entry for everyone. You can bring Grandma, Grandpa or any one your want too and it will not cost you a cent for them to get in. You could help us by purchasing a raffle ticket but that's only if you want to. It's not compulsory.
Our team may make Classic, what should I do?
Teams who have also entered for the Classic are invited to enter our tournament as a backstop (don’t forget to inform us in the notes if you are potentially plaing in the Classic). We understand that quite often airfares and accommodation have been booked in the hope of Classic selection. For those teams who do not make it we offer a very high level competition as an alternative.
## Classic Entries ONLY - Please fill in the entry form and return with no payment, marking the entry ‘entered in Classic’ in the notes area. We work very closely with the Classic organizers and will not close those entries until final details are received from Basketball Victoria.
What time does the tournament end on the Monday?
Grand finals will conclude by 3pm on Monday 13th June. Interstate teams booking flights should book an evening flight to allow enough time to get to the airport.
I am a referee and would like to referee in the tournament, who should I contact?
We are always on the look-out for refs and interstate refs who may be coming over with family members. Just send us an email firstname.lastname@example.org and the Referee Supervisor will follow up.
I'm registering a player into the system but it's different to what I'm used too. Is there any help?
Yes, Basketball Australia are now rolling out the National Database. We are first to trial the program. Instructions on how to register via email sign on are available. http://support.sportingpulse.com/help/article/link/email-sign-on-registering . We strongly recommended instead of the team manager registering all players into the team each parent should register their child.
We are only a domestic club, can we enter the tournament?
Yes you can. Any teams that meet the age criteria may enter.
