***PLEASE NOTE: Fees are being reviewed for Summer 2017/18. Due to changes of the payment provider used by Sporting Pulse/Basketball Australia, new payment options will become available (e.g. PoliPay - Direct Debit and PayPal)
As the Wembley Basketball Club is a non-profit Club, these fees are used to pay team registrations costs, weekly team fees, assisting with maintenance of training facilities, training materials and administration costs.
All player fees are payable through the online Fox Sporting Pulse system.
Team Managers are responsible for bringing special cases to the attention of the Committee. The Committee will discuss these cases on an individual basis.
Fees for Summer 2017/18 Season
The Committee implemented a fee structure in 2016/17 that better represents the actual costs to the Club. Fees will be reviewed prior to each season.
Fees for Altona and Westgate teams are aligned.
Both associations will follow this fee structure. Ensure you register by the early bird date to get the best possible deal. (Due dates for each will vary per season and members will be notifed via email of these dates)

How Fees Work
So how do the fees work? The Club Committee (through the Treasurer) look at income and expenses each season and determine a fee structure.
At the end of the day, the Club Committee has to balance income and expenses making sure there is enough money to keep teams on the court and pay for initiatives. The main income for the Club are season fees and a small margin of revenue on uniforms. Occassionally we run fund raising activities (Bunnings BBQs, raffles or get some sponsorship) as well.
Our main expenses are team registrations at the beginning of each season paid to the Associations and then court fees or season team fees during the season. Different Associations have alternative fee structures. If teams make finals then obviously there may be more court fees for the Club to cover. As this is unknown at the start of the season the Club has to consider these contingent costs.
Since the Club moved to up front payment of fees through Sporting Pulse the time required to chase up bad debts has reduced.
