Winter Season 2018 - Bring it on (18 April 2018)

Stay warm and keep on bouncing

Here we go Wembley. Teams are ready to hit the court after the school holidays. We have 14 teams at Altona and 9 teams suiting up at Westgate.

Our team are: Waterrats, White Knights, Whips, Whippets, Warlords, Wildthings, Wizards, Witches, Wasps, Wanted, Wolfpack, Wallabies, Warriors, Winners, Werewolves, Wizkids, Wagtails, Whirlwinds, Woodpeckers, Wazzas, Willows, Wildfire and Wonders.

Over the Winter season we will start forming up some new u8 teams for Summer. If you are interested in joining an existing team or creating a brand new team please drop us an email with name, date of birth, gender and experience to waitinglist@wembleybasketball.com.au.

Don't forget to order Hoodies if you need them, take a blanket for kids to sit on during those cold mornings and get a coffee before heading to the stadium on the Saturday mornings.


Electronic Scoring at Altona from Winter round 2 

(18 April 2018)

Please be aware that electronic (iPad) scoring will be in place at Altona from round 2. It is important that players are registered so that they show up on the electronic scoresheet. We would expect some teething problems but bear with the Association as they make the change. We expect it to be easier in the long run.
