Join a Junior Team
Willetton Basketball Association currently has over 500 teams participating in our Junior and Senior competitions.
All sporting clubs and associations require volunteers for coaching, managing or even just general organisation regardless of backround or familiarity. Parents and volunteers giving their time to our sporting comunity is what make it great and with all roles involved please contact your clubs or us about what's expected and how we can help you.
Our Junior domestic competitions run from Under 8s through to Under 18s for males and females. There are 7 clubs. Most competitions are played on SATURDAYS (fixtures here) during school terms, although there are also competitions on weekday evenings for older age groups. Summer season runs Term 4 and term 1; Winter season is Terms 2 &3. 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 domestic to try out for the Tigers.
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. See the attached document for more details regarding this.
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 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 ring (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
