Very soon after registration closes, the Derinya Basketball Committee will inform all team managers the lists for the coming winter season.
The DBC will try and assist a team place for all Derinya primary school players in winter/summer season, therefore it may be necessary to change teams from previous years. The Committee does it’s best not to disrupt teams but, at times, due to difficult player numbers, this is unavoidable.
There is no guarantee that teams will stay the same each year.
Please refer to our club philosophy on this website.
Once the teams are formed for the upcoming season the coach from each team is notified by the Training Coordinator, Jacqui Embleton
Training is at Derinya Primary School Basketball Stadium after school during the week.
Training nights are determined by the coaches and are subject to availability of allocated times. Training sessions are 45 minutes for each team, with first training session starting at 3.45pm and the last training session finishing at 7.30pm.
Once the teams are formed it is required that the roles of coach and team manager for each team are filled by parent volunteers. It would not be possible for teams to play in the competition without parents volunteering for these important roles. Please consider taking on one of these roles for your child’s team. Volunteer coaches can register via the "COACHES CORNER" page on this website.
AT THE GAMES
All parents in each team are required to help with scoring if they have not volunteered as a coach or team manager. Generally a roster is created by the team manager. There is also a cost for every game to cover the weekly match fee for each team, and will generally be calculated and communicated by the team manager.
