A few important things to know…
Our preference of Age Groups is that of 10,12,14,16,18, which aligns with VJBL, where numbers permit we will look to create an A and B Grade Competition. This can only happen when numbers in an Age Group reach 56. We encourage everyone to register as early as possible as this gives us the best chance to create A and B Grades in our preferred Age Groupings.
What happens if I miss early bird?
If you miss the Early Bird registration period you can still register, the only difference will be the registration costs.
When do registrations close?
Registrations for the 2021 Winter Junior Domestic Season close on midnight the 18th April.
What happens if I miss close date?
Players who miss the registration period will be placed on a waiting list, this doesn’t mean you will miss out there still maybe a chance to register, however this will only occur on two occasion;
Numbers of registrations is close to the required A and B Grade requirement
Until each team has 8 registered players.

JUNIOR DOMESTIC SEASON INFORMATION
Each season, once registrations close, our Junior Domestic Management Group review the registrations and form teams to ensure an even competition as much as possible. The teams are provisional for the first three weeks where players can be moved to ensure the evenness of the competition. The teams are generally released approximately 10 days before the competition starts, so that singlet collection can take place on the weekend prior to the competition starts. The current team lists can be found below.
Wallan Basketball has just transitioned to the PlayHQ platform for all fixtures and ladders. We encourage all of our families to download the Team App (link at the top of this page) and add the "Wallan Basketball" team to your app. This gives you access to all of the fixtures and ladders for the various age groups. The current season fixtures and ladders can be found below.
The 2021 Summer Season will not have the team based training due to COVID restrictions. Going forward, we hope to re-implement this into future seasons. The training is designed to help not only develop the individual skills of players but also to introduce team building and team plays into the learning. Essentially players training for 30min as a team prior to their game rather than as a whole age group. Coaches will be supported with training plans and on court help from BigV players.
LOCAL COMPETITION RULES
Wallan Basketball is operated under the FIBA basketball rules, which can be found below.
In addition to these rules, we also have modified rules for Under 10 and 12 basketball, which includes a small 3-point line, as well as a shorter free-throw line and a 5-second inside the key rule (rather than 3 seconds).
Wallan Basketball has also adopted a local "Sin bin" policy which is enforced to protect our referees and encourage respect of our officials. A copy of the Sin Bin Policy can be found below.
Wallan Basketball operate our domestic program in accordance with our domestic guidelines. In addition to those guidelines, as a member association of Basketball Victoria Country, we also uphold the Codes of Conduct, which can be found below.
Our junior domestic program is where our junior players participate and enjoy their weekly basketball experience, starting at Under 10s, which is for children turning 8 or 9 by 31 December in that year, through to Under 18s, which is for children turning 16 and 17 by 31 December in that year.
For those children under that age group, we run an Aussie Hoops program on Friday nights at 5:00pm. This is a separate program to Wallan Basketball and registrations for this program can be made through the button at the top of this page.
We also use the domestic program to help identify talent for development and move through the pathways into representative basketball, which includes VJBL, BVC Country Championships and other association-level tournaments.
More information about representative basketball can be found here.
As part of our player development, we offer school holiday programs and one on one coaching with Big V players.
