FAQ

How do I join the club?

We encourage all interested parents/players to contact the club via email aztecbcb@gmail.com. We accept enquiries all year round.

Near the end of each season each Age Group Coordinator (AGC) will work with existing Coaches to consider team placements for new players. In most cases your child will find a team, however this is largely dependent on our continued access to Coaches.

How are players selected for teams?

Where possible we try to keep players of similar skill together across seasons and age groups. An exception to this rule is the progression from winter to summer seasons, as some players move up an age group based on their year of birth.

At the end of each season, Age Group Coordinators are prompted for feedback about teams and players. In some cases certain players may be recommended for different divisions, and this will be discussed with parents accordingly.

Players wanting to progress into higher divisions are encouraged to speak to their Coach, as we have many opportunities for players to develop their skills in addition to weekly training sessions.

How do I get my uniform?

All Uniform items can be purchased via the Online Shop. Playing top numbers will be allocated by the club unless a specific number is requested.

All players must wear current uniform. Singlets are expected to be tucked in. For safety, only sensible sneakers with adequate grip should be worn.

Secondhand uniforms are available but supplies are limited.

If you have any queries regarding uniforms, please contact your Age Group Coordinator or our Uniforms Coordinator aztecbcb.uniforms@gmail.com.

Depending on the issue, items will be communicated with club committee for discussion by one of the three people above.

Where do we practice and train?

We currently utilise the Indoor Gym at Bendigo South East Secondary College for the majority of our training sessions every Thursday night.  The entrance to the Gym is located on Keck St, Flora Hill.

We have access to multiple courts at this facility, which allows for more than one age group to share a time slot.

As a club we favour a group training environment, allowing for a wider variety of drills and also providing the benefit of being able to deliver consistent instruction and guidance to all players regardless of division.

Given the huge numbers of athletes that play for Aztec's, we can not run our training sessions without the help of our awesome coaches. Most of our coaches started out just helping or standing in where needed, so if you are coaching one of our teams this season, please come down to training and help out, as many hands make lite work and make training more enjoyable for everyone!

It is expected that all players and coaches attend training where possible.

What are club fees for?

The majority of your club fee goes straight to the stadium for match fees. We've taken the approach of collecting match fees upfront so that games are paid for by the club, rather than relying on the cumbersome process of parents having to collect small change each game night and paying for their team at the sports office (so you don't need to hunt for cash on game day!).

A small amount goes to the club, and is used for venue hire for training and equipment where required. The club also has a number of administrative fees that need to be covered each season. Where possible, we look to subsidise other expenses like uniforms.

Club fees are generally paid at the beginning of each season.  In the case of fees not being paid, players will be deactivated from the scoring system and will not be able to take the court until their fees are finalised.

We can offer flexible payment options.

If you have any queries in relation to fees, we encourage you to contact the club ASAP. 

Please note that our fees do not cover Player's Insurance which must be purchased from the Bendigo Basketball Association annually.  We will provide you with a link to organise this insurance after you have registered with Aztecs.
