Geelong United Basketball have been working hard to get a competition up and running for all of us.
As an Association, they have put out a tentative start date of July 20th, 2020. This is great news for all basketballers!!
Please note, there will be new rules and regulations when we go back to our beautiful game. There will be structures we will need to follow, sanitation and sign ins etc as well as lock out times (so no turning up to a game as the buzzer goes!). It is of upmost importance that we adhere to these regulations and rules so that we can continue to play.
So, to get the ball rolling on getting this season off the ground we need to do a few things!
Firstly- Coaches will be contacted to reach out to their players to see if they are continuing with winter season. Our winter season teams will also be available on our website within the coming week.
Thirdly- we are working on gaining access to some training venues so that teams can get together before and during the school holidays to get back on the court and get used to each other. Again, this will come with its own rules and regulations.
I’m sure we are all very excited to get started and all have one million questions, but please continue to be patient, we will endeavour to share all information as it comes to light, and if we haven’t answered your questions, please write your question on our Facebook page- it may be the same as 5 others.
Thank you all for being so wonderful, and I cannot wait to see you all out on the court again soon.
PlayHQ is the new platform that Basketball Victoria (and all domestic competitions) are using instead of SportsTG. It was made by basketball, for basketball.

Each season you must re-register either yourself or your children (you will create a login for yourself the first time, then you can select who you are re-registering each season). Here, you will pay your Basketball Victoria fees once per year, your Geelong united fees and Dolphins fees once per season- no more going to two different websites to pay!
You or your child will then be put into their team and appear on the team sheet at every game.
Registration should take only around 2 minutes!
Some important points
- You/your child cannot play if they aren’t registered or haven’t paid- if you need help, just let us know and we can assist you
- Coach’s will also need to register on Play HQ. It doesn’t cost anything, but you will need to enter in the details of your Working with Children Check.
- Unfortunately, there is not an app for this program yet, but you can make the webpage an icon on your phone to work like an app.
- All registrations need to be in and paid for by round ONE. There is no grace period of a game or two for winter season. If a player takes the court unregistered, the game will be forfeited.
- If you have received an email from Chantal with a discount code for your Geelong United fees, this means that you paid your Geelong United fees at the start of summer, therefore are covered for winter season. This code CANNOT be shared and is specific to you. Apply this at the checkout.
PLEASE REGISTER AS SOON AS YOU CAN TO ASSIST US IN ENTERING TEAMS AND ENSURING EVERYONE IS READY FOR THE WINTER SEASON!
