2021/22 Hawthorn Magic Tryout Registrations Open

In anticipation of the upcoming 2021/22 VJBL season, registrations are now open for Hawthorn Magic tryouts.  Representative basketball is a great stepping stone for those athletes who want to take the next step in their basketball journey.

  • At this stage there are no confirmed tryout dates – the tryout schedule will be guided by information provided by DHHS & Basketball Victoria – the Hawthorn Magic Committee is working on several contingencies as to how this year’s tryouts will proceed and will communicate this when appropriate;
  • ALL athletes will be required to register online before tryouts begin.  This will both speed up the process and allow the administrative team to accurately communicate with everyone efficiently, plus comply with DHHS regulations and Basketball Victoria Return to Play guidelines;
  • This year we are introducing a tryout registration fee of $25 to cover court hire and administrative costs.  This will be payable at the time of registration;
  • Age Groups
    • Under 12 – 2011, 2012, 2013
    • Under 14 – 2009 & 2010
    • Under 16 – 2007 & 2008
    • Under 18 – 2005 & 2006
    • Under 20 – 2003 & 2004

Athletes wishing to obtain a Permission to Train with another association need to contact the Hawthorn Magic Administrator via email: magic@hawthornbasketball.com.au with the following details:

The Hawthorn Magic Administrator will email the Association the athlete wishes to train with (this can be more than one association); the athlete/parent will be CC’d in on the email.
