In anticipation of the upcoming VJBL season (season start TBC), registrations are now open for Hawthorn Magic tryouts.
- At this stage there are no confirmed tryout dates as we await further information from DHHS & Basketball Victoria – the Hawthorn Magic Committee are working on a number of contingencies as to how this year’s tryouts will proceed;
- 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;
- Information regarding registration fees etc. for the upcoming season will be communicated once VJBL confirm the start to the season;
- In light of the impact of COVID-19 on our 2019/20 season, we have made some significant adjustments to our import policy for next season – found here. The key message of the policy is that:
An import player will only be accepted if they meet one of the below exemptions:
- the import player has a sibling who represented the Hawthorn Magic Representative Program in the 2019/2020 season
- the import player participated in the Hawthorn Basketball Domestic Program for the 2019/2020 or 2020/2021 summer season
- the import player resides in the Inner East as of 1st November 2020
- the import player attended school in the Inner East during 2020
