PLAYING CONDITIONS | BY-LAWS | CODES OF CONDUCTS
All teams and their members must be familiar with Basketball Hawthorn Playing Conditions, Competition By-Laws and Basketball Victoria Codes of Conduct. Copies can be found at the following links.
PLAY HQ – COMPETITION MANAGEMENT SYSTEM
In 2020, Basketball Victoria introduced a new member and competition management solution known as PlayHQ. This system replaces SportsTG, including a new online scoring system.
FEES & FINANCIAL STRUCTURE
BASKETBALL VICTORIA – Annual Participant License
Basketball Victoria has an individual member registration system in conjunction with the roll out of PlayHQ. When each player registers, the system will check their individual license status, and when applicable, pay an annual fee directly to Basketball Victoria.
Players are charged for a new 365-day licence if they do not already have a current license that covers them for the entirety of the season they are registering to. This license covers any Basketball Victoria sanctioned competition, training or event, with any club, team or association, allowing the participant to play as many times as they like within that 365-days period.

BASKETBALL HAWTHORN – Financial Resilience Levy
As a result of the COVID pandemic and subsequent closure of operations, in 2021 Basketball Hawthorn is introducing a financial resilience fee to help pay down historic debt in order to future-proof the finances of the Association and to provide the opportunity for enhanced investment and infrastructure in the future. We want to recommence play in a safe, affordable and financially responsible manner to provide for a sustainable association well into the future. The financial resilience model carefully enables competitions to be run in a profitable but affordable manner that enables all Basketball Hawthorn debts to be repaid in full within four years.
This fee is payable by each player when completing their individual member registration. Click HERE for more detailed information about the resilience levy.
TEAMMO – Senior Domestic Competition Match Fees
Basketball Hawthorn operates a cashless system for all registration and match fees – no cash payments are taken at venues. For Autumn 2021, Basketball Hawthorn has expanded its partnership with Teammo for all senior domestic competitions. Teammo provides a safe, secure and versatile solution for teams to manage team accounts:
– Collect fees from team mates
– Pay matches directly from the app weekly or in advance
