Teams

 

Registration of teams to enter the league and cup competitions within the jurisdiction of the Exeter and District Basketball Association are required prior to the AGM in June each year. Application forms are available from March each year and are supplied to clubs already in the league – alternatively if you require to enter the league please contact the General Secretary via this website and I will gladly forward the relevant paperwork to you and discuss options.

The costs for teams each season for initial registration were £50 League entry (including Play-Offs), £50 cup entry (to two knock-out competitions) with a £50 surety held until the end of the season.

Costs have hardly fluctuated for over ten seasons, within the Exeter & District league, cup and Play Off set up it should be remembered that we take care of ALL referee costs (we allocate and cover their expenses so you don’t have to worry about that).

The costs for teams for the each season depend on the number of games within the league that are planned (so obviously subject to number of teams entered, division size etc) but as an indication all divisions costs are:

Approximately £38 per league game arranged (if there are 10 league games it is approximately £380), the £50 entry fee is deducted from this, PLUS if full season costs are paid with first quarterly bill within the set time limits the costs for the year will be subject to a further 10% reduction, therefore would be £292 still to pay (the £50 surety is returned at the end of the year of not used).

All divisional costs are on an equal footing.

There is no further charge (other than the £50 entry fee) for Cup even if you progress further than the original 2 games. There is also no further charge if your team reaches and is involved in the ‘post season’ Play Off competition.

Costs vary dependant on how many league games each team is scheduled to participate in during the season.

Teams are expected to submit short match reports during the season to promote basketball in the area via the FB account.

Entry forms found on the ‘downloads’ tab.

Players

All players have to be registered with Basketball England (BE) to be able to participate in the Exeter and District League as this offers insurance for all players concerned within the organisation. Current costs are:

Exeter and District Basketball Association also has a local registration cost for each player involved in the league and cup programme remains unchanged at £15 for senior players and free for junior players (as part of development within Exeter and District, if players are registered with Basketball England  via our league the cost for juvenile players for local registration has been made free).

For the tenth season in a row player registration costs have either stayed the same (senior players) or been reduced (junior players).

Exeter and District Basketball also have a ‘hardship’ fund to assist players into the game and to remain as players and any requests for assistance are considered by the Executive Committee confidentially.

All insurance forms along with benefits can be found under the ‘downloads’ tab.

Alternatively, follow the link to register electronically!!

Remember Teams have to have players registered by the cut off date each season, and if you are not registered you are not insured, so best practice if to be registered prior to your first involvement.

No Registration number – No Play after this cut off date.

This doesn’t prevent extra / new players being registered after this date.
