Welcome to the Eltham Wildcats Basketball Club for the 2020/21 Summer Season. We have a team of volunteers who’ve done the work in putting together in excess of 280 teams for this EDJBA in a much shorter time frame than usual. We all owe them a very great deal for their time, effort and care to ensure each child is well looked after. This season should be a celebration of the return to basketball, something many people have missed for 9 months.
If you have any concerns or issues with selections, availability or alike, your line of communication is through the Age Group Convenor. Office staff or coaches are unable to assist and will rightly steer you back to the Age Group Convenor via email.
What does the team number mean? It is nothing more than a guide. We do not expect the team numbers to grade in order from 1-20, in fact we expect them to be out of order. There are a number of reasons for this such as, but not limited to; friendship requests, training requests and game time requests.
Player Not listed on any team
First, please double check you have looked through the relevant age group of your child. If a name does not appear on any team list it might be because the player has not been registered. No player can participate in a team until they are registered. These players are not insured, whilst as we come out of COVID, we’re under strict limitations as to who can enter.
Others who registered late maybe on a waiting list. If you realised you have not enrolled, you can register on the waiting list here https://docs.google.com/forms/d/e/1FAIpQLSelwU5P7CTM1EcCCsDqzWkdB-m0TYbQlI75m7ycYYAag0UAqg/viewform?usp=sf_link You will be contacted if a spot becomes available to your child.
Team Placement Queries
If you do wish to proceed with a request to review selection or correction of error, please contact only the age group convenor by email as listed in attachment.
The convenor will record your requests, and convey them to the selection committees. We will respond as soon as we consider that most requests have arrived, so they can be reviewed together. We emphasise talk only to the Age Group Convenor. Private arrangements with coaches will not be endorsed. Again, we please ask for your patience in regards to responses to any team selection queries.
We understand that there is a lot of uncertainty in regards to the restrictions that will be in place come the start of the season. The Eltham Basketball Club is confident that we will be able to comfortably host trainings and games at our venues when the next stage of restrictions is formally announced on Sunday November 22nd.
We ask that you have patience in regards to the exact details, we will have this out to participants as soon as we have the up to date and most accurate information.
May we draw your attention to some helpful attachments below:

EDJBA League Link
Eltham plays in a competition called the Eastern District Junior Basketball Association (EDJBA).
You can find the link to the EDJBA Website here – https://edjba.com.au/ This is where you will find information about the league, and most importantly your game times. We expect the first round will be released some time mid next week.
