Welcome to the Eltham Wildcats Basketball Club for the 2022/23 Summer Season
PROUDLY SUPPORTED BY JELLIS CRAIG NORTH EAST
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.
Training & Games
Training will commence Monday 3rd of October and round 1 of grading tips off on Saturday 8th October.
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.
If you realised you have not enrolled, please contact your respective Age Group Convenor.
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 regard to responses to any team selection queries.
All self-coached teams will need to submit a form for training to be allocated, this will allow us to assess if a training is required and that the appropriate supervision will be provided. Please click here to submit form https://forms.gle/seLBkKPZXsyYFvwY9

Teams Needing Coaches – Please Put Your Hand Up
As you will be able to see from team lists we still have a number of teams who need coaches for the upcoming season. If you are a parent of one of these teams we ask you to strongly consider putting your hand up. Similarly an older sibling or family friend can be another great option for these positions. If your team does have a coach but you have an interest in coaching yourself, please put your hand up to coach another team! It can be a great experience to coach a brand new group of kids, and we are able to work with the EDJBA on not having your games clash with your own child’s. We work tirelessly to fill these positions but we rely on family members and friends to fill these positions, so please, if you are willing and have a basic understanding of the game, put your hand up and join the team! Contact the relevant age group convenor if you or someone else are willing to take a team.
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.
Beginner Domestic Coaches Clinic
If you missed the Beginner Domestic Coaches Clinic on Tuesday night and interested in a another session please contact email@example.com and that can be arranged.
