Clearances

Athletes may choose to transfer clubs for a variety of reasons. However, before transferring, athletes (and where appropriate, their parents) need to be aware that a clearance may be required as part of the respective competition by-laws.

Basketball Victoria encourages all athletes and families to contact competition administrators directly if they have any questions or queries about the clearance process.

For Basketball Victoria and Basketball Australia competitions, clearances must be processed before an athlete is eligible to transfer to another club or association.

All players who have registered to play in a senior representative competition in Australia and who wish to transfer to another club must be cleared from their old club before taking the court with their new club.  The clearance requirement does not elapse within a given time-frame.

Melb. Utd. VJBL and your local associations junior domestic registration is separately held.  A player may play for one club in VJBL and another in Big V.  In this instance a clearance is not required as Big V is a senior competition.  The player will however require a clearance if they have ever registered to play Big V at another club.
