Individual Registration Project

What is the Basketball Victoria (BV) – Individual Registration Project? 

The Individual Registration Project is about aligning all basketball participants across Victoria under a common registration fee structure and user experience, ensuring a standardised online registration process.

A common registration process will provide many benefits including, an accurate state-wide database to assist with participant and competition management, as well as providing a clear and consistent user experience for all participants, clubs and associations.

What is changing?

Process:             compulsory online individual registration

Technology:     new platform – ‘built by basketball, for basketball’ – PlayHQ

Fees:                   No ‘additional fees’

  • Equitable (BV) fees in Victoria (country and/or metro)
  • Realignment to an individual participant registration model in Metropolitan Melbourne

Note: a proportion of a metropolitan participants fees already come to BV via associations passing on a ‘team based’ fee component, individual registration will replace that.

User experience:   easy, fast and user friendly for participants and administrators

What does registration with Basketball Victoria as an individual cover?
