Darebin Giants Domestic Registration

The 2020 Autumn Season will begin on Saturday 1st February, 2020 and online registrations will now be through Basketball Victoria’s new registration platform – PlayHQ. The registration link (follow the link on the right) will direct you to the PlayHQ website, where you will need to setup a user account. Only one account is required per family.

Player registration is $190 per player, per season. This includes $100 player registration and an additional $90 for the weekly team sheet fee ($40 per team) for the season (excluding finals). This team sheet fee was previously paid in cash on game day. 

There are 2 payment options:

  • Option 1 – Pay in full, reduced fee of $180 per player
  • Option 2 – Pay in 4 instalments – total $190 with $100 charged upon registration (enter the voucher code listed in the registration information window). The remaining $90 will be charged in 3 x $30 instalments during Feb, Mar and April 2020 via the Ezidebit facility.

Please note that we cannot guarantee team placement for late registrations.


A uniform (playing singlet and shorts) is $90 and can be ordered through our uniforms coordinator. New players will be contacted prior to the season starting to place their order. Current players can order any additional uniform items by contacting the uniform coordinator directly.


Upon payment of registration, refunds will only be issued if your child cannot be placed into a team. Players who withdraw after team placement is finalised, are not eligible for a refund. Players who cannot complete the season due to injury, may be subject to a partial refund. All medical refund requests require a medical certificate and should be emailed to the Giants coordinator, at giants@idba.org.au outlining the nature of the refund request. Approved refunds are subject to admin fees and net of any processing fees. For further clarification, refer to our refund policy – https://idba.org.au/policies/

Walkover fees

It is the teams’ responsibility to ensure they have enough players for the game. If a walkover is given, the penalty (currently $90) will be payable by the team, not the club.
