**Part Payments**

If you have selected to pay part of your fees, please note the second payment will be due before Saturday 25th May 2019, Round 5.

**Payment Plans**

Should you need to enter into a seasonal payment plan with Vales Basketball Club, please contact Moira the Treasurer at valestreasurer@gmail.com PRIOR TO ROUND 1. Previous payment plans will need to be finalised before a new agreement can be entered into.

We do not ask you to pay what is out of your budget, however, payment plans must be adhered to.
The Winter Season has 19 rounds (inc finals), this equates to approx. $14 per round for U10-U18 to play basketball from April to September.

If commitment to part payments or payment plans are not met, please note that the committee will be removing unfinancial players from team lists. This can effect your player's eligibility to compete in finals as they may not meet the number of games required to qualify for finals. Players will not be allowed to be added to the computerised team list courtside, and coaches and team managers will be advised that unfinancial players are not to be allowed onto the court.

**What am I paying for?**

The fee per player covers the following club expenses:

- Training Venue Hire
- Player Insurance
- Team Registrations
- Dandenong Basketball Association Referee Fee
- Dandenong Basketball Association Team Sheet Fees
- Vales Presentations, Family Days and other Vales events

As a club, we do not run many fundraising events throughout the year, therefore, as a not-for-profit club, we rely on registration payments from our members. Some clubs add a fundraising to levy to their fees, we do not wish to head down this path, so we kindly ask, please pay your player’s registration.

**Game Location**

Dandenong Stadium is the main venue for age groups Under 8 – Under 16 on a Saturday, with games for Under 8 starting at 8am and the last games for Under 16s around starting at approx. 6pm.
Under 18s and Under 23s play on Sunday afternoons with games starting at approx. 3pm.

Occasionally, games need to be scheduled by Dandenong Basketball Association to satellite locations. These may be at St John’s Regional College or Rowville Secondary College, however, you will be advised by your team manager of game details.

There is a door fee which is charged by Dandenong Basketball Association and is $3 for players and parents. Children under 12 are free.

**Training Venues**

Vales Basketball trains out of Dandenong Basketball Stadium, Chandler Park Primary School, Keysborough Secondary College - Banksia & Acacia Campuses.

**Keeping track of your games**

Parents are encouraged to install the Game Day App to your phone. This app will give you game times, locations, and you can also track player stats.

**Housekeeping**

Parents are reminded that our coaches, team managers and committee are all volunteers. Should you wish to discuss any issues, please seek out your team manager or committee member. We prefer all inquiries, complaints and compliments to be sent though via email.

Parents and players are also reminded that any inquiries to Dandenong Basketball Association are to go through the committee first to resolve. DBA prefers to not deal directly with members until they have lodged their issues with the club they play for. All inquiries must be in writing.

As a club we will not tolerate any discrimination or abuse towards fellow players, coaches, team managers, referees or officials. Please ask your team manager or committee member for further reading on Conduct and club information.


WE LOOK FORWARD TO SEEING YOU ALL IN WINTER 2019! #GOVALES
