Once you click on the correct registration link, you will be presented with a screen that displays a Season Information screen; please click on Get Started
If it is your first time using PlayHQ, you will be required to create an account.  The account should be created using a parent’s details. Once the account has been created, you will be able to log into the system and register each of the players accordingly.

When you register your child with Wattle Park Saints, Basketball Victoria requires each player to pay a “Basketball Victoria Annual Participation Licence” fee for insurance purposes.  The Basketball Victoria annual fee is $29 for Juniors and $43 for players 18yrs and over.  This fee will be listed as a separate item at payment and will cover the player for 365 days (2 seasons). 

This season the registration fee has been set at $130. Unfortunately we have had to raise our club fees due to increases in training and other operating costs. This will also as a separate line item. If you register after August 14th 2023, an additional $50 late payment fee will apply.
Therefore, for new players the total registration payment for juniors is $159 and for players 18 years and over is $173.

If you are registering a 2nd and subsequent child, you will register each separately and under the same account name (i.e. the parents email address).  The system will automatically apply a 5% discount on the “club registration fee” for 2nd and subsequent family members.  

If you are playing multiple games (e.g. Friday and Saturday) you need to register for each game using the links above.

Please take care with registering your child into the correct competition and ensure their details are entered correctly.  Any questions or issues, please contact Sally Marks on
