One team, One dream. 

Playing Representative basketball is a privilege, and a reflection of players skills, sportsmanship, understanding of the game and positive attitude towards development. Our program aims to provide players and coaches with education, development and, opportunities to improve, as well as represent SDBA at other BNSW elite athlete trials and programs. We pride ourselves on the sportsmanship and conduct of our representative players and the result that each team and individual achieve. 



Wearing the Scorchers uniform means that players are committed to: 

  • Compulsory Weekly training sessions 
  • Attending representative games. 
  • Developing skills, game intelligence and toughness throughout the season, which can be applied to all levels of the game
  • Paying the required Representative levies 
  • Actively contribute to volunteering your time to the Association at Holiday Clinics, community stalls or other opportunities                   

SDBA enter teams into Basketball NSW’s Junior Metro League.

Videoing & Photographing at Junior League Games

Junior games are allowed to be filmed, however, should a member of one of the teams let a supervisor know that they do not consent to their child being filmed, then filming must stop. NOTE: There is to be no live-streaming of any Junior League games.

Photographs may be taken but they must not identify the children participating, i.e.; no photographs to be posted that actually name or otherwise identify any personal details of the children who are participating.

No photographs of an offensive nature are to be taken, nor in or near to toilets or change rooms, as per the BNSW Spectators Code of Conduct.
