FHS Basketball Club is currently run by volunteers who have children at Frankston High School. The club has grown to more than 25 teams in the last few years and competing in basketball associations across the Peninsula.
Our biggest basketball association involvement is with the FDBA (Frankston & District Basketball Association) however if your team is planning on playing with another basketball association (eg WPBA (Western Port Basketball Association), MDBA (Mornington & District Basketball Association) we are here to help but strongly advise to familiarise yourself with the association’s expectations, by-laws and program overall. Direct links provided below.
How Do I Register A TEAM?
FDBA Competition – To play in the FDBA competition you must register your team through an affiliated club like FHS Basketball Club. We have an all-inclusive low fee* which covers administration, team registration, weekly game fees and training. One payment for each season.
*This payment may vary each season as the duration of the season will change depending on the Victorian School Terms.
MDBA / WPBA Competitions and all other basketball associations you can register through FHS Basketball Club however you can also register as an independent FHS Basketball team which can cost less. Please CLICK HERE to contact us for more information.
FHS Basketball Club teams must have at least 6 players and need to be registered before the season starts.
If you have a team (minimum 6 players) the Team Manager is to liaise with our club. Please see Coaches / Team Managers section below.
All players MUST BE REGISTERED online in PlayHQ before commencing training and their first match.
To register as a player you will need to contact your Team Manager to obtain a link to register with the PlayHQ system. Each season the club will have a link to follow to make this process simple and stress free.
How Do I Find A Team?
Players are responsible for finding or creating their own team however you can submit your details to I’M LOOKING FOR A TEAM and our staff will try to assist. In the meantime, try to get a group of friends and organise a team to register.

Coaches / Team Managers
FHS Basketball Club appreciates the volunteer work of our coaches and team managers. Our coaches (and assistant coaches) are responsible for the coaching and training of our basketballers. Our team managers are the team’s first point of contact. Team managers are responsible for communicating game fixtures, parent scoring roster and arranging fill-in players. All teams are required to organise their own Coach and Team Manager. As we are a high school it is common for older age group teams to play without a coach. These teams are welcome at FHS Basketball Club however they need to be mindful they will need adults present for scoring and to assist with any concerns that may arise (for example, injuries). If a team does not have a coach training will still be available to them under the supervision of a parent of the team who has a WWCC (Working With Children Check). This situation will be discussed with the train coordinator in more detail.
WHAT VOLUNTEER REQUIREMENTS ARE THERE TO COACH OR TEAM MANAGE?
FHS Basketball Club is committed to providing and maintaining a healthy and child-safe environment. In order to comply with the school’s policy, all volunteers must please provide FHS Basketball Club with the following:
- Members Protection Form (be witnessed in the same manner as a Statutory Declaration)
How Do I Buy Uniform?
Our uniforms can be ordered directly from the online order platform for FHS Basketball Club and First Ever. Each player orders the uniform and it is delivered directly to your home.
Uniforms cost $80 plus postage. Please note all our singlets are reversible.
It is important when ordering uniforms that the Team Manager coordinates player numbers.
The club is happy for the players to select their own numbers but you must make sure there are no number clashes within the team.
Legal numbers that the players may use are 00, 0 – 99
All FHS Basketball Club teams are required to play in the official uniform.
All teams have an opportunity to train, at Franston High School Indoor Basketball Stadium, with their coach to improve on their skills and build confidence for the games. Training times vary each season and are at the discretion of Frankston High School and the FHS Basketball Club Training Coordinator. Each season Coaches and Team Managers will be asked to notify the training coordinator of their request to train and be expected to fulfill the schools requirements for these training sessions. Not all teams may choose to run training (especially the older age groups/rep teams).
If a team does not have a coach, training will still be available to them under the supervision of a parent of the team who has a WWCC. This situation will be discussed with the training coordinator in more detail.
