    Frequently Asked Questions

    What is the cost?

    Registration Fees are calculated to cover the costs of tournament entry, stadium hire for trainings and other incidental costs. In 2019 the fees amounted to $125 per player, plus the cost of entry into any additional tournaments (normally ~$50). Fees for 2020 are not expected to be materially different to prior years and will be communicated when squads are announced.

    There is no charge for the Try-outs.

    When do I pay?

    Fees must be paid prior to the MRBA 3x3 Competition on 24 November, via the MRBA Sports TG site (link coming soon).

    What is the commitment?

    Athletes must participate in the MRBA 3x3 Competition on November 24 in order to qualify.

    Athletes will be expected to attend approximately 6 training sessions in the lead up to your tournament (normally on Saturday mornings), plus the actual Country Championships tournaments (see dates below). Coaches are being encouraged to enter squads in one additional tournament this year, which will be agreed once teams are announced. These lead-in tournaments will be recommended, but optional.

    What are the dates & locations?

    Can I play if I live outside the Macedon Ranges?

    It is a MRBA policy that we maximise the opportunities for players who live in the Macedon Ranges. Athlete’s that wish to participate must also participate in our local 3x3 competition. Athletes living outside the Macedon Ranges are not eligible. Special consideration may be made where an athlete does not have a local Country Association; and where there are not enough Macedon Ranges athletes able to complete a squad, although this must be approved by Basketball Victoria Country.

    How many players are chosen in each squad?

    Representative squads are normally 10 players, plus 2 emergencies (who are not required to attend the actual tournament). Attendance at the try-out is mandatory to be selected, and the MRBA retains the right to choose the best available players based also on known skills and abilities and team fit. If players cannot attend the tryout, then consideration can be made by the MRBA Executive.

    The Country Championships tournaments are usually gruelling weekends, involving sometimes 3 or 4 games per day. Thus teams are chosen to try and ensure players are not overloaded and can compete at their best for the whole tournament. It should be noted that these are representative teams, and whilst all players will be given opportunities, the objective is to achieve the highest possible position for the association, so athletes are not given equal playing time.

    Is this the same as the MRBA Tournament Teams?

    MRBA has started forming squads to attend Tournaments – called our MRBA Tournament Program. These squads are designed to provide everyone with the opportunity to play more basketball, and thus whilst there are try-outs held, these are predominantly used to determine how many teams will be entered, and how to grade players into teams of similar abilities. This program is separate to the MRBA Country Championships which are one-off tournaments held by Basketball Victoria Country each year where every Country Association has the opportunity to send their best available representative team (one per gender/age group) to compete for rankings within Country Victoria.
