Frequently Asked Questions

Q If I'm a Basketball England member, am I automatically a member of BasketballSUSSEX?
A No, membership of BasketballSUSSEX is covered in our Constitution. For example, a member of a club entering teams into our competitions would be classed as a BasketballSUSSEX member, as would a Referee or Table Official officiating any BasketballSUSSEX competition game. Please also remember that being a member of BasketballSUSSEX means you agree to adhere to our own rules, regulations, policies and procedures; as documented in our Handbook. These are in addition to any Basketball England condition of membership; for example, their Code of Ethics & Conduct.

Q I have a BasketballSUSSEX local league registration question, who can I contact?
A If you have any questions regarding BasketballSUSSEX processes, please contact our Registrations Officer by email... registrations@basketballsussex.co.uk

Q  How do I register a National League player or coach to play in BasketballSUSSEX competitions?
A  We are awaiting details of how to do this and will advise clubs in due course. Please note there will be a BasketballSUSSEX "NBL member" administration fee charged to clubs (£3 junior / £5 senior), clubs will be invoiced later in the year with payment due to BasketballSUSSEX. This charge has been introduced because of the way Basketball England are now reconciling our membership rebate.

Q  Do I need to assign players to a team when the club has multiple teams and what is the process?
A  Clubs with multiple teams in the league need to assign players to a team within the Basketball England membership system.
