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 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... firstname.lastname@example.org
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 (Development Grants paid to Regions).
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.
