Any child interested in playing basketball with the Canterbury Cougars should register their interest by clicking here. They will be added to our waiting list

If a place becomes available during the season, then a player, subject to the coach's approval, may be placed in an appropriate team. Otherwise the player's name will remain on the waiting list and every effort will be made to place them at the beginning of the next season. Please note that this will be subject to spaces in existing teams being available or sufficient numbers of new players joining to enable the formation of a new team. Teams are generally limited to 8 players.

Prior to the enrolment day of a new season, usually in August for the Summer Season and March for the Winter Season, application forms will be forwarded to players on the waiting list. Please ensure that the form is lodged by the deadline indicated and that fees are paid to confirm the player's interest. If a player cannot be placed, the fee will be returned.

Team managers and coaches please note; all enquiries from new players should be referred to the Player Coordinator for placement. Automatic placement into your team should not be assumed for reasons of equality across an age group.

All continuing players must re-enrol each season. Re-enrolment forms are provided to team managers who will distribute amongst the team. All re-enrolment forms must be returned to the team manager. 

The forms must be returned by the advertised deadline with the next season's fees. Failure to do so will jeopardise the player's position, as teams have to be finalised for submission to the HBA.

As a matter of policy, continuing players have priority over new players, or players returning after a season or more off.
