Dear Players, Parents and Carers,
Welcome to 2022 Raiders basketball season. Thank you for registering and we hope you enjoy the season. There are a few issues I wish to clarify and items you will need to be aware of.
Most players who registered last year will have been inundated with emails from Sports TG advising that their membership for BWA has expired and they need to re-register. This is a glitch of changing systems, please ignore anything from SportsTG.
The COVID situation is confusing. I will regularly post updates through our website.
Masks - ALL people 12 years and over (intended for high school), must wear a mask when indoor, unless playing, umpiring, or actively coaching. Masks must be replaced when not on court and sitting on bench for a rest.
While Raiders does not have a stance on mandatory vaccination, we are governed by the directives, guidelines, legislation , and regulations given to us by the facility providers governing bodies and State Government. While there is no requirement to be vaccinated to play basketball (WA Basketball media release), there are limitations imposed due to the fact we train and play indoors.
The current advice (which can change):
Venues that DO currently require mandatory vaccination in players and spectators 16 years and over:
Lords Sports stadium.
Holy Rosary School Gym.
Venues that DO NOT currently require mandatory vaccination in players and spectators 16 years and over:
Bendat Basketball Stadium
Newman Marcellin and Newman Lavala
Unfortunately Raiders, and Hawks will not be in a position to specifically cater for those who are not vaccinated. If someone is not vaccinated and wishes to discretely discuss further with me, please email me
As always, we are always looking for people who are have a passion for basketball and are keen to coach. If you know of any older students, siblings, or relations who are keen, please ask them to contact Paul Trettel
We are searching for sponsors for our 2022 season to ensure we can continue all of the programs we currently run, there are various sponsorship options. If you are able, please check out the information on our website
