Frequently Asked Questions

Can I join the club?

All teams for Winter 2024 season (terms 2 and 3 2024) are full. If you were on our waiting list and did not receive an enrolment email then unfortunately we were unable to offer you a place this season.


We encourage players wanting to get started to try the Coburg Basketball Association's  Aussie Hoops and holiday programs.

At the beginning of term 3 we will open our waiting list for Summer 24/25 season, which will run in term 4 2024 and term 1 2025. If you were on our Winter 2024 waiting list you will need to enrol on the Summer 24/25 waiting list when it opens. We do not automatically transfer names to the new waiting list because we need to know that players are still interested in joining the club.

What teams do you have?

We have teams ranging from U8 to U18 playing in Coburg Basketball Association's junior domestic competition. Our teams are open to all genders.

What do I need to know about the games?

Games are on Saturday, starting between 8.00am and 4.00pm. While times vary, U8-U12s usually play in the morning and the U14-U18s in the afternoon.

Games occur at a number of venues (mostly schools) in a range of inner-north suburbs including Brunswick, Northcote, Coburg, Pascoe Vale South, Dallas and Preston.

We encourage our players to participate in tournaments such as Coburg Basketball Association's 3 x 3 Challenge and associations' specialist tournaments to build their game time experience.

What do I need to know about training?

Teams train once a week. Training sessions start between 4.00 and 5.30, last for an hour, and occur Monday to Friday depending on the team.

We run additional, optional programs including:

  • Girls in sport -  combined sessions for girls across the club with guest trainers including WNBL players and Coburg Giants coaches

  • Before-school fitness sessions - for players in our U14+ teams

We improve the training delivered to players by developing our coaches' skills through Basketball Victoria courses, training resources and a coach-the-coach program.

We encourage our players to participate in holiday academies, such as those run by Deakin Boomers and Melbourne United, to access high level training opportunities.

We train at Brunswick Secondary College, University High School, Brunswick South West Primary School, and Brunswick Stadium.

What does it cost?

There are three costs associated with playing with Brunswick Magic:

  • In Winter 2024, Brunswick Magic's registration fee is $300.

  • Basketball Victoria's license is $29 for a year (two seasons).

  • A club jersey costs $70 new and shorts cost $30.

I have a group of friends wanting to play, can we form a team?

If there are seven or eight of you, and you have someone able to coach, we may be able to help you create a team for you subject to training court availability.
