Warriors Squad Program

Warragul Warriors Squad & CBL 2022/2023 Progam

The representative squads are about encouraging young basketball players to further develop their skills and to achieve to the best of their ability in all aspects of the game of basketball.

Junior Squad Representative Sides are made up of players from all clubs registered with WDABA.

There are approximately 100 plus players aged between 8-17 years involved in these teams, representing teams in age groups from U10’s through to U18’s.

These squad teams have been developed for all age groups to establish and foster skills development and succession planning for a wider range of juniors.


Squad representative basketball is a fantastic way for your child to further develop their basketball skills. It takes quite a commitment from both players and parents, which for a successful team should be encouraged and maintained even when you’d love nothing more than to stay home and not have another trip out the door.

Parents should show support to their child, and encourage teammates equally. Respect should be shown to the coach. Any issues which you may have regarding, team selection or games should be directed to the coach, well after the completion of training sessions or games.

Code of conduct is attached and must be read and signed by players and parents upon registration.
Parents are expected to score on rotation, so please familiarize yourself with the scoring system for both domestic and tournament games.


Squad coaches should be passionate about basketball. They are leaders, with an ability to create a vision of where they want to take their team. Developing a clear picture of their goals and expectations for their team to provide motivation for players to work hard and reach their full potential.

Coaches should be able to clearly communicate on three levels,
• Practice and training structure for players
• Expectations for players’ behaviour
• Association administrators and parents general communication

Team rules and expectations as set out at the commencement of the season are to be adhered to for the duration of the season.
