CADBA – Chelsea & District Basketball Association
Play at CADBA – Chelsea & District Basketball
Chelsea & Districts Basketball (CADBA) was formed in the late 1970s upon the completion of construction on the two-court basketball stadium located in Bonbeach, affectionately dubbed “The Nest”. The club has since grown to over 4,000 registered members with organised training and games happening seven days per week. Chelsea Basketball Stadium is used by more than 200 domestic teams and over 28 elite representative teams.
Seasons for junior domestic at CADBA run bi-annually, the Winter Season being terms 2 & 3 of school, and the Summer Season starting term 4 and continuing through term 1 of the following year. Age group changes are made each Winter ahead of the season. Registrations for each season open February for Winter and July for Summer. They remain open for 6 weeks, closing 4 weeks prior to commencement of new season allowing us time to form teams, schedule trainings, confirm coaches etc prior to school holidays. We offer Afterpay and humm as payment options to help with registration payments. The CADBA registration fee includes team registration, training venue hire and administration fee. It does NOT however, include your game fees or yearly Basketball Victoria fee.
