How do I get a playing number?

Once the player has registered and received confirmation that they have been placed in a team, the player will need to be issued with an SABC player number.

SABC Domestic player numbers are issued by contacting the admin at admin@southadelaidebasketball.com.au


NOTE: Player numbers DO NOT transfer between Domestic & District. If you are a Domestic player going into the District competition you must obtain a District player number. Occasionally, we may be able to issue you with the same number, however it is not guaranteed.


NOTE: If you intend on purchasing a second-hand uniform you must first check with the above listed to determine whether or not the player number is available. If it is available, your number will be registered on our system. If you obtain a second hand top and do not register the number, you will be expected to change numbers (buy a new top) in the event of a clash with an existing player or any future player.
