PLHBA Junior Competition

Perry Lakes Hawks Basketball Association (PLHBA) Junior Competition

Woodlands Warriors Basketball Club is part of the PLHBA and play in their Junior Competition with five other clubs.  The rules for the competition can be found in the same section.  The games are played at Bendat Stadium in Perry Lakes or Lords Recreation Centre in Subiaco.  The games dates cover Friday to Sunday.  Girls typically play Friday afternoon and evening.

Eligibility for a team is the player's age at 1 July to be under the relevant group, must be less than not equal to say Under 12.  Teams are 8-10 players, requests to place players together will be considered, but our priority is to get all registered players playng for a team.  

Each team has a Manager and Coach, these are appointed by the team member's parents and family.  Woodlands Warriors provides team shirts and practice balls to each team.  Many teams practice at Woodlands Primary School, others practice in other locations as they are available (Churchlands High School, or Hale School etc).

The season normally starts mid to late March and continues through September.  The first 1-2 weeks of the season the teams play grading games, before beginning their games in the assigned pool.  Teams may be graded again during the season.

Our uniform is Warriors singlet and plain black shorts without stripes or major logos.  The club will provide the singlets, and the player provides shorts.  There is no sock requirement.  A T-shirt may not be worn under the singlet, if you are cold a non-visible type of undershirt can be worn.  PLHBA do sometimes not allow a player on the court if they are not wearing the correct uniform.

Mouthguards are designed to protect the teeth and the jawbone as well. Basketball is a contact sport, and accidental injuries are sometimes part of the game.
