Training

Most teams will remain in the same training slot. Your team manager will advise you of your training slot, once these have been finalised. 

Drop-off and Pick-up

*When dropping off players at training, parents must ensure that the coach is at the venue.  Occasionally training needs to be cancelled unexpectedly and if we have been unable to notify you, your child could be left stranded without supervision. We encourage parents to remain at training where possible and offer support to the coach if required. 

*Parents, please ensure that you are punctual when collecting players.  It is not fair to expect the coach to wait with your child unnecessarily.

*Coaches must stay until all players have been collected from training before leaving the venue.

VENUES

Here is a list of possible venues used for games and/ or training. 

Sandringham Stadium  Tulip St, Cheltenham (off Reserve Rd)

Cheltenham Secondary College Bernard St, Cheltenham

Mentone Girls Secondary College Balcombe Rd, Mentone

Parkdale Secondary College Warren Rd, Mordialloc

Beaumaris Secondary College Reserve Rd, Beaumaris

Parktone Primary School Robert St, Parkdale

*Players are required to take a ball to all training venues with the exception of Parkdale Secondary.

If you are new to scoring, please ask an experienced parent to sit with you while you score.

All parents are expected to share the scoring responsibility. Your team manager will provide a roster for scoring. If you are unable to score on your allocated date, please find a replacement scorer.

Seasons Pass

As a thank you from the club Team managers will be reimbursed for their season pass. Please forward a copy of your receipt along with your team name to treasurermustangs@gmail.com

 

Parents can order a season stadium pass via TEAM APP to allow entry into the stadium each week during the season (not including finals). This is great value compared to paying entry each week at the venue.

 

All players playing in the U20’s and above competitions will need to either purchase a stadium entry card or pay an entry fee per visit.  Any players that are registered and playing in U18’s and then also playing in a second team in the U20’s - U23’s are entitled to a complimentary stadium entry card.

Most Valuable Player and Coaches Awards

For teams aged u10 and older*, Mentone Mustangs record the most valuable 3 players for each game and these points are accumulated at the end of each season and a trophy awarded. The team manager will assign a parent each week to do the voting. (This is optional for U18 upwards)

3 points – Most Valuable player

2 points – 2nd MVP

1 point – 3rd MVP

Printable MVP voting forms

*U8 and U9 Teams - all players receive a medallion at the end of the season.

Scoring

Coaches and Team Managers

The Southern Basketball Association (SBA) requires domestic club coaches, team managers and assistant coaches to achieve accreditations in order to be compliant and permitted to coach a team in any SBA Junior Domestic Competition. Failure to comply may result in your team losing all their points for the season

 

Mustangs Coaching administrator will be in touch with next steps.
