After the current season finishes. The Committee has to find Coaches and Team Managers for each team and walk them through all steps in order for us to comply with our Child Safety Standards – this can take a while! So we ask you to be patient while our volunteers do our best in putting together teams for your players as quickly as we can 🙂

Dunkers fields teams for U8 – U18 aged players. Please note that 90% + of our players attend Donvale Christian College.

  • We highly recommend that players wait until grade 1 before enrolling in the competitive Saturday programs as for the majority of players, their ability to grasp the basics of basketball isn’t present in most kids aged 5 and 6.
  • We do offer a short skills based junior program called Future Dunkers that runs each term 1 and 3 that caters for Preps to Grade 2. Click HERE link below for more information.
  • Dunkers prefers all new players in this age group to have completed at least 1 Future Dunkers program or equivalent (Hoops, The Rings and other similar holiday basketball programs) before starting with Donvale Dunkers. Click HERE for more information.

Winter Season cutoffs are “under the age of the prescribed competition (8,10,12,14,16,18 and 23) on the 31st December in the year prior to which the competition commences”.

For example…

If you’re currently playing U10, and your birthday was before December 31st last year and you turned 10+, you will be moving up to U12. If your birthday falls after December 31st last year you’ll stay in U10.

Summer Season cutoffs are “under the age of the prescribed competition (8,10,12,14,16,18 and 23) on the 30th June in the same year the competition commences”.
