CLEARANCE / PERMIT / EXEMPTION FORMS
Club Player Clearance Form: Players who are moving from one DBA-affiliated club to another, are required to fill out this form prior to taking the court with a new club. (Example: I played with Ansett for the 2020 Championship season and now wish to play for Lightning for the 2021 Challenge Season.)
Interstate Player Clearance Form: Players who are moving inter-state will require a clearance from their Darwin Club, Association, and State body before they begin playing in a different league in a different state.
Permit Form: Players requesting a special clearance to play for another club/team in a grade that your original home club does not participate in. This is a temporary transfer for that particular season and is applicable ONLY for the grade for which the clearance is requested.
Special Circumstances Approval Form: Players who believe that they can be exempt from a certain by-law of the DBA competition, due to special circumstances, can fill out this form. (Example: My child is turning 10 in December, and it is the first time they are playing basketball – Can we play U10s this year?) Please note: Each circumstance is viewed independently and multiple factors are taken into consideration before approval is given.
Uniform Exemption Form: Players who do not have a proper uniform to participate in the competition, must fill out a uniform exemption form. (The exemption must be kept on them at all times until the proper uniform is received)
