We want all our players to have a great playing experience, and a key factor of this is team bonding. When players are continually missing games and training sessions, it impacts the whole team dynamic, which is not only evident in the gameplay but also the players attitudes toward each other.
Players who are continually missing training sessions and games may not receive as much game time as players who are proving their commitment to the team by attending training and games.
All game fixtures are issued by Gold Coast Basketball.
The Central Stars have no input to the location, court, time, or day that the games will take place.
The Central Stars will receive the fixtures for the season in late September. Fixture details will be posted to the TeamApp as soon as practicable.

The scoring system supplied is an easy-to-use system and the instruction manual can be found on the TeamApp. Hands on training will also be supplied on request.
Please contact your team manager to organise a training session or if you need to adjust the score bench schedule.
Alternatively, for a $10.00 donation to the club, we will organise a replacement to stand in during your allocated scoring week.
