England Basketball registrations are now open. All clubs, players, coaches, referees and table officials are reminded that you need to be registered with EB before you can participate in any SABA fixture. Without doing so, you are not insured.
Remember to register in every capacity that you fulfil: so for example, if you are a player, referee and coach register tick each of those boxes on the registration form. In this situation, if you only register as a player and coach you will not be able to referee any SABA fixture - and would be strongly advised not to referee in any capacity at all.
