In 2020, all players (excluding u21’s) will need to purchase a NEW updated latest style Melbourne UNIFORM.
In 2019 the VJBL clubs were given 3 years to convert to the new FIBA style / approved uniform layout.
In 2019 we fitted out the u12’s with these new uniforms. They all look smart and are very light.
In 2021, we will need to change over everybody (excluding the u21’s) to this new style uniform.
Many players have grown, so new uniforms for everybody will be needed.
Note: we can get away with one more year of the old-style uniforms with the u21’s
Players must get their uniform orders in at Try Outs
We will need to size up everybody. A timetable will be published for when you should come in.
Because of the potential to have COVID present, we will aim to be sparing in allowing players to try on sample uniforms.
New players to the club, you may have to try on sample uniforms to get the right size.
The information below applies only to Melb players who already have a current Melb uniform
You can help us work out what size uniform you require
On your current uniform, look for the size tags. What are the characters displayed on the size tags?
We are looking for the characters on your singlet and also your shorts
Child Small Medium Large Adult eXtra Small Medium Large Adult eXtra Large x 2 x 3
At the fitting of uniforms, players should have been temperature tested and have not yet Tried Out.
Please wear a fresh clean T shirt to the fitting
New players will have to be sized up with a tape measure or from our sample sets
– before you get there, measure the circumference around the chest 5cm below the arm pits, in cm
– At the fitting, the shorts can then be calculated from the size of the singlet.
– If that fails, we will order up & hold at MSAC spare stocks of shorts, in case there is a sizing problem with the shorts.
$130 for the uniform set, Polo and a T shirt are to be delivered in January, 5 weeks to the team managers
NO CASH payments can be made – credit card or direct deposit only to be paid before or on the night of you order.
If there is no payment made then there will be no order placed.
MORE Uniforms information and prices are detailed below
Get yourself measured up at Try Outs and order your uniform, we will organise your preferred playing number.
Until players know what teams they are in there is no point coming into the basketball office at MSAC to pick up a loan uniform.
The Melbourne Boys basketball office & uniforms store is at the entrance of the basketball end at MSAC.
Players new to the club, when starting to play, will require a loan uniform to play in.
You should get your loan uniform from the basketball office only when you are selected into a team. NOT before.
It is important to order up your official uniform at Try Outs & select your preferred numbers listed while you are there.
Payment for uniforms and any merchandise you will require should be done when ordering your uniforms.
Handing out of loan uniforms before your games will be giving priority to, and in the order of the No 1, 2, 3, 4, …. teams.
The No 1 2 3 4 teams are the teams that will need to be in correct uniform before the lower ranked teams.
On on Friday nights at MSAC, when the basketball office / uniform store is open,
we will attempt to fit out all players who will need loan uniforms to play in.
Please be early because there is always a rush to get a loan uniform.
The loan uniform will be something that is temporary and must be returned when your official uniform arrives.
ALL uniforms are stored in the basketball office at MSAC.
An assistant will be at MSAC only on Friday nights from 5pm -11pm.
The club will require a $50 cash deposit for the loan uniform that you borrow.
When you return your loan uniform, in good condition, you will get your $50 deposit back.
Use of the loan uniform means that you must ONLY wear it to games and NOT training sessions.
If you want a training top & shorts, we also sell training tops and shorts at MSAC ($60).
The official uniforms will be available in approximately six weeks time after placing your order. Be early
The official uniforms will be delivered mid January, just before the Australia Day weekend tournament.

The VJBL will be tolerant of “near enough” uniforms (Black shorts & training singlets) up until the New Year or when the main season starts
Players without proper uniforms in the main season will not be allowed to play in the VJBL competition.
Please plan ahead and get your uniform ordered as soon as possible.
Sizing up for uniforms can be tried out at Try Outs or only on Friday nights. We are not at MSAC during the week.
