SEABL transport questions - who pays?

With the seabl, obviously the teams fly to games ? Ie- dandenong going to hobart? Do the players have to pay or do the clubs cover it and therefore do the clubs need to have a certain amount of capital (at the start of the season) to guarantee they can attend all games

I can tell you that the players don't pay. As for if the money is coming from the league or the teams i don't know...

All covered under the league fees.Club pays the league a fee every season including accomodation and airfares.Players are paid from $5k to $25k for a season in general.

Back in my day the players certainly didnt pay 4 flights but we didnt get paid either. Sometimes we got petrol money or a food allowance. Cashed up clubs like Bendigo pay all players something!

Not every player on a SEABL roster gets paid.Far from it. Mant players that want to play at the best level will do it for nothing. However there is every chance that if they are really good at it, they might get some money.

Agree the majority of players would not get even close to $5000 a season. Imports and NBL rostered players get paid decent, an average player might get a little bit and most benchies nothing.

Top 7 of most rosters would be earning at a minimum 3-5k.Bottom 2 or 3 wouldn't be getting much.Also very different for city clubs against country clubs.

It also depends on the team. The bigger associations can give players more money. For example Albury barely pay any of their players except for their imports (and a couple of Aussie recruits this season)

Country teams may organise a job for a player to get him to come and play.The Albury Wodonga Bandits have had an outstanding season and full credit to there coach and committee.

Albury have actually recruited well this season and spent some money. Normally it is just the imports (and probably Nick Payne) who got paid. They have a couple of good recruits (Opacic and someone else who I forget who would be paid this season). They help players get a job, but to play for the Bandits you have to be either studying or working (except imports I think)

Not every player in a SEABL side gets paid.
The players often get a small amount of moeny as well to lessen the impact of meals etc as wellwhen away. Some meals are provided, and in some cases not all meals are provided.

Senior players get paid. Junior players often can't get paid so that they can keep their amateur status. Some bench players don't get paid until they become an intregal part of the team. Regarding travel, food, accomodation expenses: the players do not pay. Even uniforms are supplied.
