Do you pay admission fee to watch YLM and YLW?

I was quite surprised to see a club charge $6 an adult. Is that the norm?

Yep $6ish for any Big V game that I've been to. Senior or Youth League. $3 for VJBL so not sure why you're surprised when it's a step up on that with announcer, scorers etc all added things compared to a Friday night

And people wonder why no one goes to watch games. Ridiculously overpriced for what it is!

Yeah i guess the fairies pay the score bench and people working on the night, though i would think $5 would be a the limit for a champ level game, and $2 or $3 for anything lower.

that's why youth league should not have all the bells and whistles, then it could be a gold coin donation entry

Anon^ the bells and whistles as you refer to them are what sets Big V appart from other leagues, and YL is part of Big V. The additional cost to Associations is not generally in playing our National Anthem or introducing players or video taping games. It is the additional cost of Big V officials, the score bench etc...

Generally I would presume most Associations are similar, having the support of many volunteers that help out and they are very much appreciated.

We tend to complain about paying to watch basketball, fair enough too when a family has to pay for each individual and they are not catared for with family discounted fees. This is where we can improve I feel, but the cost for one or two to watch Big V isn't too steep, if it remains under $10.00 for a few more years that is...

6 bucks is the norm in my experience over a number of years, Corio Bay charged 10 (may have come down) as did Melbourne I think (happy to stand corrected) when the games were at MSAC.

Some associations can get volunteers but may pay a score/stats bench of 6, 1 on the door, game day cordinator, court announcer, video operator, so up to 9 or 10 being paid say $20 each, $200 straight up cost excl court hire. With VJBL you get no scorers/stats, video, announcer etc so the cost is much less.

Reality is, you get say a YL and seniors game on the one night as a double header, it's a pretty good standard so for around $15 a family it's a pretty cheap night out for what you get.

Some clubs do it better than others, but the good ones make it a great night out.

Well i know our association always has great score table people who deserve to be paid, can't control the referees so no point complaining about it or even worrying about them.

I have no idea why people would excpect to pay less for youth when its the exact same stuff as senior leagues.
Truth be told VYC is a better standard than D2 & most of D1 so why wouldn't you be paying normal price to watch good basketball

I posted 911. To 'Greedy at the extreme and in breach of ncaa rules.'

How is a Big V YLW or YLM game breaching USA NCAA college game rules? I reckon it's a safe bet that the NCAA don't mention Big V in their rules but you seem to be an expert so perhaps you could enlighten us.

If you are referring to players wanting to go to college who have played Big V, perhaps you should actually get a copy of the rules and read them, rather than just making this rubbish up. If you were correct (which you aren't), how do they justify paying entry fees to VJBL games and how does that breach NCAA rules (save you some time - it doesn't).

Don't make stuff up.

$10 for adults for entry into a Big V SCM and YL double header at Corio Bay, less for kids ($5) and free if your a rep player wearing a part of your uniform.

youth league double headers (mens and womens) is usually about $5 for both.

Dont quote i may be wrong, i get free entry anyway

Noticed Knox of advertising VYC double header - $2.50 entry.

If any needs cash it's Knox... But they seem to be going against the grain! I think all other clubs should take note, this will attract big crowds and ensure high engagement with Juniors. A winning formula in my opinion. If anyone knows how many people they had tonight please share...

Melhoops. It will be interesting to see whether that pricing does draw "big crowds". Plenty of clubs promote all sorts of deals that equate to lower ticket prices, it does not build good crowds. It might in Knox's case, but perhaps also because their fans have nothing else to watch this season.

Knox had 2 men and a dog. Dog got in for free cause he's knox's best friend.

HO - agree, there's more to it like engaging with Juniors, social media, winning, etc. But Knox do these things better than most so it should work. They need to keep there crowds strong if they plan a return to SEABL next year.
