AFFILIATION AND FEES

Background

  • The affiliation structure and the benefits to clubs are described here.
  • Affiliated clubs pay affiliation fees to the State body (NSWBA) and capitation fees to the National body (ABF).
  • Fees are payable by clubs in respect of their Home Club Members (if a player is a member of multiple clubs, they must nominate one as their “home club”).
  • Once a club has chosen to affiliate there is a 100% rule; i.e. fees are payable to the State and National bodies in respect of ALL Home Club Members.

Fees are administered differently at State and National levels:

NSWBA State Affiliation Fees

  • NSWBA affiliation is payable in respect of a calendar year.
  • It is calculated based on the number of Home Club Members at 31st of October each year and is invoiced in November to cover the subsequent calendar year.
  • No further charges are made for new members; conversely no reductions are given for departing members.

The NSWBA affiliation rate (incl. GST) for 2017 will be:

  • $9 per Home Club Member at 31 October 2016, if paid within one month of invoice;
  • $10 per Home Club Member at 31 October 2016, if paid later than one month of invoice.
  • There is a minimum annual fee of $90/$100 – i.e. based on at least 10 home members.

ABF National Capitation Fees

  • ABF capitation is payable in respect of a year commencing 1 April and ending 31 March.
  • It is calculated based on the number of Home Club Members at 31 March each year and is invoiced in April to cover the year to the subsequent 31 March.
  • Further charges are made quarterly as clubs register new members or reactivate old ones.

The ABF capitation rate (incl. GST) for 2017 will be:
