Rep Information

2020 Inter-Association Rep Season

Fees

MBA Board and staff have discussed rep fees for 2020. The fee for this year will remain the same as in 2019. The MBA has always run the senior rep programme at a loss, subsiding the true cost of participation for our core players. We shall continue this in 2020; however, with the costs incurred this year and the reduction in player numbers, coupled with the length of the season remaining the same as in previous years (when including Feb-Mar), mean that the MBA will be subsidising the programme even more during 2020, despite the fees remaining the same.

Fees for 2020:

  • $195(+gst) for 1 team
  • $245(+gst) for 2+ teams
  • $50(+gst) for a junior playing in a senior team

Fees will be invoiced during July and payable during August. As always, we are open to payment plans to suit an individuals’ circumstances, so please do not hesitate to contact us.

As communicated previously, the amount invoiced to senior reps earlier this year for ‘pre-COVID-19 rep fees’ will be deducted from the payable fee for 2020. You will not pay this twice. Please feel free to contact me if you have any questions.
