RE: Coronavirus Update (COVID-19)


Club members, Players, Coaches, Referees and Parents



Hi all, 


Basketball Victoria has made the decision to suspend Basketball Victoria related programs, events and leagues from now March 13th until further notice.


In light of this WCBA have also made the decision to cancel ALL Domestic Games both Junior and Senior as from now until further notice. So there is no basketball to be played on Saturday, Sunday night, through to and includingThursday night. 


All Friday night VJBL games, Big V Games, Championship Training, Coach's meetings have also been cancelled until further notice.  


As this is a rapidly evolving situation, we would like to thank everyone for their understanding and patience as we work through this difficult period. This is a decision we don’t take lightly and want to reassure the basketball Community that we will continue to work with the Victorian Government and other health authorities to ensure the health and wellbeing of our players, coaches, referees and staff are maintained.


Further updates will be provided in the coming days and weeks.


Thanks for your support.




David Hughes
