Basketball is Back

BASKETBALL IS BACK!!!

To help keep our community safe, we highly recommend installing the Government’s COVIDSafe app before coming to the stadium.

We are as anxious as you to get competition up and running as soon as possible.

We can officially start competitions on 1 July, so have a guess when our games will start??

1 July, of course! 

We will finish the remaining 2 rounds of our 2019/20 Senior Hoops competition, then the semi-finals and grand-finals. 

Our Senior Tri-Season competition will commence immediately following the grand-finals and go through to November/December.

We still do not know when our external venues, such as Willoughby Leisure Centre, Marie Bashir and schools, will be open and available for us to run competitions.

To give time for these venues to re-open, we are cancelling the balance of Junior Competition One. Competition Two will commence immediately after the school holidays.

Our awesome Competition Manager, Karen North, is the process of emailing all Junior and Senior team contacts to check that the team is still wishing to continue to play.

As the outside venues have the biggest impact on our Miniball competitions, we do not yet have a start date. Miniball team contacts will be hearing from Karen once we have a better idea when we can re-start.

BNSW PLAYER REGISTRATIONS

A large number of registrations have expired during the closedown. We have been working with Basketball NSW to work out how to deal with the closedown period.

Last week, Basketball NSW finally informed us that all existing registration dates will remain, however when you renew your registration, your renewal fee will be discounted to take into account the closedown.

You will need to be registered before taking the court, so please make sure you do this before you come to the stadium, as time is limited between entering the stadium and the game starting.

DEVELOPMENT PROGRAMS 

Our Development programs re-commenced on Monday 16 June. Our holiday camps are now open for bookings.

So now you know when games start, it is time to start getting your body prepared! After so long off the court, it is important you start some fitness regime to ensure you don’t increase your risk of injury.

FEELING A LITTLE UNWELL?  DO NOT COME TO THE STADIUM

If you are feeling unwell or have any symptoms, please do not come to the stadium. Protect your fellow basketballers and take a break. If you do come to the stadium, you may not be allowed to come in. 

Please keep an eye out for our updates. The whole situation is still very fluid and changes will almost certainly be required before we actually get playing again!

Comment Guidelines: The SportsTG Network is made up of players, families and passionate sports followers like you who have a strong opinion about sport. That's great - we want you to have your say and share your thoughts with the world. However, we have a few rules that you must follow to keep it fun for all. Please don't be rude, abusive, swear or vilify others. Apart from some pretty serious sport sanctions, we also can ban you and report you if things get out of hand. So play fair and have fun, and thanks for your contribution.
