Here at Eastern Bulls our main aim is to develop the skills of each and every one of our basketball players. Winning or losing games is never at the expense of any individual’s self-esteem or development.
This is the latest information about the lifting of restrictions from Basketball Victoria emailed to Mark at MEBA on 25th May 2020.
Please see below the following updates regarding announcements made recently by the Victorian Government. While the announcements were significant yesterday, the current information is that we are still only allowed restricted basketball activities as per the Outdoor Training Guidelines.

We are currently working through what these changes will mean for basketball with Sport and Recreation Victoria, while working through our Return to Sport Guidelines and will have further updates on these changed conditions as soon as available.
You can read the full update from the Victorian Government here.
We aim to hold an online meeting with members in the next week when we have further clarification for our return to sport and so we can discuss the impacts, timeline and strategy. Details to be provided shortly.
Basketball Victoria will continue to work with government and advocate on behalf of basketball to ensure our sport is able to return in a safe, manageable and prompt fashion. Please visit the Basketball Victoria website for further updates or information.
Chief Executive Officer
We hope this finds you well and staying safe in these very different times.
What is the status of the Winter Competition?
A reminder that currently, Basketball Victoria has suspended all basketball competitions state-wide until at least 31 May 2020. Further information is available at http://basketballvictoria.com.au/covid-19/. We are waiting on our local association MEBA to confirm when or if the season starts, and expect the next update to be mid-May. When we know more, we will let you know.
What about the fees I have paid for Winter Season?
We are also conscious that you have paid fees for the season and maybe wondering what will happen to these. If there is to be no Winter season, our intent is to roll these over into the Summer season and refund those who are not participating. Optimistically, we hope that we can get a partial season in place, assuming that eventuates, our plan is to contribute to the payment of team sheet fees for each team via the team manager.
If you are in financial difficulty given current circumstances, please contact the committee via this email address and we will process your refund as soon as possible. We are not able to refund the Basketball Victoria yearly fee of $25 per player. Families have to follow this up with Basketball Victoria. We will forward the email address of the appropriate person at BV as part of our refunding process.
Staying up to date
All notices will be posted on the Eastern Bulls website and our Facebook page. If you are not friends with Eastern Bulls on Facebook please do so or keep a close eye on the Bulls website.
Has been postponed until further notice.
Stay safe and we hope to see you around the courts in the not too distant future.
The Eastern Bulls Committee.
