On advice from the Chief Medical Officer, our Premier has called an end to the 5-day lock down as of midnight tonight. Basketball Victoria was pleased to announce that basketball can recommence across the state from Wednesday 17 February at 11.59pm at a COVID-Safe level according to the Return to Sport Guidelines (Version 10 / 17 February).
KBA JUNIOR DOMESTIC COMPETITION – this weekend (round 3)
The KBA have announced a return to our Junior Domestic Competition this weekend (20/21 February 2021). All round 3 games postponed from last weekend (13/14 February 2021) will be played this week. The fixtures have been updated to reflect this change. There will be further changes to the Junior Domestic Competition from round 4 but we will provide information about this in another communication.
We have contacted our three training venues to ascertain if training can recommence. At the time of this communication, we have only had a definitive response from St Christopher’s Primary School. The other schools are waiting for a directive from the Education Department.

COVID SAFETY PLAN & BSO
We will recommence training under the club’s COVID Safety Plan with BSO’s. In addition, there is now a requirement for masks to be worn.
Masks are not required while on court during games for players and referees participating in an exertive role, however, must be worn while not playing and on entry and exit of stadium. Coaches (including during games) and all other patrons over 12 years of age – must always wear a mask while indoors unless medically exempt.
We thank everyone for their patience and understanding during the 5-day circuit breaker. We are all excited to have our teams back playing this weekend!
