As the situation with COVID-19 evolves we want to assure our local community, that we are following direct advice from the Federal & State Governments, NSW Health Authorities and Basketball Australia.
As of today Thursday 12th of March, we confirm all games scheduled for this coming weekend will proceed as planned. We recommend for family or guardians accompanying children to junior competitions be the only people attending the games across the states to minimize any potential risk of exposure.
We also recommend each host of games follow the guidelines provided be government below and the main consideration is for people who are unwell not to attend games and to self-exclude.
