AGM reminder and latest season update - 3 September 2021

 

Hello to all Dodgers players, families and coaches!

Please find a quick update from us regarding our forthcoming AGM (via Zoom this Sunday night) and a season update from Basketball ACT based on the latest extension of the lockdown in the ACT.

 

DODGERS 2021 ANNUAL GENERAL MEETING

We warmly invite and encourage all Dodgers families and players to attend our AGM, which is being held via Zoom this Sunday night (5 September) at 8pm. Attend our AGM from the comfort of your own home - whether you are keen to get involved and volunteer, or just want to come along to the Zoom meeting to listen in, you are very welcome to attend! 

Please email Pat at wcwdcomms@gmail.com to receive the login details.

 

SEASON RECOMMENCEMENT UPDATE

Basketball ACT (BACT) has provided an update on their plans for recommencement of the season - a full copy of the statement can be found here. The key details and timelines (as they stand currently) are summarised below, but of course we need to be mindful that we are in a fluid situation and things may change again.

 

Winter season

 

  • Juniors - Despite the lockdown extension, the completion of the Junior Winter Competition still remains a priority for BACT. If they are unable to finalise competition by 26 November 2021 the season will deemed complete.

 

  • Senior Premier League - In line with Junior Competitions, if BACT are unable to complete the competition by 26 November 2021 the season will deemed complete. 
 
  • Senior Social Winter Competition - will be rescheduled with the remaining competition rounds to be played. If lockdown is extended post 17 September, BACT's next decision-making point in relation to the season needing to change formats or dates will be Friday 9 October 2021.

 

All summer competitions 

As basketball returns from current lockdown restrictions, BACT will have a greater understanding on the changes needing to be made to the Basketball ACT Summer Competitions to accommodate the finalisation of the Winter competitions. If the Winter competitions are unable to recommence on or before the weekend of 9-10 October, a revised summer format will be implemented with revised formats and recommencement dates to be considered.

The Dodgers will monitor developments closely and keep you informed.

 

Training

Please note that in line with current ACT Government lockdown requirements, we are unable to undertake any Dodgers training at this time...but please keep working on those backyard and verandah-based drills!

 

Summer season registrations

Please note that when BACT is in a position to provide details of Summer competitions (let's keep our fingers crossed!), there will probably be a very short window for registrations to play with the Dodgers for summer, so please keep a watch for communications from us...and help us by responding within identified timelines if you want to play summer ball (as we will have difficulty finding places for late registrants!)

 

Best wishes and please stay safe.

 

Ash Cross

Dodgers President
