ANNOUNCEMENT – Return to Play Conditions for Basketball in Perth and Peel Regions
After making the difficult decision to cancel Week 3 of the BWA Country Championships, Basketball WA consulted with our Associations regarding the return to play guidelines for clubs in the Perth and Peel Regions.
Basketball WA, with the support of Associations has agreed to suspend all INDOOR competition for ALL age groups the week of 6 – 14 February in line with when the next stage of restrictions is due to end. We will work with Government and our Associations to understand future restrictions and, if required post this date, whether playing basketball indoors with a mask is something that can be done reasonably and safely.
These guidelines are developed with the primary intention of ensuring good hygiene and restricting the number of people within stadiums at any one time to reduce the chances of person-to-person transmission of COVID-19.
Training is permitted under the following guidelines:
Our community’s safety and health is a priority, so we will continue to follow the latest guidelines and requirements.
Pending no further community cases, it is our hope that basketball in WA will resume to normal conditions from 12:01 Sunday 14th February. We will continue to update our stakeholders as the situation progresses.
