COVID 19 Return to Sport Guidelines & Information

Basketball WA is pleased to confirm that community basketball competition and full-contact training can resume under our STAGE 3 (Orange – 24) guidelines and protocols from Saturday 6 June 2020 in Western Australia.

An updated version of the WA Basketball Return to Sport Guidelines and Return to Play Road Map can be found on our website. There is also a clear and concise understanding of the guidelines and protocols for this Stage. All of our documents are updated and can be found here on our website

Basketball WA has been working closely with the WA Government and our Associations in designing our guidelines to support the return of community basketball in a safe and practical manner. The Stage 3 guidelines are designed around a four court space having no more than 24 participants on each court and remaining within the government guideline of less than 100 people. If spectators were present this would not be possible. We understand this may be difficult for some and that it may mean that in this stage it is not suitable for very young children to start competing. We are working with government and hope that when phase four is announced it will begin to allow spectators in some capacity.
