Attention all Junior and Senior Domestic Clubs and Teams
As you are aware last Friday 13th March we took advice from Basketball Victoria to cancel games scheduled for the coming weekend and possibly longer. Yesterday we received an update from BV recommending that no games are to be played or training undertaken until April 13th at the earliest.
As a result of this advice, the Altona Bay Basketball Association has taken the decision to abandon the current Junior & Senior Summer Domestic Seasons and aim to resume for the Winter Season from April 17th for Juniors and April 20th for Seniors. This means the teams that finished 1st & 2nd on the ladder will be declared the Premiers and Runners Up respectively and can if they wish collect the trophies associated with that by sending an email to Joan O’Shea at firstname.lastname@example.org to arrange a time to collect them.
This extended break will allow all players more time to get registered under the new individual player registration and for clubs to get teams confirmed and numbers in by the required date later this month.
A reminder that individual registrations do not activate until the first round of the new season is played.
We are taking the opportunity to run 2 free 1-hour coaches courses on Wednesday 15th April from 6-7 pm and 7.30-8.30pm run by Lanard Copeland. Further details about this will be forthcoming.
We encourage everyone to use the time off wisely while ensuring they keep well and follow all the relevant advice available. We will continue to monitor advice from BV and other pertinent groups and should the situation change an update will be provided in due course.
