The following is a statement from Basketball Victoria regarding schools programs from the effect of COVID-19
At this stage the only event on the Basketball Victoria school events calendar that has been withdrawn is the 3×3 tournament which would have commenced on April 21st.
No other school related events have been cancelled or postponed, however, as this is a rapidly evolving situation we are unable to guarantee that all these events will still occur or occur as scheduled.
Basketball Victoria will continue to monitor the COVID-19 situation and take advice from the State Government and their departments. We will provide you with updates on how our schools programs may be affected as they come to hand.
Please also keep in mind that we must work with other stakeholders to deliver school programs. Each stakeholder may need to act on their own advice in regards to hosting or competing in school related activities which could also affect the outcome of delivering school programs.
We understand that basketball is a large part of many people’s lives, however our current priority is to make decisions that ensure the health and wellbeing of everyone involved in our school programs.
