Basketball Is Back

Basketball is Back 2020

 

Dear Members, Players and Parents,

GOOD NEWS! Bankstown Basketball Stadium is Reopening! We have been given confirmation from council that we can reopen the facility from this Thursday, 25th June 2020. However, there are still restrictions in place and limitations to the times of our operations and how we can operate to ensure that we comply with COVID safe operations.

The stadium will provide 1.5hr booking timeslots for patrons to utilise the courts, however after 1.5hrs the stadium will need to be vacated completely for 30mins to enable staff to sanitise and clean the stadium in preparation for the next group of bookings. There will also be a sign in sheet for all guests to provide full name and contact number before access will be granted. The entrance and exits will be separated to assist in limiting contact of people entering and exiting the facility. The doors to the facility will be locked while each time period is in session so we ask you to respect social distancing outside the front door while you wait for the next time session to commence.

For the next two weeks the following operations will incur:

Weekdays Operations – 9am-1:30pm – Casual Shooting

Casual Shooting                $5 per session per person (capped at 80 total per session)

Please bring your own water bottle and equipment as the canteen will not be in operation nor can we provide basketballs. The showers/ change rooms will be closed, only the toilets at the end of court 1 will be accessible. There will be social distancing markers up on the benches and please sanitise your hands before you enter the stadium. We would appreciate everyone’s patience surrounding our new operation procedures and we pre-empt that as the restrictions are relaxed further that we can get back to normal operating systems and introduction of the canteen.

In relation to the Junior/ Senior Competitions and Representative team training the respective department Managers would have been in touch with players, team managers, Clubs, and local comp team captains in relation to the start date to your respective programs. If you are unsure please contact the stadium staff member in charge of your program.

In regards to registrations the portal will be opened in the coming days if you need to renew your registration before your competition recommences. There has been a discount provided in light of the suspension period of COVID and an impending email is forth coming on renew and team links information.

If you require any information the staff are now contactable by phone as we are back to normal working hours. We look forward to seeing you all again really soon and bringing some life back into the stadium.

Take care and stay safe,

Christian Gobolos

General Manager
