COVID-19 Updates

COVID19 Stadium Closed

COVID-19 Update Statement: 26th May, 2020
 

Bankstown Basketball Association Response


Dear Members, Players and Parents


As we are starting to see an easing of government restrictions around social gathering and outdoor recreational activities, we thank you for your patience and understanding over this time.

Currently the stadium is still closed due to both State and local council regulations. As much as we would love to open the stadium and initiate sporting activities whilst adhering to the social distancing rules we must still respect the fact that we are in stage 1 of COVID-19 restrictions and no activity can take place.

I am in contact with Canterbury/Bankstown Council about implementing an operating procedure that will require us to have a Biosafety Officer, sign in registry and entry/ exit strategies to ensure that social distancing rules can be engaged. While I cannot give specific dates, I feel that once stage 2 restrictions are implemented allowing gyms, theatres and community sports clubs to open, the stadium will then be in position to reopen to a limited capacity. Please view our website and Facebook pages for updated information on stadium access.

In regards to our Skills & Development, Aussie Hoops classes, Senior and Junior Local Competitions commencement dates unfortunately these are still to be confirmed. However, with the progress NSW has made in reducing infection rates will mean we have a stronger chance of getting back to playing in a shorter time period. Will, Christine and Sharon will keep members, clubs and teams informed throughout this period.

In regards to junior and senior reps for 2020 Sharon and Debbie will contact all teams, coaches and players in regards to information forwarded from Basketball NSW.

Our staff are only working limited days so if you would like to contact them please use email as your means of communication. Please be patient as they will respond to you once they are available.

Take care, stay safe and we’ll be in touch soon
