CEO of Basketball Australia, Nick Honey, has issued this statement this afternoon
"Basketball Victoria has made the decision to suspend Basketball Victoria related programs, events and leagues from now, March 13, until further notice. This includes ALL VJBL games, Big V games and the Country Championships being held in Ballarat this weekend.
Regarding domestic basketball and any skill development programs, we also recommend the suspension of these activities until further notice.
As this is a rapidly evolving situation, we would like to thank everyone for their understanding and patience as we work through this difficult period. This is a decision we don’t take lightly and want to reassure the basketball community that we will continue to work with the Victorian Government and other health authorities to ensure the health and wellbeing of our players, coaches, referees and staff are maintained.
Further updates will be provided in the coming days and weeks."
Training sessions on Saturday 14th of March at Melbourne Uni Sport have been cancelled.
We will keep members updated on any changes via email and Social Media Channels.
