The Victorian Government has made the following changes impacting basketball and the return to community sport regarding coronavirus (COVID-19).From 11:59pm on 31 May the following changes will come into effect:
- Non-contact outdoor sporting activities (e.g. basketball training sessions) will increase to 20 people plus the instructor (previously 10 people plus the instructor) as per the previously distributed Outdoor Training Guidelines
From 11:59pm on 21 June – and in line with the most up-to-date advice of the Chief Health Officer – the following changes will be made:
- Indoor sports centres and physical recreation venues, including gyms, to open with up to 20 people per single undivided indoor space and up to 10 people per group/activity at any one time.
This will likely mean that Dandenong Stadium will open for domestic club, represenatative and development program training sessions, this is yet to be confirmed however.
Basketball Victoria are currently working through what these changes will mean for basketball with Sport and Recreation Victoria, while working through their Return to Sport Guidelines and will have further updates on these changed conditions as soon as available.
