Summer 2021 – Updated Nov 3


Registered Players

It has been a long winter without the things we love. No friends, no family & no fun to be had. However the good news is we are hopefully heading in the right direction & are ready to return to Basketball. The current plan based on the Sate Governement & Health departmant roadmap has us returning to safe place around Nov 9 (please note this can change & is out of our control). With this date we are looking to return to basketball the week of November 23 for ALL age groups. Yes from under 10s to Seniors.

We have 1 month to collect registrations & to start our planning, so the first step those are wanting to play MUST register on Google Forms link by November 1. We will then look to have try outs if needed for junior teams from November 9 with teams not long after.

IMPORTANT INFORMATION ABOUT THE SEASON

Expected season to start Nov 23 (subject to State Government covid roadmap)

  • Covid Rules will apply for the start of the season with hopes of relaxing those rules as we enter various stages.
  • Game length will be reduced to two 15 min halves hope to increase by a couple of min before xmas & hope to be full length by term 1
  • Limits to the number of people allowed in stadiums including 1 spectator per player (not including coach)
  • There will be no training in term 4 due to unavailability of schools. Hope to have full training in term 1
  • There will be no presentation day as we simply don’t know if we can
  • Fees will be reduced to $40 reflect the savings in less training & presentation day
  • Term 4 plans for at least 4 games before xmas. Term 1 is a long term of 11 week, which will hopefully mean at least 15 weeks of comp (inc finals)

So if you can’t wait to get back into your basketball & see you old team mates again then please register here

Little GIANTS and Mighty GIANTS

Unfortunately we are unable to run our Little & Mighty Giants program for term 4 as we still not able to safely use the school hall. We are very keen to return fro Term 1 & perhaps a FREE clinic is safe
