Orange-50 Level Return Guidelines
The Orange-50 Level return guidelines places limitations around number of players, spectators, arrival and departure times and other areas, to ensure that the risk of COVID-19 infection is minimised during the return phase.
Under the Orange-50 Level guidelines, we must allow for adequate time sanitise courts and basketballs at the completion of each game. As a result, you will see changes to our regular competition start times, which will include an extended break between time slots.
PlayHQ Registration Platform
We have now migrated to the PlayHQ system – Basketball Victoria’s new membership and competitions platform. All players, coaches and teams must register as a member on the PlayHQ system prior to joining a team. Participants will only need to pay once when they register per 365-day period, irrespective of how many teams or associations they play in.
You must register for a PlayHQ account prior to stepping on the court.
Senior Domestic player registrations are payable when you enter a registered team (you will receive a code to register). Registration costs can be found here: https://www.playhq.com/register/c35d8e
Whilst we are thrilled about our impending return to basketball, we must stress that the battle against COVID-19 is not over. All social distancing and hygiene practices must continue to be followed within our venues to ensure our stadiums and competitions can not only re-open, but remain open.
