Participants are currently recommended to limit the number of spectators they bring to a game
Entering and exiting our stadiums:
Patrons / participants remain outdoors or in foyer areas outside of the playing courts of our venues until the preceding game has completed and all have left the court area. Once a game has been completed, ideally participants leave the venue as soon as possible to ensure the absolute minimum number of people are within the venue at any one time.
Positive Cases / Close Contacts
While Victoria’s isolation rules have changed, many of the COVID-19 risks still remain.
Should a participant, staff member, volunteer, yourself or anyone in relevant families develop any symptoms, we strongly encourage individuals to get tested and follow Victorian Government health directives.
If someone tests positive after attending a basketball activity, the following is recommended:
The individual notifies the association.
The association notifies the team / club involved about the positive result – recommends they get tested.
The association notifies the opposition team and referees. This group are known as ‘social’ contacts.
Any social contact experiencing symptoms should use a Rapid Antigen Test. Understandably these are difficult to obtain at the moment, this website can help in locating purchase options.
If the test is negative, there is no need to isolate, but they should monitor for symptoms and use a Rapid Antigen Test daily for 5 days.
Do I need to wear a mask? All patrons over the age of 8 who are not actively engaged in an exertive role on court – whether as a player, coach or official, are required to wear a mask at all times indoors (unless they possess a valid medical exemption). We encourage the wearing of N95 or KP94 masks if you are able to obtain them.
Do I need to check in?
Yes. QR codes will be in place at the entrance to all stadiums. All patrons must scan the code provided and check-in prior to entering the courts.
Vaccinations / Boosters
We continue to encourage vaccinations for everyone eligible in the community, including those eligible for a third dose – which has had the interval time between doses reduced to 3 months yesterday by the Victorian Government. For more information and booking options for vaccines please visit here.
