As per our Junior Domestic Return to Play release, we are forecasting a late-July return for Senior Domestic competitions at Kilsyth Basketball, pending approval from the State’s Chief Medical Officer (CMO). 


When you return to our competitions, you will notice some changes which have been made to comply with the CMO’s directions. Basketball Victoria have created guidelines which associations must follow – the principles of these guidelines are as follows:



Part of these guidelines requires that a Biosaftey Officer (BSO) is present at each of our playing venues during competition times. The BSO’s responsibility is to ensure our players, coaches, referees, staff and spectators all stay safe, and to make sure we all comply with the Government COVID-19 directions.  This a new role within the organisation.


Our current environment also calls for an extensive cleaning and disinfecting regime nightly, and requirements to sanitise game balls, scorebenches and equipment at every break during games and post game.



These new positions and procedures require additional resources. To cover the costs of these new requirements, all senior team sheets fees will increase to $87 per team for the new season.


Other Changes:


Below is a summary of the requirements under our new guidelines.

  1. Stay home if you are unwell – especially if you have a fever, cough, are feeling fatigued, shortness of breath or a sore throat.
  2. Arrive at the venue no more than 10 minutes before your game. If you arrive early, please wait in your car (if possible).
  3. Enter and exit through the designated entry and exit doors.
  4. Check in using the QR code provided at the entrance to each stadium. Please do this prior to entering the stadium. You will need to show a staff member that you have checked-in to be granted entry to our courts.
  5. Sanitise your ball and your hands. Hand sanitisers will be available throughout our venues, including entrances, foyers, and playing areas.
  6. Maintain social distancing within our stadiums. Ample signage will be in place to advise of this.
  7. Each participant can only have one person accompany them into the stadium.
  8. Listen and follow directions of our Biosafety Officers and staff at all times.
  9. Depart within 5 minutes of your session ending.
  10. If you test positive to COVID-19, notify us immediately.
