Basketball Australia statement regarding the Wheelchair Basketball Leagues in the wake of COVID-19.
Basketball Australia prioritises the health and safety of the basketball community and in this current climate we have determined that the Wheelchair Basketball Leagues will be put on hold until further notice.
Basketball Australia are working within three key principles:
- Observing government guidelines
- Seeking advice of contemporary health and safety experts
- Ensuring the safety of the basketball community.
Basketball Australia supports the government in slowing this pandemic and reducing the peak to protect those most vulnerable in the community. Information is changing daily and as such, we will continue to provide advice as it evolves and continue to assess the risk of each of our competitions, programs and events accordingly.
We thank you for your support and understanding in this rapidly changing environment.
