Basketball Victoria has the following update regarding 2020 Country basketball events.
Basketball Victoria is committed to delivering as many Country Regional Development Programs as possible in 2020. Our participants and their families have overwhelmingly supported that decision, however we need to be very flexible in our planning to consider any COVID-19 restriction that are in place.
Basketball Victoria is working with other state sporting organisations as they look to deliver activities and events. We are monitoring how some interstate activities have been operated to comply with restrictions.
The following changes have now occurred to the Basketball Victoria Country Development Programs and are current as at 28 August 2020, a further update will be provided on the 14 September.
Unfortunately, due to a lack of available dates between the rescheduled Under-12 Skills Days and the end of the year, the Under-12 Jamboree has been cancelled for 2020. We thank the Echuca Basketball Association and Campaspe Shire Council for their support of the Jamboree and look forward to it returning in 2021.
