NEW REGULATIONS AND BIOSAFETY OFFICERS (BSO)

All WBA Staff, Supervisors, BSO's and Volunteers must have completed the COVID-19 Infection Control Training
Social Distancing measures will be enforced at all venues with the assistance of BSO's and strategically placed signage for seating and capacity requirements.
Hand Sanitising stations are available at all venues on all courts, as well as the foyers and entries.
BSO's and WBA Officials will follow strict cleaning protocols between every game time, including the sanitisation of all equipment.
Capacity limits for players, coaches, scorers and spectators are set by the Government and DHHS. Please see Basketball Victoria's Return to Sport Guidelines for more information.
Basketballs will no longer be allowed inside any Waverley run facilities on game day. Team warm up balls and game balls will be provided at each venue.
Public water fountains will be closed until further notice.
Shaking of hands and high fives are to be discouraged at all venues.
Thank you for your support and understanding of the new return to sport conditions. Please remember to stretch and warm up prior to your game or training. A number of other sports that have returned around the country have reported higher than average injury rates. Please look after yourselves and share this information with your teammates.
