Training this Saturday 19/12/2020

Hi Huntingtower Heat Community,

Basketball training continues this week. A training roster is attached but due to capacity issues two teams will unfortunately not be allocated a time for this week but will be added ongoing. Your assistance in being flexible to make this a great experience for our kids is appreciated.

Due to current COVID-19 guidelines every player must bring the following to their allocated session:

 1. Water bottle

 2. Basketball

There is a further list of conditions for entry listed below. Please note that you will be required to scan a QR code upon entry so please bring a phone for this purpose. There will be a biosafety officer at the entrance coordinating traffic flow but please be patient as there will likely be delays. 

Each player can only be accompanied by one spectator.

I look forward to welcoming you all back to Huntingtower Heat basketball club!

COVID-Safe Protocols

Nunawading Basketball is fully committed to providing a safe environment for all members and all patrons will play a vital role in reducing the spread of COVID-19 through the promotion and practicing of good hygiene while ensuring adherence to Government requirements. As we reactivate basketball we all must ensure that we are doing the right thing at all times to protect the safety of staff, volunteers, players, officials and the wider community. It is important for Basketball Associations and Clubs to lead and promote a strong culture of COVID-19 safety for the health and wellbeing of participants and the broader community as any breaches could have ramifications for members of the community and the continuation of community sport.  Nunawading Basketball will have 2 BioSafety Officers (wearing Hi-Vis vest) on duty whilst the Nunawading Basketball Centre is open. We ask that all patrons remain polite, listen to and obey BioSafety Officers when utilising the facility.

In addition to the guidelines provided by the Victorian Government, DHHS, Whitehorse Council and Basketball Victoria, we ask all staff, volunteers, participants, coaches, officials and spectators to abide by the following protocols:
