WBA -COVID Safe Management Plan


Contract Tracing and Record Keeping:

As Basketball resumes, WBA will be utilizing the contract tracing and recording service provided by the Victorian Government.  Every venue will have a unique QR Code to sign in to the venue upon arrival. These records will be retained for 28 days and will help with any future contract tracing that may be neccesary in slowing the spread of COVID-19.

For all competitions, players listed on the scoring consoles will have their data recorded as taking part in the game. All spectators, scorers, siblings and other visitors not partaking in the match and not listed on the official score sheet must use the QR Code provided to sign in before entry. Every person entering WBA venues will be required to demonstrate to the BSO that they have successfully signed in.

If a person cannot register via the QR code, the BSO will manually record your information. This will also be retained for 28 days.

If a case arises, WBA will obtain a full report for DHHS from Basketball Victoria accordingly.

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.

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.
