How has COVID changed basketball?2021-07-24T17:47:38+10:00

There are some changes as to how basketball will be played in order to maintain lower density numbers in the stadiums, and to enable cleaning and contact tracing.  Mooroolbark Flashes believes that while these changes may be inconvenient in the short term, we should all support whatever changes are necessary to allow for our kids to play again with their friends, for both their health and their happiness.

Please note that all participants must QR code into the training venue as well as the stadiums on game day.

There are ongoing changes to the restrictions throughout the season, but our committee is following them closely to ensure that we abide by the new rules.  For current updates on COVID restrictions and basketball, please refer to your Flashes coordinator or the Basketball Victoria website.
