Due to the current COVID restrictions and following the WA Government’s latest health advice, Basketball WA has made the difficult decision to CANCEL this weekend’s WEEK 2 BWA Country Championships.
We understand the impact this has on all our Associations. Our staff will be in touch with you to answer any additional questions.
We hope that we will be able to schedule some competition opportunities for the age groups affected later on in the year and we will liaise with Associations to determine the best way to do this.
A decision on Week 3 and 4 fixtures will be made by the end of the week. Our community’s safety and health is a priority, so we will continue to follow the latest guidelines and requirements.
Thank you to all associations, clubs, players, families and the broader basketball community for your understanding. We share in your disappointment that a great weekend showcasing our Country teams has to be cancelled.
Stay safe and please continue to follow the #COVID19 WA Guidelines so we can get back to playing ball as soon as possible.
