Due to the announcement from the Victorian Premier, Daniel Andrews yesterday afternoon with Metropolitan Melbourne going back to the stage 3 restrictions, the EDJBA Committee of Management has had no choice but to cancel the Winter 2020 season which was proposed to begin next Saturday, July 18th. This announcement is in line with Basketball Victoria’s announcement with all competitions in Metropolitan Melbourne to return to RED-0 from July 9th for a period of 6 weeks (August 20th).
The EDJBA are now in a position where it is important that everyone follows the directives of the Victorian Government to stay at home whilst the restrictions are put back in place from 11:59pm tonight.
The EDJBA will work through the next steps and to what this exactly means for Summer 2020/21 over the coming weeks.
Whilst it is extremely disappointing that we may not see competition for a while, the health and safety of all our members is paramount whilst we try and slow the spread of COVID-19 in Victoria.
During this next 6 weeks, please stay safe, stay connected and hopefully we will see kids back on court soon.
