Fees relief and resource reduction

With clubs cutting back significantly on services to their players over the coming weeks and maybe months will fees relief be available to players?

Are clubs beginning to consider laying off other costs such as Coaching Directors, Premier League Coaches and imports who are sitting dormant at the moment?

With BSA suspending its programs, virtually stopping all revenue, what does this mean for dormant staff over the coming months?

Will there be a boom in 3 on 3 comps as large numbers and gatherings set to be introduced?

Are basketball layoffs a reality? Is this being considered by decision makers?

I suspect most clubs haven't invoiced for winter (and most would not be paying for winter until they find out what is going on) rather than fee relief how can clubs continue to afford staff?

Agreed above. A family losses minimum $ while some clubs will bleed $$$$$$. Grants and government at both local level and state level will be surely needed.

Tough one for Clubs to manage as some would have locked in hire contracts with venues. They also don't have any room in their budgets to take a loss on expenses such as staffing.

As mentioned in the past, apparently big spending clubs in seniors don't use money from their junior programs but rely on sponsorship to pay their men and women. So fees won't have any bearing on senior payments. Going to be very interesting now to see if that indeed is the case.

If no seniors gets played than it doesn't change anything

And Norwood will be missing their cash cow in Easter tournament, except next year's fees to account for that.
Also have to think of casual employees losing money from lockdown. Interesting that BSA employees will be working from home as announced, not sure how that works with no competitions. Then again finding someone that actually works in bsa is next to impossible!

smart clubs will have a relief fund and reduce fees by a correct % for amount of time lost.

Clubs will invoice fees once trainings start up again as this covers court hire and paid staff. You would expect a deduction dependent on how many weeks are lost.

Most venues are schools so once schools shut, those payments will be stopped.

Hard times coming for all sporting clubs
