BIG V / WARATAH LEAGUE / WA SBL 2020

Will the players from NBL1 now play in these leagues if they commence the 2020 seasons later on in the year ?

Also anyone have any idea if WA SBL and the Waratah League will finally move into the NBL1 bracket or will they delay it for another year again ?

Will teams be allowed to make changes to their initial squads if the season commences at a later date this year

It is most certain there will not be any WA SBL played this year.

And yes, highly likely the SBL will be NBL1 West next year. It was always on the cards anyway.

Wrong. They are pushing hard to have a condensed season later in the year.

Or will Youth League be stacked????

Zero cases two days in a row. If this holds there's a good chance of an SBL season in some form I would say.

When you don't have interstate, much less international, travel and crowds are measured in the dozens it's a lot easier to get back up and running.

You'd have to doubt whether some teams would be interested in starting back up again, I know players from multiple clubs in Big V who won't be playing this year if they do get a season going.

I hear there is discussion among some clubs in Melbourne regarding running their own league if Big V doesn't get going.

Optimistic to think they'd be allowed to run anything really.

Most leagues will be reducing teams to 9 or 10 players per game. 1 coach and a team manager. No spectators.

Big V is surely monitoring what is happening with other sporting leagues.

In the news today some senior footy leagues in Melbourne are resuming on July 25th should everything continue on its current path. If footy leagues are resuming then there is no reason why Big V shouldn't.

Yes footy is outside but a minimum of 36 guys on the ground at the same time tackling each other has to be a bigger risk than 10 guys on a basketball court playing a non-contact sport.

Pretty sure there is contact in Basketball.
10 guys on the court
2 refs
2 coaches
4 assistant coaches
2 Team Managers
10 Bench players
4 Scoretable
2 Stats
1 Match Day Manger

This would be absolute minimum to run a game. And its indoor.

AFL and NRL are restarting. Strict guidelines in place for teams.

There is no reason for Big V to restart in July when the season would be due to finish in August/September and I suspect many clubs would say the same. How many players would you actually get wanting to return. This would be the longest most players would have had off in their careers and would be risking injury coming back with even 4 weeks notice. Would be better off running some preseason tournaments next year to knock off the cobwebs.

WNBL will be beginning their season with crowds and they will have no imports. This is a tier 1 league.

Disagree, most Big V players want to play

Youth league maybe. Seniors probably not. Clubs need to prioritise venues for revenue. Domestic and VJBL before the cash drain that is Big V. Sponsors barely exist.

If we were staring up the season next week I would say many players would want to play. But in 6-7 weeks time how many would be bothered for a short season. Especially females.

Interesting to see NZ NBL able to restart their season so quickly

Is this a lost opportunity for the state leagues which could have gained local viewership online for games before the restart of the NBA season kind of like NZ NBL is doing
