What will the VJBL season look like?

Following on from the SA thread

What will the VJBL season look like? half season plus finals? Scapped? Pushed back? Go to odd numbers for age levels and replay this season?

A bit like the NZBL thread. No one cares.

Very short.

I guess it depends on how many weeks will be available in the end.

On games already played and ladder position teams could be pooled into 2 groups of 5.

Eash plays each other once or possibly twice,(using a same night double header. Of 2 x 30 or 40 min games.)

Then semis based on the top 2 from each pool. And then final. (6 weeks)

Or if extra weeks are free, quarter finals, semis and final.

If double headers are held at the same venue, from the same pool, each team could play 2 opponents on the same night with a 30 or 40 min game.
Making a 4 week season possible. Or even 3 if you do semis and final at the same vemue and day, and play both finals there.

The above can be adjusted outwards if more weeks available.

Scrap it or play weekend tournaments to catch up,not as many senior comps playing on weekends with demise of NBL 1 and such,hard to let it go too late in the year as you run into what would be grading normally,I'd be more inclined to think it might go into the too hard basket,one round of matches is sufficient maybe,top 2 playoff in grand final,for VC the 2 grand final winners meet to decide title Winner,feel sorry for kids in last year of 18s,but if you let it go too long thes guys will run into VCE exams,

So by mid July they are saying maximum 100 inside. So for 1 games you have 20 players, 20 parents, 4 coaches, 2 refs, that's 46 as a minimum per game, plus the stadium staff so does that mean only 2 court venues? Or every second court?
What happens when the following game turns up? Do they have to wait outside for everyone to leave? Split game times in 2 court venues?

Or are parents banned from coming into stadiums to reduce numbers?
As a parent are you going to drive from Sandringham to Werribee for your child to play, and sit in the car for over an hour, waiting for them to come back out? I wouldn't think so.

Maybe Associations should spend time expanding their development program's, their domestic competitions etc and hope that once trials are done in October, when we are close to being back for grading games in November.

Playing games on the weekend...
when are domestic games? Saturday's?
When do teams train? Sunday's?

Playing 2 games on one night...
does that mean we have twice as many people hanging around in the stadium?
do the under 12's have to play games starting at 9pm?

As a basketball stadium employee its 100 max inside that is everyone all up, so if uve got 6 courts same rules.

U will have to have teams with max 7 p players each, max 2 coaches, 2 refs and no crowd.

Teams can only arrive maxium 10 mins b4 the game and must leave 10 mins max afterwards. They will have to enter and exit different doors and must wait outside at a socially distant distance.

Its going to be a nightmare!

Most this stuff should b on bball vic website.

Heard some associations are back training outdoors and pushing for a restart so we get half a season in.

Bit of a nightmare for Associations. Health and safety protocols will be ramped up.

For most associations there will be an imperative for casual shooting to begin first, followed by domestic basketball.

The VJBL re-commencing will be later on.

The key is trying to mitigate risk - you would hate to be the one who opens the doors only to have the equivalent of a cedar meats breakout.

Council run facilities will still have to have the OK from their respective councils before beginning back.

The use of school venues for training and games will also be a sticking point.

Training outside is all well and good, but the guidelines have been confusing and some clubs have decided to advise their rep teams they aren't sanctioning those sessions - risk/injury, etc...

Still a fair bit to go before "normal" happens.

Very Clear on the both the BV website and DHHS , focus is on Domestic, easier to keep local members numbers lower. More importantly way to much travel in the VJBL, they don't stadium to stadium travel as many families do every Friday night, which puts everyone at risk. Most likely Outcome for 2020 , August return for Junior domestic and VJBL 2021 Tryouts as normal in October. Those associations that like to lock out parents at tryouts will be rapt, legit reason to do so this year. See you all in late November for Grading Phase1...

Sounds like speculation to me, based on my discussions. Would expect it to be easier to manage the structure of teams in VJBL than domestic, which can be a real rabble at the best of times. Stadium to stadium point is a furphy and exaggerated by the post above ... 'puts everything be at risk'! There remains a significant push to get VJBL back up this year. If you don’t know, and it really does read as if you really don’t know, best to be quiet.
