that would be very interesting.

Does that indicate 10 teams? play each once then finals?

or double headers each week?

If not all teams are able to participate or don't take it seriously then it may be worth just parking it for the year

Big V has said that any comp that happens this year will not impact promotion/relegation and it will be optional participation.

I reckon most clubs would enter.

Given the way the Covid case numbers are progressing in Victoria, by then there would be no reason not to have a season of some sort kick off

Optional to have a team in? Seems a bit odd? Half of Melb went to a rally on the weekend so why not play games asap?

Good point. Vic Government practically gave the big thumbs up to mass public gatherings without social distancing.

Might as well allow basketball games.

Where did you hear this info. As far as I am aware only BV and Big V know the models and this is only after State Government release information around restriction relaxation. STOP with dates or say who the source is

So is there any legitimacy to the July 18th restart plan? Or what are we doing here...where did you hear that from?

Looks like we all might get in 1 training session a week, non contact with full team from 22nd if State Government follow Federal lead.

Looking at what the state government has said there is no reason Big V wouldn't be back by the end of July.

I think it would be silly for Big V to play this year. Start date would be into August when the regular season is normally already over. Allow associations to focus on their domestic competitions for the remainder of this year.

Big V could do this and call it South Coast Classic

2020 West Coast Classic to fill the void of cancelled SBL season.

Basketball WA in consultation with all SBL clubs is excited to unveil the all new West Coast Classic, 2020 WA State Amateur Competition.

The 10-week competition will include all 12 Women's SBL teams and all 14 Men’s SBL teams, including regional clubs, the Geraldton Buccaneers, South West Slammers & Goldfields Giants.

"The clubs have all embraced this opportunity to get back on the court and engage our basketball community" said SBL General Manager, Adam Bowler.

“Basketball WA appreciates the cooperation from our clubs to navigate the financial and logistical difficulties to support the return of basketball. This support has ensured our regional clubs who have competed in the SBL for over 30 years can continue to be involved.

“The West Coast Classic will offer development opportunities for our athletes, coaches and officials while supporting their mental and physical health during this uncertain time. It is important that we provide our basketball community the chance to reconnect and we know basketball plays an important role in this.”

The competition will tip-off on July 24, with all teams to play each another once in a home and away fixture. The top 4 teams following the regular season will compete in Semi-Finals and Grand Finals between Friday 25 September and Sunday 27 September.

Further information and fixtures to be announced at www.sbl.asn.au.

12 June 2020

END

Seems Big V will have a shortened season

At this stage it looks like it will be a 10 week home and away season plus finals starting in early August
- Top 4 finals series.
- No promotion and relegation of teams from the final 2020 ladder positions for the 2021 season.
- The competition will be opt-in by teams that want to.

Clubs will vote on it this week

How are clubs funding this possible season?
No income for clubs for 4 months, staff on jobkeeper etc. Is it good management to spend $k on entry fees?

Re: above

The plan is for registration costs to be reduced by 50% or more because of a shortened season and possibly smaller rosters.

I believe there is also a federal relief granted available for clubs ($5000) and associations ($15000) due to the circumstances from COVID.

Clubs have been advised to not pay players unless they can afford it. I know one club out in the west of Melbourne has told all their paid players there will not be any payments this season.

Most clubs sent imports home so money will be saved there.

Everything will be fine with a shorter season. Negative people just want to put out there every possible issue / worst case scenario that could possibly come up.

Reality is clubs will get teams on the floor and season will happen.

You have to have been registered with that club to play with it. But my understanding (right or wrong) is it is open to all Victorian clubs (Big V or NBL1)

NBL1 teams can not enter whatever format BIGV choose to have, that has already been confirmed. Their respective Youth League teams are allowed to enter, due to the fact they are intact in the BIGV competition to begin with.

There is a proposed 3 on 3 tournament for NBL1 South teams. Again, details are being ironed out.

The EOI request from the Big V made to clubs deals specifically with Big V leagues playing a modified season which would end around end of October/start of November. That includes Championship and below and then VYC.

There was no category on the EOI form asking for NBL1 clubs to submit to play in the modified Big V league in 2020. The two are separate.

The Big V should perhaps just merge this season with the CBL over summer.

The information coming form the Big V during this pandemic has been shocking, they communicate nothing.

I know people hate for a season to be cancelled, but what is worse, the torture of sitting around waiting, anxiety of trying to stay fit and ready to go for when it starts.
Just put everyone out of the misery and cancel it so people can more on.

Teams can't even get access to their stadiums until 13th July, then a 4 week training block to round 1, start in mid-August when the season is normally done.

How many year 12 and uni students play? Given the lead up to exams.

Time to let the BigV season go. I can't imagine there are players/coaches/clubs/fans that are that desperate to play in a makeshift league.

If there was a lot of revenue to be had by running league then sure go ahead. But clubs are already struggling and adding more costs will not help them.

Teams will just have to do an extended pre-season to prepare for the next season (assuming this mess is all gone by then)

Plenty of teams want to get back at it.
