Doubt 14s goes ahead just logistically too difficult for clubs to qualify, fundraise and organise by the end of 2020.

16s and 18s will be decoded July 15 but I think both are a big chance of happening either in October or December.

U14 Nationals are more important than the other two championships. Basketball Australia should leave no stone unturned to get this tournament in place

Lol how?

U16s and u18s are for national team selection.

U14s may not even have the best players from that age group playing in the tournament.
Some teams have the best player yet the team does not qualify for club champs through state comps.

As it stands WA, SA, QLD and NT should hold their own tournament(s) given the fact they are clearly in control of covid19. For arguments sake you put 16s and 18s in Perth in October (Warwick & Bendat / Joondalup)

You then have a restructured 14s tournament

QLD 4 clubs
SA & WA 3 Clubs
NT 2 Teams

12 Boys Teams / 12 Girls Teams
2 pools of 6 or 4 pools of 3

So how is players from NSW going to be considered for the junior aussie teams and camps if they are not attending?

NSW havent decided that, they did say that their priority was getting basketball back up and running but that was 4 weeks prior to knowing any fixed dates for return. We now have a fixed date of 18th July for the waratah league and first week in August for our jnr metro league.

18s is critical not only for national team selections but also for college scholarships.

Thats good to hear. Hopefully BA will hurry with the dates and venue.

None of them are critical and the 14's is the least critical of all. It is important Domestic competitions get back and running so that the sport doesn't lose too many players. All these competitions are just nice little rewards along the way and the kids involved are not the ones who we are in danger of losing from the sport.

I think you will find similar to cricket National Representative teams will be severely impacted by COVID-19 over the next 18 months - 2 years. Their selection is not critical at all right now

Sorry disagree, if there isn't a legitimate pathway for our talented jnr players we loss them from the sport. Both sides can be balanced, obviously having the grass roots up and running is a priority but making sure the high performance aspect of the sport is functioning is a major consideration.

I believe all states maybe bar Vic are back up and running from 1st July.

BA have just announced that 14's will not go ahead

There's still a case to be made to say that clubs from all states except NSW and VIC could hold their own tournament

The way Victoria is heading, they will be going back in to restriction. That means there will be a period of time under restrictions while they get the infections under control. Then a slower release from restrictions, which could be some time, to ensure they don't get another wave.

It means that Victorian teams might not be back training and preparing for months. Do they have U16/18 nationals without Victoria? Do they hold it with Victoria, but know that Victorian teams have had significantly less time to prepare?

I don't know how you can hold it under the circumstances. Probably best to cancel this year.

I doubt that BA will cancel U16/U18 AJC. They will just play it later in the year

Whether people want to admit it or not, BA is heavily influenced by their neighbour's in BV. If the Vics can't send teams to nationals, then you can assume that same influence will see nationals canceled. They're too proud a state to just let anyone else win what they feel is rightfully there's each and every year

Latest from a BA staff member this afternoon is that 16s and 18s will be going ahead just not in Victoria. Have heard WA have been approached with Bendat
(18s) and Warwick (16s) to host them concurrently in the October holidays with all states except VIC expected to attend

Not even remotely true to the above post

It should be true. WA is the safest place. Totally makes sense for 18s anyway. Except for maybe Vics not attending. Make them all have COVID tests a few days before they travel. If all clear, they are in.

Can confirm there is definitely truth to the above post. BA and BWA have been in talks for a couple of weeks. VIC participating will require a bit of organising to ensure all are healthy etc. For it to go ahead though, WA would have to relax their isolation requirements otherwise teams would need to be over there for three weeks at least. Interesting times ahead given a decision has to be made some time in the next two weeks for both age groups.

VJBL

With the re-introduction of Stage 3 Restrictions for Metropolitan Melbourne, we unfortunately have no alternative but to cancel the 2019/2020 VJBL Championship Season. Further details for associations and the 2020/2021 season plan will follow in the near future.

Big V

With the re-introduction of Stage 3 Restrictions for Metropolitan Melbourne, we unfortunately have no alternative but to cancel the 2020 Big V Season. Further details for associations and the 2021 season plan will follow in the near future.
