No chance of VJBL going ahead

Surely we'd be correct to assume that due to this recent outbreak there’ll be no VJBL comp this season?

According to latest update, full steam ahead for a start on Friday, 17th July!

Most associations are now back at training, either indoor or outdoor.

Time will tell however.

9 week season beginning July 17th, play each team in your division once, 3 weeks finals over the September school holidays.

Dan Andrews has it under control so with the AFL leaving town you'd think the VJBL will certainly move forward!

Tough for associations in hotspots. Perhaps they sit out until the local area is under control?

perhaps a mass protest to push for the vjbl to reopen. the protests in Victoria seemed to be quite successful.

Expect the season to be cancelled now with latest lock downs until at least 24 July.

NW Associations and those close by are now virtually ruled out. Plus many kids travel to other clubs to play (i.e. Melbourne) from hotspots.

Time to regroup and focus on 2021.

VJBL can't proceed for the 2020 season.

A heap of suburbs and therefore several associations are in lock down for 4 weeks. Then BV have been promoting 4 weeks of training etc before games start. I know I am not great at moths but that's 8 weeks (its 1st July now, so that's takes us to end of August to start). Then school holidays are on at the end of September, so a 4 week season? Wouldn't have thought so.

Pack it up and get ready for grading in November/Decmber.

Yeah it's gone, will find out today.

Too many associations in the lockdown suburbs which training will get banned.

Issue will be u not allowed to travel outside ur lockdown area to training

I prefer the model being adopted by society - lock down affected areas but let the remainder of society get on within the parameters. VJBL should adopt the same approach - it's not fair for some associations ... but not much associated with a pandemic is and we should do the best for the most people we can.

And based on that logic U16 & U18 nationals should still go ahead even if outside Vic even if Vic can't compete!

Yes that is correct. Why not? Let the kids who can play, play. Life isn't fair ... and not is a pandemic.

Statement from BV



While our focus continues to be on a return to local participation, we also understand that there is ongoing interest in the VJBL. At this stage, due to the impacts of the lockdown zones we have decided that the VJBL season cannot commence from July 17. We believe that the VJBL is an important junior representative league for thousands of Victorians; hence we are currently working through a number of options for a potential competition resumption. We aim to provide more certainty about the VJBL in the coming days.

This year doesn't matter as far as results/grades go. Just get the kids back on court. Create 4 regions, North south east and west, and start the areas that are allowed on July 17.

BV's statement must be wrong, because 759/815 is well-connected and told us that the season will go ahead :)

Suggest a few well run associations in areas that are Orange-50 simply now start organising mini round robins amongst themselves. Help "prove-up" the ability of basketball to get back, and identify teething issues. Nice stepping stone. Restarting VJBL in one go across the whole of Melb is just too much an ask in current circumstances.

No way you can have a 16/18s Nationals without Victoria!
You've got to beat the best to be the best.
Love them or hate them, they own that tournament.
Everyone else is playing for silver, regardless if they are there or not.
Would be the hollowest title ever won.

759, 815 here. Season will go ahead and there will be kids in VJBL uniforms playing on the 17th. Unless dapper Dan locks the whole state down.

Maybe someone needs to start talking to the VJBL about refunds. That will scare them into action. 50% refund would be the least they'd be expected to pay back if cancelled now.

Refunds??? Why would VJBL be giving refunds. Not there fault the universe released a virus to reduce our over populated world.
If as a parent you paid fees to your club, they should be giving you a refund, or hold the fees over for next year.

A number of sporting bodies have given refunds for services not rendered.
