BV should come out now and make a statement on it.

The league doesn't need to come out. Vic government has pretty much done it today. Their list covers a large amount of people

Coaches should do it to protect their players.

Would be good for associations to be able to give that comfort to parents.

This will be forced by stadiums I suggest, so parents and coaches will need to be vaxxed to get in. Personally, I hope they do that and enforce it, at least this year and the first half of next year.

Yes agree that certainty is needed. Mark Neeld from Geelong flagged it in a local paper today but BV then were asked and said no decision as yet...mixed messages

How is "we haven't made a decision yet" a mixed message?

It's not, it’s a non-message. They have a couple of weeks to say something. But if I was a coach, official or parent, I would very much assume that vax will be required ...

Hopefully this medical apartheid isn't enforced. Sadly most people are cooked.

Mark Neeld doesn't speak on behalf of BV. How is that mixed messages.

Government will make the call, expect vaccination to be required. Get the jab or don't bother.

Kids over 12 should also be vaxxed, in fairness to the coaches and officials.

So a 12 year old is banned from playing sport because he/she isn't double vaccinated, and that's ok? If so, this country is fuc### up!

If 10-15% of adults will be segregated from society for making a choice not to take part in a VOLUNTARY medical procedure, that's terrible, but those adults at least can weigh things up and justify their own decision, enforcing a mandate on kids is just sinister.

You'd think that at least double that % of the youngest teenagers won't be vaccinated for now due to understandable hesitation, even from vaccinated parents, due lack of long term testing, you can't just remove all those kids from teams.

Vaccination will be mandatory for all NBL1 players coaches and officials

Flying is one thing, I think you'll find rapid antigen testing will end up being the norm regardless of Vax status, but either way that doesn't even compare to banning kids from playing sport.

How many parents of 13yo girls do you think are uncomfortable having their child vaccinated for now, at least until extensive testing is done on the age group?

Life is uncomfortable for everyone right now. Still, double vax will be required. There's no avoiding it.

^ I guess you are one of the ones not vaxxed, and don't want your kid to miss sport b/c of your decision. Just a guess, might be wrong.

I don't have kids, yet, that's a reason for my personal hesitation right now, even if chances are very low. But where as I disagree with any segregation of society, at least mounting an argument for adult vaccination has at least some merit, regardless if I strongly disagree, that's just my choice for now. I'm at an age where I have friends with children who are petrified right now, and some of them are vaxxed themselves.

Mandating kids who have a statistically irrelevant chance of getting seriously I'll from covid, and knowing the Vax only reduces transmission and doesn't stop it is unethical and just wrong. There's a higher chance a teenage boy without serious underlying health conditions will end up in ICU with myocarditis from the vaccine than needing ICU from covid itself.

there is a scenario where their parents don't allow them to get vaxxed because of their dumb beliefs. this must be frustrating for the kids that aren't allowed to play basketball.

^ Correct, any parent not getting it won't be having their children done either that's for sure, so say that's 10%, but there's also a fairly large number of parents who are vaxxed due to workplace pressure, elderly parents, slight hesitancy for themselves but have come around to deciding yes, but they won't expose their Children to unknown risks, even if they may be rare.

How's the local u14 comp looking if even 20% of kids are shut out? Or is it 30%? Good luck if that's the decision made for community sport.

^ 30% kids without the vaccine? I'm sure that wil be less. they won't put the rule in place straight away, they will do it by early-mid next year when there is enough time for kids to get vaccinated

and anyways the government won't care how many players they lose. They will put the rules in place and the associations will have to follow

If Victoria opens up in November for Vax only in venues for 12+, and even if it's 16+, does VJBL plan a restart?

In Victoria there won't be a known date for when unvaxed are allowed back like in NSW, where from December 1st all restrictions including Vax mandates will end.
