Has an SA club withdrawn all their teams?

Rumours are saying that a SA district club has pulled all their district teams out of the BSA competition due to COVID. Has anyone else heard this?

Parents involved with the club have not been told anything other than a number of teams could not play round one.

It's not Norwood because they are still running the biggest domestic comp in Adelaide so is all good playing. If it is then it might just be some teams with Covid cases

Then I would suggest the OP has over stated on facts
They would not have removed all teams
That would cost them dollars & ACBA continues with protocols in place
I bet they play tonight

They may but they definitely pulled all teams until rules changed on close contacts and isolation

Had to change the close contact rule, parents can't just have kids missing a week of school for each close contact.

To many would simply stop playing.

What the last 4 days has proven to us is that BSA is completely powerless and has no spine. One Club makes a threat and BSA cave in.

Every other club should be watching and do whatever it takes now to get exactly what they want from BSA.

A peak body no more.

#552 who caved and how? Wouldn't think BSA get much say in SA Health guidelines, be nice if they could but wouldn't think so!

I heard it was Mavs that got the rules changed. Most of their u16 boys played in the Riverland tournament against teams who have now positive players. But they seem to think its not a problem.

No rules were changed at all
The definition of close contact has not changed
Bsa just sent out the same information again with a few more words

As for Norwood
Seems they pulled out of a few games - U10's

They run the biggest & best domestic comp in Adelaide so they are in a good position to help with protocols if bsa ask

#559 may not be a problem any more with the SA Health change to close contact reporting.

I'm fairly confident BSA would ask SA Health about COVID protocols rather than going fricking Norwood for direction

God there's some absolute shit written above in this thread. If you bother to read Basketball SA's recent update on Facebook it says in consultation with SAPOL the definition of a close contact has changed in a basketball setting.
If you play on a team with a positive case you are not necessarily classed a close contact now. This will limit the requirement for teammates to isolate meaning less cases of forfeiting games because the whole team will no longer be in quaretine.
So the rules and definitions have changed, making it easier for clubs to remain involved without being concerned at losing half your teams through isolation via close contacts.
So Basketball SA didn't cave to anyone's threats, they were provided updated information from SAPOL which has made it better for all involved in the sport to remain engaged.

Love it when some one posts everyone is wrong, then is wrong themselves.

"The SAPOL COVID-19 Coordination Group has provided clarification around the application of the close contact guidelines."

Not changed at all, BSA got further clarification.

SAPOL haven't changed the rules since the previous update from BSA. BSA just used the grey area to create more grey in the rules putting the decision making back on the individual parent.

Absolute mess. Norwood pushed BSA. BSA jumped.
