Dear Wattle Park Saints Member,
It has been sometime since my last communication to you and the Committee and myself would like you to know that we continue to meet and are working towards a safe return to club basketball in the near future.
It has been a challenging time for us all and I hope the disruptions to your normal routines have given you and your family an opportunity to reflect and take advantage of new learnings.
With the Government easing restrictions there will be an eventual return to training and competition. There is no direct communication about this as yet but I can inform that by the middle of August the competition will resume if all goes well in the coming weeks.
The Committee is working towards a safe return with staying informed with all our stakeholders including Basketball Victoria and our association MEBA. MEBA is taking time to make the transition back to playing as smooth as possible all our players, parents and support personnel.
Wattle Park Saints are in the process of forming helpful guidelines for our coaches, team managers, parents and children so a smooth and safe return will ensure training and playing are enjoyable in the months ahead.
I hope you have been able to keep your children active in the meantime and where possible in this wintry weather there is opportunity to dribble up and down the driveway or shoot hoops at home or with friends at school.
On behalf of the Wattle Park Saints Committee we wish you a safe time ahead and as soon as a return to basketball is given the all clear with sound guidelines in place we will let you know.
Wattle Park Saints Basketball Club.
