PLEASE CLICK HERE FOR FDBA’S LATEST COVID-19 UPDATES

Dear Members,

Following consultation with the FDBA Board of Management, General Manager and Operations Team, in the best interests of our members and the health and safety of the wider community, we offer the following update;

Summer 2019/20 Domestic Finals

Junior domestic matches were cancelled on Saturday 14/03/2020 and have been recorded as draws in accordance with the domestic competition by-laws:

6.9 Cancellation of a Fixtured Round of Matches

If due to circumstances beyond the FDBA’s control an entire round of a fixture is cancelled, the matches will not be rescheduled. All matches will be declared a 0-0 draw.

With a state of emergency declared in Victoria this morning we are facing the possibility that the Summer ’19/20 finals unfortunately may not occur.

FDBA will make a final decision on the current season finals by 5:00 pm Wednesday 18/03/2020.

Winter 2020 Domestic Season

All teams and players should register as normal with respect to the current closing dates to ensure their participation:

  • Senior teams: Closes Sunday 22/03/2020
  • Junior teams: Please contact your club directly

We will continue to work in close consultation with our governing bodies and communicate our plan moving forward as soon as possible.

During this time the FDBA website will remain your best source for any basketball related updates.

Dion Paull – Competitions Coordinator
