COVID 19 UPDATE (12/08/2021)

Dear members,

The Victorian Government has announced that current COVID-19 restrictions will be extended for a 7-day period until 11.59pm Thursday, 19th August.

FDBA anticipates the resumption of domestic competitions from Saturday 21st August subject to government approval.

Domestic Competitions 

The Winter 2021 season has now been significantly impacted by 3 periods of lockdown.

All junior competitions (U10 to U21) will now be modified with the top 2 placed teams progressing straight to a grand final (changes not applicable for U8’s).

An additional regular-season round will be scheduled in place of semi-finals to provide a more equitable fixture.

No modifications have been made to the senior competition final structure at this stage.

Amended calendars can be viewed at the links below:

The upcoming Summer 2021/22 season dates are currently unchanged.

Development Programs

Development Programs are currently on hold.

Frankston Basketball will be running Zoom sessions this Sunday the 15th August at 3:00 pm for Beginners (Mini Hoops, Aussie Hoops, and All Abilities) and at 4:00 pm for Intermediate (Game Ready and Domestic Teams).

Further information will be provided shortly via email and on our website.

Frankston Blues (VJBL)
