Sharks Update - Nov 2021



Return to Sport Update

Geelong United Basketball Association has confirmed the start dates for the all competitions.

· Seniors, U20s & U23s will commence from 8 November, 2021.

· All other age groups will commence from 15 November, 2021.

Contrary to previous communications, the Government and Basketball Victoria has now removed the requirement for participants in Community Sport to be fully vaccinated.

However, there are still some exceptions to this, as vaccination requirements are still in force at the council run facilities, namely the Arena in North Geelong and the Leisuretime Sports Precinct in Corio. At these two venues, anyone 16 years and over must provide proof of vaccination upon check-in.

Masks are also required at all venues (mandatory for those 12 and over), however Players, Coaches & Officials are exempt during participation.

We confirm that registrations are now open for all age groups.

As previously advised, club fees remain unchanged for Summer season at $40 for juniors and $50 for seniors. However, we will be providing a discount of $10 per player.
