UPDATED INFO FROM Ontario Basketball (OBA):
JULY 27 NEWS: The OBA has postponed the start of the COMPETITIVE schedule until January 2021 and designated the return to competitive play as Phase 5 of its return-to-play guidelines.
JULY 24 NEWS:
Warriors Basketball is currently waiting for the Ministry of Education to announce its plans for reopening schools. Our gym time is booked through the Community Use of Schools Program through our local school boards. Once we have information regarding the Community Use of Schools Program, Warriors will determine program offerings adhering to the OBA’s resumption of play guidelines.
The OBA has currently issued return-to-play guidelines for Phase 3 of the Provinces reopening plan:
“First and foremost, please remember that all the current restrictions and those that will come into effect as we reach next stages, are imposed by the Ontario Government and medical health authorities. These, and the Return to Play protocols in development by OBA, are designed to facilitate the ongoing and continued safety of our members and all Ontarians.
This document outlines working timelines, guidelines, measures and precautions that support a phased Return to Play plan while following health and safety measures at all times. We encourage our members to read and share these guidelines for Phase 3 and the OBA will continue to update these guidelines as restrictions are lifted.”
Once the province and school boards issue information regarding the reopening of schools, Warriors will be able to make decisions, with guidance from health authorities and Basketball Ontario, for the safe resumption of basketball activities.
