Hi All

The association will be commencing a $5 entry charge for any spectators that re not a parent/guardian or sibling of a player participating in a competition game that night. The parent/guardian and sibling will need to be with the player upon entry to the stadium. As a parent/guardian or sibling if you are attempting to gain entry unaccompanied by a player the $5 entry charge will be applied. Once spectators exit the building, any attempt to regain entry will incur another $5 entry charge – no “pass outs” will be given.

This will begin on Friday 22nd July, and will be enforced just prior to the 8pm timeslot each week. A security guard will be in attendance to assist the door personnel. This guard is also going to be patrolling the stadium and carpark during each timeslot.

Anyone that assists persons to gain entry via a side exit or without paying the $5 entry charge will receive a weeks’ suspension and their team will receive a written warning.

This is only for Friday Night competition, Saturday has no restrictions.
Any questions please don’t hesitate to contact me

Kind regards,

COVID-19 GUIDELINES UPDATED: 25th February 2022

Dear Members, Players and Parents,

Following the health guidelines presented by the NSW Government the following COVID safety rules are being alter from midnight 24th February 2022:

• Face Masks will no longer be compulsory to enter, spectate and exit the venue. However, we encourage to wear masks to keep your fellow patrons safe.
• No Limit on spectators for all competitions, sport events and casual bookings.
• No QR Code sign in required.
• Exit will no longer be from the back of court 1. The entry and exit will return to be through the main entrance and foyer of the stadium.
• Canteen numbers inside no longer limited, but please coordinate line up to go around the edge of court 2 towards court 1.

If you are feeling unwell and displaying COVID symptoms we please request to remain away from the stadium and complete an antigen test and record a negative result before deciding to return to the stadium.
We thank you for your patience and following all our guidelines over the last two years.

Take care and stay safe
Christian Gobolos
Chief Executive Officer


Dear Members, Players and Parents,

I would just like to forward via email the communication that was published on the BBA Facebook and Website. Please communicate this with all teams as we approach the beginning of the junior competition.

With the update of the COVID-19 Guidelines and Restrictions,  the Associations position is as follows:
• QR Code registration upon arrival, please ensure this is done as you enter the stadium.
• Face masks are mandatory in the stadium when entering, spectating and leaving the stadium. Players can remove while competing in games. It is important to note that players aged 12 years and over are required to enter the stadium with a mask.
• Encourage spectators to social distance while inside the stadium
• Unvaccinated community members are welcome into the stadium to compete or spectate.
• Junior Competition – One (1) spectator per child and siblings are allowed

The Association will no longer initiate a bio-safety officer at the front entrance to protect staff members from potential infectious visitors. While the staff will police face masks, we are requesting patrons take self-responsibility to their own safety, health practices and respect for other patrons by wearing a mask as much as they can. Also, once your game has finished to exit the stadium immediately via the doors at the end of court 1. This will eliminate potential cross infection of time periods of competition, and will also allow enough social distance spacing for the next group of parents to spectate.
Thank you for your abiding by the Association's COVID safety requests and we hope you stay as safe as possible.
Christian Gobolos
Chief Executive Officer

Dear Members, Players and Parents,


As per the directive from the NSW Government, Bankstown Basketball Stadium is currently closed from all operations until midnight 28th August 2021. We hope to re-open the stadium on Sunday 29th August 2021.

Therefore, any programs including Skills & Development, Senior & Junior Competition games, Rep Training and games, Casual court hire (basketball & badminton), casual shooting has been cancelled over this period.


Due to the extended lockdown all staff are now on reduced days/ hours and working from home. They are only contactable via their email addresses, but please be patient with receiving a response. You can obtain their email contacts from our website - https://bruinsbasketball.com.au/contact-us/


Skills & Development Classes (Bankstown)

The Association would still like to hold a few weeks of classes before the end of the term, but this will be determined by the NSW Government directions on the recommencement of community sport. The Coaching Department will provide further information around class availability and costings as we get closer to the 29th August commencement date.


Skills & Development Classes (Liverpool)

Due to the unpredictability of a start date and the fact that it’s a brand new class we have decided to cancel both classes for term 3 and will look to re-establish these classes to commence on the 6th October 2021. Those that have registered for these classes Caitlin will be in contact to attempt to roll these registrations to the new term.


Senior Competitions

Since the semi finals were scheduled to be held over August it has been decided to cancel the existing competition and then start up the Winter/Summer Competition as soon as the stadium is able to recommence operation. Sharon will share further information when it becomes available.


Junior Competitions

The Association would still like to hold the Junior Competition this season, but a few concepts will be floated to the clubs and teams on a revised competition format to allow a make up of games and possible finals format. Christine will forward this information in the near future.


Primary School Competition

Due to the extension of the lockdown and lack of weeks remaining in term 3, the Primary School Competition is cancelled. The Association is hoping to recommence the new competition pending the Department of Education & NSW Government Health directive for school sport in term 4 2021.


Bankstown Basketball Association AGM

In consultation with Tracey Lopez (President) the AGM has been cancelled for Tuesday 31st August and rescheduled for Tuesday 28th September at 7pm to be held in the Bruins Lair at the stadium with COVID restrictions including social distancing and face masks.

Representative Basketball

All Junior and Senior Rep training has been cancelled until the 31st August. The weekend games are dictated by BNSW, as soon as the information becomes available Debbie will be in contact with the team managers.

Thank you again for the support over this period and we hope to be able to open the stadium on Sunday, 29th August 2021.


Take care and stay safe
