Until such time further information comes to hand, Knox Basketball competitions will remain suspended including junior & senior domestic, VJBL, Big V, team trainings, individual skill sessions casual shooting and other programs – until at least midnight 13th April 2020.

Winter Season 2020:
There has been raised concerns about Winter season 2020 and if its progressing or not. I can assure you all that Knox Basketball are planning to have full competitions back up and running, with the aim to re-start all our competitions before finals begin in our current Summer 19/20 season. Based on today’s announcement this was also confirmed by the State Government that competitions are likely to re-start on 14th April.
Finally, Knox Basketball needs the support of all clubs, parents and players. We need your players to register for Winter 2020, and hopefully in high numbers, higher than ever before. If players don’t register then this hurts not only their own domestic clubs, but also Knox Basketball association.
KBI will issue an update in the coming days after further consultation with Basketball Victoria.
