UPDATE – 18 October 2021

With ACT Government roadmap out of lockdown in place, Basketball ACT has now been able to formulate our Competition Return to Play details for all competitions that were put on hold.

Dates have been finalised to allow for a return to training in the first instance, with competition rounds of the 2021 Junior Competition scheduled to coincide with the next phase of the ACT Government’s roadmap.

Basketball ACT is updating all COVID Safety procedures and protocols, which will incorporate any additional restrictions.

Key information for the 2021 Junior Competition


  • Basketball ACT will be allocating each team two x 45-minute training sessions at either the Belconnen Basketball Stadium or Tuggeranong Southern Cross Stadium;
  • Training times will be allocated similar to a team’s competition time and a half court will be allocated per team, however, U19 JPL will be allocated to a Friday night session;
  • U10s will be able to book courts for trainings through Basketball ACT on a first in first served basis. Basketball ACT will communicate separately the processes around making these bookings. Teams will be limited to one session per week. The first week of training will only be on the outdoor court in Belconnen due to indoor facilities not being able to operate at this point in time;
  • Any teams that do not require their allocated training need to let BACT know ASAP at tanya.sharp@basketballact.com.au
