Basketball returns to Boardman

Boardman Stadium came alive again over the weekend with the return of junior basketball.

The Jets welcomed back its young players for Junior Jets Try-Outs, Aussie Hoops and the Flight Path program.

Speaking before the weekend, Sunbury Basketball Association administrator Erin Pearce said the restrictions couldn’t put a dampener on the good news of a return to community sport.

“Everyone in the basketball community is really excited to get back on the court this week,” Pearce said.

Despite the easing of restrictions, Basketball Victoria has continued to enforce some public health guidelines.

Venue attendees are required to be fully vaccinated and masks are required for all patrons that are not playing, coaching or refereeing matches.

One parent or guardian is allowed for games, training sessions and programs, but no regular spectators.

The junior domestic competition will continue with its make-up rounds until the end November, which will be followed by finals.

The stadium is also open for casual shooting between 10am and 3pm at $3 per person.
