Basketball Saskatchewan Return to Sport

July 7th 2020

With the release of the Canada Basketball Guidelines for Return to Play and Phase 4.2 of the ReOpen Saskatchewan Plan now officially scheduled for Monday June 29th, Basketball Saskatchewan is able to release the basketball guidelines for Return to Sport V1.5 in our province.  This latest version has 1 key change from the previous version:

  1. Indoor Basketball has now moved to Phase 2 of the Return to Sport Plan

BSI is aware that the announcement by the Government of Saskatchewan indicated that competition could be played on outdoor courts, but in consultation with Canada Basketball and the Saskatchewan Association of Basketball Officials we have made the decision to delay the jump from Phase 1 to Phase 4 of our Plan (for outdoor) until we are confident in the safety procedures that are put in place to protect all participants.  We aim to have these guidelines out in July.

We have also updated our Risk Assessment and Management Tool so it will be the only document needed during the initial submission for sanctioning (see link below).

These guidelines are primarily intended for use by our member organizations to work towards receiving sanctioning to be able to safely restart their programming, however we are also working in collaboration with sport bodies outside of our membership to share our guidelines.

It is important to note that all of the following documents are expected to have multiple versions as more information is provided from the Government of Saskatchewan, the Saskatchewan Health Authority and Canada Basketball.  

We look forward to working with each of our member organizations as you look to develop your official Return to Play plan.
