Dear Keilor Basketball community,

In the last few days there have been several changes to government advice and responses to the constantly evolving situation of COVID-19.

The health and wellbeing of the KBA community is the Board’s first priority as we deal with the impact.

We understand that the effects may last for some time and KBA will continue to support our community as best we can.

While all programs are postponed for the time being, we will continue to engage participants and prepare for the eventual return of programs and competitions


KBA Director of Coaching, Liam Glascott will release a training and skills program this week. for players to maintain their skills and engagement while at home.

We suggest all coaches (domestic & rep) encourage their players to participate and follow the program.
