*Given the unusual nature of this event, we have had to take into consideration mercy rule guidelines. We are still under restrictions and cannot include any form of grading. Therefore, this measure is to accommodate the variety of skill levels throughout the age groups, and to ensure the fairest possible outcome. We encourage all Players, Coaches & Officials to consider these guidelines and ensure everyone has a positive and fun experience.

We are excited to bring basketball back to the Keilor community, however we do recognise there may be some hesitation. We ask that all parents, coaches and players please be considerate of the participation focus of this event and avoid too much emphasis on the competitive nature. Mercy Guideline- If at any time throughout the game your team takes the lead by 10 points. All players on your team must take possession of the ball before your team can score.
