Equality and Inclusion
Some of you may have seen the recent article regarding the alleged use of racial slurs during a basketball game in Canberra on the weekend of 24-26 July.
The article serves as a timely reminder to players, coaches, parents and volunteers that we all have a role to play in preserving the integrity of the game and doing our part to uphold the values of the sport.
At Norths we strive to foster a community of equality and inclusion, where players of all ages and skill levels can come together to share their love of basketball. We pride ourselves on being a Development Club and believe that everyone should have the opportunity to play basketball in a safe and supportive environment.
To that end, please do not hesitate to raise the issue if you observe or become aware of any behaviour that contradicts this intent. This can be raised with the team manager or coach in the first instance, or by contacting our senior committee members including myself.
Together we can send a clear message that any behaviour that undermines equality and inclusion has no place in our sport. If you have any questions or would like to discuss further please do not hesitate to contact me via at NorthsPresident@yahoo.com.au

Basketball and COVID-19
We're so pleased to see everyone back on the court. However, there are some extra protocols we need to follow in the current environment.
Please read the Norths Return To Play in a Covid-Safe Environment document on the rules and conditions that we are obliged to put into place for players, parents and coaches to join in on the road back to playing.
Please note that players will not be allowed to attend team training sessions if they have not registered with Norths to play in the 2020 Winter season.
If anyone has any questions or would like to discuss further please speak with your team coach or manager. Alternatively, please contact the relevant coordinator at:
