WASPS Heat Policy


Wantirna Wasps Basketball club during all game time will abide by the KBI Heat Policy.  Wasps Committee will conduct their best endeavours to ensure that members have the opportunity to make themselves aware of the KBI Heat Policy from time to time, whether that be communicated by email, facebook (referring members to a website) or through the Wasps website www.waspsbb.com.au


If the Government declares a "catastrophic" or "code red" fire day all training will be cancelled.  A notice will be placed on the website http://waspsbb.com.au/play-time as well as the club facebook page.

In the event that the ambient temperature exceeds 36 degrees Celsius at any training venue, that scheduled training session will be cancelled.

For other times of extreme heat, with common sense, participants can cope with our extremely hot summer days. A common sense approach would see coaches instructing appropriate and less physical demanding skills practice as well as ensuring that both they and players take appropriate short rest periods as well as maintaining the appropriate fluid intake.

Where a player has any special medical conditions professional advice should be sought concerning their participation.  Unless medical advice prohibits the player participating in hot weather players are encouraged to train.
