Abstract

Coronavirus disease (COVID-19) has resulted in youth, academic and professional sport in New Zealand, and around the world suspending play and competitive seasons, as well as structured in-season and off-season training for all sports. In particular, the National Basketball Association (NBA) suspended the season on March 11, 2020, after NBA player Rudy Gobert tested positive for COVID-19, with NBA Commissioner, Adam Silver, initially reporting that the season suspension would last at least 30 days. However, more recent reports suggest that a mid-to-late-June return is likely the best-case scenario. This pivotal decision set off a chain of events that led to the postponement of several high-profile team sport events, including the NCAA men's and women's tournaments, the NHL season, MLB's spring training, the English Premier League season, La Liga season, Bundesliga season, Serie A season, UEFA’s European Championship, and Ligue 1 season, to name a few. This has led to an uncertain future, with National Basketball Leagues, across the globe facing unprecedented times which require diligent analysis, evaluation, and preparation to cope with the altered schedule, and the potential deconditioning of players. As such, the Guidelines for Safe Return to Training and Competition for Coaches and Players have been developed by Basketball New Zealand as a direct response to the COVID-19 pandemic. In accordance with the These guidelines support the Sport New Zealand, Balance is Better National Sport Season Transition Guidelines.
