With extreme heat days occurring with greater frequency, Hills Basketball has recently consulted with Basketball Australia and Sports Medicine Australia and revised our Hot Weather Policy. We have also introduced several measures to ensure the safety and comfort of our patrons. Besides the policy itself, here are some relevant points regarding heat related issues:
The construction of the stadium is such that it is usually significantly cooler inside than the outside temperature.
On predicted extreme heat days, stadium staff take measures in the early morning to circulate as much cool air as possible to provide a manageable starting point at all our venues.
Shade protection has been added to the western wall of the Hills Basketball Stadium, reducing temperatures on courts 1 & 2 by 5+ degrees.
Hills Basketball has invested in air curtains which not only act as a barrier to the external hot air but also aid circulation in the foyer.
Air circulation in the playing areas is facilitated by industrial sized extractor fans in the larger hall (text removed) and 2 x 2m portable industrial fans in the smaller hall. Similar fans are employed at Bernie Mullane.
The measures above have been tested over consecutive days where the temperature hit 42+ degrees. Maximum temperature inside the stadium during this period was 33.5 degrees, well under the trigger point to postpone or cancel games. We trust you’ll continue to enjoy your time at Hills Basketball throughout the Summer.
To represent Hills Basketball Association is a privilege not to be taken lightly. Involvement in our Representative Program not only reflects outstanding individual skills but also implies a sound understanding of the positive philosophies of development, teamwork and sportsmanship. Accordingly, the following documents define the minimum standard of performance and behaviour expected of all participants involved with the Hills Hornets Representative Program, any of the Basketball NSW Leagues, Championships or Development Programs.
