We would like to thank everyone for their patience, support, and understanding in allowing us to thoroughly plan for a safe and fun sport experience for all of our young athletes this fall. While this athletic season looks significantly different than previous ones, we are confident that we will be able to maintain our core values of developing each child’s ability, confidence, and desire to participate in sport while adhering to current health recommendations to ensure our program is as safe as possible for all participants.
We will be utilizing a class format rather than traditional league play to allow us more flexibility in delivering a safe and effective program. Your child will participate with the same group of kids – their class – each night. The increase to 25 people in an indoor space allows us to utilize a format similar to fall athletic classes. The format allows us to focus on skill development and play small-sided games while adhering to youth sport guidelines set forth by the CDC and NCDHHS. Classes will meet once per week (approx. 50 minutes) Saturdays only for 8 weeks. If possible, we will have teammates from previous seasons in the same class to assist with comfort and continuity for players. We are in the process of planning class schedules, health and safety protocols, and program execution plan. Once everything is finalized, we will provide that information to registered parents so you will have a better understanding of how the different athletic programs will operate this basketball season.
