Our players are suiting up for a game this weekend. It's be the first time they play since March, and we couldn't
be more excited.
Returning to basketball and sports is important. It gives our players a sense of normalcy.
As always, the well-being and safety of our players, staff and the families we serve is our number one priority.
Masks will be worn while players are on the bench and anyone in the stands must wear a mask as well. Balls will also be cleaned and the arena will be sanitized between games.
Basketball is considered a moderate risk sport because it only requires players to be in brief contact with one another.
Before returning your child to the game, you may want to consider if they are at high risk for the virus with any preexisting conditions such as heart disease, kidney disease, or lung-related conditions, such as asthma. Although children and teens tend to develop less severe symptoms than adults, studies have shown they can spread the virus at similar rates as adults. While rare, a small number of children and teens also develop multisystem inflammatory syndrome (MIS-C), a serious condition that can affect the heart and other organs.
And if your child is sick, or you think they have been exposed to the virus, please stay home.
