Travel Basketball Update
I hope you and your families are doing well and staying safe. I’m reaching out to share with you where we stand in terms of preparing for a potential GD travel basketball season.
The CMYBL has informed member teams that it will not begin a season until January 10th at the earliest. At this point they are looking at a shortened potential season with modifications to roster limits and other changes to approach. They are taking time to work out that approach and I will reach out when we have more information.
As a GD Travel program, we are examining our options, which include alternative approaches if the CMYBL is not a viable option. We are looking at gym space, clinics, and other ways to get kids safely involved in basketball activity in some manner or another.
Ideally I would have more concrete information for you at this time, but unfortunately many of our decisions to move forward are contingent upon guidance from the state, our district, and other entities.
I appreciate your patience, and I will share more information as it becomes available.
