As expected, Governor Walz announced a four week “pause” in all youth sports due to the increasing number of COVID cases within our state. Therefore, we will be suspending our in-house and travel basketball seasons immediately until further notice. Our hope is that practices will be able to resume on Monday, January 4, 2021, with competitions resuming on Saturday, January 9, 2021.
We will continue to monitor the situation and will follow the guidance of the Center for Disease Control and the Minnesota Department of Health if/when we are allowed to return to the court.
We hope that you and your family stay healthy!
Should you have any questions, please feel free to email email@example.com.
We are currently working to secure a zoom training partner to keep every player engaged and improving their skills during the COVID-19 Season Pause. Check back here soon for more details - we will also email training opportunities out to the MVBA community.
The MVBA Board is closely monitoring the current situation with youth sports and COVID-19. At this time, we are hoping to be able to compete in tournaments (for traveling basketball) and the North Metro In-House Basketball League (for in-house programming).
The constantly changing state of the COVID-19 pandemic will require flexibility as we continue to work with school district officials and follow any safety guidance and best practices provided by the CDC and the Minnesota Department of Health.
Due to the uncertain nature of this year’s season, the MVBA Board has developed the following documents you'll find below:
