May 4th Update:
We wanted to update all of you in response to the Coronavirus outbreak we are still experiencing. We have made adjustments to our previously announced schedule in-line with guidelines from other local, state and national groups.
1. Due to the Stay At Home order extending to May 31st, any scheduled tryouts for the month of May are cancelled. The BBA Board is in the midst of discussing a possibility of placing players on teams instead of having a tryout as soon as the order is lifted so we can expedite an opening day to the season and keep everyone safe. We will make everyone aware of our preparation to start the season so you can register your boy if you have not yet done so. We will provide a reasonable amount of time to register while proceeding quickly to form teams.
2. Any players who sign up after teams are formed will still be placed on teams after the player drafts are completed (within a week after the season starts).
3. We are developing a plan for keeping players, coaches, and families safe by using recommended local health guidelines from the time practices start through the completion of the season. We will provide the information to every team member.
We believe these steps will help reduce the exposure for all of our families and limit potential contamination that is avoidable if we take this prudent course of action. These steps will reduce some of our preseason practice time, but will still allow the season to start as soon as possible. If this outbreak continues to get worse, BBA will revisit these issues and make announcements in a timely fashion. The health of these kids and their families is our primary concern.
We want to reaffirm that BBA has never been in the business of taking parents’ money and not providing an opportunity for players. If for some reason we have to cancel the season the BBA Board will provide a refund policy that covers all families.
Please stay safe and take all due caution to help limit your exposure and the possible spread of this virus.
The BBA Board had a meeting and is not yet willing to give up on having a season this year. We are holding out hope that efforts to contain the virus will get it under control and thus allow us to provide the kids with a fun experience over the summer after having to deal with this life changing experience. Time with friends and having fun is probably exactly what they will need.
That being said, we do not have a definitive date or schedule for anything at this point. We have roughly laid out a few scenarios based on possible timelines when the Federal, State and Local government agencies determine the situation safe enough to relax containment procedures to allow sporting activities. Until we have a better handle on that occurring it is next to impossible for us to provide dates, as we do not want to provide false hope or constantly changing target dates on you.
We are committed to trying to make this work and if not, as stated before, we will be making sure all families get covered by a refund. Please stay safe and healthy. We appreciate your patience and look forward to better days ahead.
