2020-2021 Registration is now open!UpdatedWednesday October 28, 2020 byBlessing Handley.
Dear GNGYBA Families,
GNGYBA is unable to offer the winter basketball program that we’ve done in the past. We do not have access to school gyms, nor do the teams we play. We have attempted to secure gym time at local facilities, but most gyms are not allowing outside groups at this time and/or are using the space for their own activities. We have successfully scheduled Newbegin Gym at Gray Rec on Sunday day/evenings and Thursday evenings for which we are grateful. We are able to start on Sunday, November 1 so please register as soon as you can.
We have decided to divide our offerings in two phases. Phase 1 will run November and December with skills and drills for each grade level run by coaches. The cost for phase 1 will be $65. Phase 2 will run January and February and will be an additional cost depending on the activities we are able to do. We hope to be able to do more in Phase 2, but it will depend on the status of the pandemic and access to gyms.
For Phase 1, each grade has 9 Sunday skills and drills sessions and grades 5 and above have at least 2 Thursday scrimmages barring no weather cancellations. See YBA Update: plan for games on news feed.
