News and Announcements
Happy summer! We hope that this finds you doing well and getting outside to enjoy this warm weather. We wanted to touch base as we get closer to the end of July to update you on a few things:1. As of right now, we will NOT be opening Registration in August. Ontario Basketball just released their guidelines on Stage 3 for the OBA and we can participate in training that is non-contact, with own ball, at own basket, either inside or outside. So, that being said, it would be impossible to determine what our programs would look like at this point. We will wait to see how thing progress before opening registration.
See all the details here: https://basketball.on.ca/ontario-basketball-releases-return-play-guidelines-phase-3/2. Having said all that, our program is dependent on being able to use the school gyms, so we will also need to wait to see if Community Use Agreements will be permitted. 3. We will update you with any developments as soon as we know. We wish we knew more, but we are all in a holding pattern at the moment. 4. For now, get the kids outside, put a ball in their hand and get them shooting and dribbling. A lot of development can happen with daily practice.
Hang in there Stingers!!! Fingers and toes are crossed!!
Ontario Basketball has cancelled all remaining Tournaments and Ontario Cup Championships. As a result, all Stingers Basketball, both REP and House League programs, will be cancelled for the 2019-20 season. The final banquet is also cancelled.
We are sad to end the season this way but fully support the measures being taken to keep everyone safe.
Stay tuned for communication from your coaches and executive in the near future about any further details.
Thank you for a great season – get outside in the driveway and shoot some hoops!
Take care and stay safe.
