Hello DAYBBC Families,
The Deforest Area Youth Boys Basketball Club (DAYBBC) Board of Directors is aware of the many challenges that all families and our community are facing due to this global pandemic. The decisions regarding starting school and co-curricular opportunities can further complicate an already chaotic situation.
We would like to update everyone about the current status of the 2020-2021 DAYBBC season. With the Deforest School Board’s decision to start this upcoming Fall semester learning virtually, our start to the basketball season is postponed. While we typically would have opened registration in August with evaluations following in mid-September, we can not move forward with any decisions until after we know what happens in the next few months.
Please know that we want to give the youth of this amazing community the opportunity to participate in and learn the great game of basketball. We are committed to the future of Deforest Basketball and will examine any and all possibilities to have a Youth Basketball season. We are also committed to making sure that our players and coaches remain safe and healthy while participating in DAYBBC. All decisions that the DAYBBC Board makes going forward will be made with the utmost emphasis on the safety and health of all those involved.
We would appreciate it if you would fill out our survey so that we have information to continue to plan accordingly. If conditions improve and we feel there is potential to safely hold some sort of season along with gym availability, we will then send out a registration link to get an idea of the number of participants for this season.
Thank you for your time and patience and for making every effort to keep your family and our community safe from COVID 19. As this pandemic lingers on, we are all further challenged with highly stressful and emotional situations. Please reach out and support each other when you have the opportunity.
Practice your shooting this off-season and take 10,000 shots by October 1st. Boys entering 4th through 8th grade in the 2020-21 school year are eligible to participate. Click on the document below for more information.
