The status for MYBA basketball this winter is still up in the air.
Current state guidelines designate basketball as a higher risk sport. This means playing basketball games in a traditional way is not allowed. Things change and we are monitoring state guidelines closely.
We also know that we will not have access to Medfield Public Schools gym space for the foreseeable future. The school is doing everything it can to stay in a hybrid model to keep kids in the classroom which includes adhering to state guidelines and safety protocols. The short of it is that MYBA cannot utilize gyms at this time.
For travel basketball, Metrowest has indicated they are moving forward to plan for a shortened season beginning in January if the state guidelines change to allow for basketball games to be played. We are discussing how to approach this news and what it means for our organization.
The current state guidelines allow for cohort based training groups. The cohort training groups must follow certain restrictions such as a maximum of 10 participants and no mixing or intermingling of groups. The cohort concept presents one viable way an in-town season could proceed, assuming gym space can be obtained.
For now, we are going to wait for more information and to see how the fall progresses. We will continue to investigate safe and viable options for basketball programming this winter. We’ll provide another update in the second half of October, if not earlier.
Stay safe and stay healthy!
