PYB 2020-2021 Season Update

We will provide updates to the season here on the front page of the website as we prep and move through the season. Please continue to check back for further updates on the upcoming season. 

UPDATE AS OF 01/14/2021:

We continue to be challenged by the COVID environment and ever-changing rules and availability of our school vs other schools. Please note that all of the below is subject to change as a result.  We appreciate you patience as we continue to navigate this season. 

General information: 1) Coaches will be required to wear masks, 2) Players will need to wear masks 3) No parents will be allowed in the gym (for practice) but see sections below for fans allowed at games, 4) kids will need to sign in and get a temperature check when they initially arrive.

1st -3rd grade update:

Starting Saturday, January 9, we are planning for 4 Saturdays of practices and 4 Saturdays of a practice followed by a game, all at Pike Lake.  You should expect that your time slots could be in the morning or early to mid-afternoon. We are in the process of building out the teams, we may need another coach or two, but will reach out as necessary. You will receive an e-mail the week of January 4 about the times to be there on Saturday, January 9, and thereafter a schedule will be provided on the website for all teams.  At Pike Lake, we can allow two fans per player. One team will have fans set up chairs, socially distanced at one baseline, near the wall and staggered, and the other team, the other side.   

4th - 6th grade in-house update:

For 4th - 6th grade boys and girls, we plan to schedule practices to start beginning Sunday January 10, so you can expect your first practice to be that week. We expect two teams for both 4th grade girls and boys. We expect a combined team for 5/6th boys and then also for the girls. You can expect one to two practices a week.  We are still working out a plan for teams to play games, but we don't expect any games to be played until February.  Due to the number of players on teams, there will be 1 fan allowed per player at each game. 

Normal tabs to the website will be updated as we solidify plans for the season.

Travel team info: 

Travel teams this year include: 6B, 6G, 7G, and 8G. These teams will also begin practicing in January. Due to the number of players on teams, there will be 1 fan allowed per player at each game. 

General information: 1) Coaches will be required to wear masks, 2) Players will need to wear masks 3) No parents or fans in the gym for practice, see above for fan #s at games, 4) kids will need to sign in and get a temperature check when they initially arrive.

Thank you everyone for your patience!





Wondering what to bring to practice?

Players will be required to wear masks, including during play. 

What to bring:

Water bottle

Mask

Tennis shoes and preferably shorts. We will be running in doors, so appropriate attire. Warm clothes for when the kids leave the gym after practicing. 

Do not bring a basketball. We will provide balls. The balls must be cleaned after each group. 


Coaches - What you need to know for Practice!

Masks must be warn at all times by coaches and players. 

No parents in the gym for practices.  See fan rules for games at the left! 

Balls will be provided at Pike Lake for practice or out of the fieldhouse if at the High School. Players should not bring their own balls. Balls need to be cleaned and put back in the cage before after each practice. 

All coaches and kids must have their temperature checked when they arrive.

There will be a bin at each gym that includes the following:  1) ball cleaner, 2) rag for ball cleaning, 3) temperature reader

Coaches need to keep track of which kids are at practice. Coaches can have a sign-in or track mentally, depending on your preference. What will be important is to know who was there in case we need to let parents know of an exposure.  

We thank coaches for all they do, in particular this year!
