RCBA Updated Statement COVID 19 March 16th

Published Monday, March 16, 2020

To our valued membership,

It has been a very difficult 72 hours with the quickly changing information surrounding COVID 19 at how it affects the people of Regina. We had made the decision to cancel all of our programs running on Sunday March 15th. This was not an easy decision as we had hoped to afford our 7/8 Boys program the opportunity to play the final medal games. However the health and safety of our players, coaches, officials and fans is our number one priority. We have been given direction from Basketball Saskatchewan, as well as both the Public and Catholic school board that our programs should be suspended. Effective immediately we will have to cancel the remaining two weeks of the following programs:
- Jr Cougars

- Grade 9 Boys

- Grade 10-12 Boys

This will mean that there will be no further practices, games or playoffs for the above mentioned programs.

Unfortunately we will not be able to make these two weeks up. This is not the way we envisioned our programs finishing this season, the health and safety of our membership is our main priority. 

We have not yet made a decision surrounding our Spring League Program. We will be waiting to hear more information so that we can make an informed decision about this program. Once we have more information we will contact the parents directly, as well as post the information on our website and social media channels. 

Spring League Registration is suspended at this time.

Thank you to all our members for your understanding as we navigate through this complex issue.

 

Riley Burns

Executive Director
