We met last night with representatives from the TGBL and WW programs and were able to successfully create a gym time schedule through Thanksgiving that was deemed acceptable to everyone involved in that meeting. The gym allocation was done fair and equitably across all programs by providing 1 hour of week night practice time to ALL in-town teams, and 2 hours for ALL travel teams in age appropriate time slots and gyms. There were also some slight adjustments made to the paid weekend gym times to account for changes that happened because of the new week night schedule and to best accommodate the needs of the individual programs.
This group will be reconvening in mid-November and using the same approach to create a schedule for the remainder of the season. This is being done as a 2-step process because post-Thanksgiving through the end of February there is less time available in the gyms to the youth basketball programs (primarily due to Interscholastic sports) and so that schedule is a bit more complex to create and the group wanted to get the gyms re-opened as soon as possible.
We would like to thank all the people that put in their time and effort to bring this to resolution.
Let’s play some basketball!!!
