With KUSD’s decision of suspending sports until January, we have thought long and hard about what our next steps should be. Due to increasing cases of COVID in our area and the holidays quickly approaching, we are making the tough decision to halt BGC basketball operations temporarily. We have made alterations to the season to assure all participants that they will get a full four weeks of practice, and eight weeks of regular season games with two weeks of playoff games like previously scheduled.
Going forward, please follow this schedule:
Remaining practice dates: November 21st, January 9th
Game dates: Saturdays, January 16th- March 20th
COVID Information: Masks are mandatory for all spectators, with social distancing encouraged. At this time there is a limit of TWO spectators per participant.
Practice Statement: Due to COVID-19 restrictions we are not able to reserve practice times with the KUSD grade schools. Therefore we are providing four pre-season Saturday practice sessions at the Boys & Girls Club.
Games: Saturdays at the BGCK. Games will begin January 16th, 2021
Cost: $105. Uniform t-shirt is included. Children with free or reduced lunch: $75 (Includes Membership). MUST have letter from KUSD if child attends non-CEP School.
Active Military Families: Fee waived for one sport per calendar year. You must be a BGC member.
Payment Policy: All outstanding balances must be paid in full to register for the 2020 season.
All registrations must accompany payment in full. If participant cannot pay in full, a deposit of half the fee is required. Remaining balance must be paid by November 2nd, 2020. If balance is not paid, participant will be removed from their registered team and the roster spot will be forfeited. The child will be placed on a wait list until fees are paid.
Divisions: Boys and girls have each of the following divisions.
Jr. Draft - 5th and 6th Grade BOYS Division:
New players and players moving into the 5th and 6th grade division will be placed in the draft. Returning Jr. players wishing to change teams are not allowed to be coach picked, and will be randomly placed on a team (they will not attend the combine).
