MPYBL Basketball Community,
The Manassas Park Youth Basketball League (MPYBL) will unfortunately not conduct our Winter Season 2020-2021 season. As I have waited on making this announcement anticipating a change in the current state of affairs I believe wholeheartedly that it would be in the best interest of all of our participants and their families to cancel the winter season. The MPYBL makes the safety of our families a top priority and with the number of cases in our area steadily rising I believe now is the best time to make this decision.
I have discussed this at length with my colleagues, coaches and past participant families on the importance of running the league and what it would mean for the youth. As I believe that, they need the interactions and outlet after being inactive for most of the year 2020, I do not want to jeopardize their safety nor their futures. It is a tough decision to make, as I will no doubt miss many of you and our interactions every Friday and Saturday this winter. However, we will continuously monitor the situation and try to conduct basketball clinics, classes and other creative ways to deliver our program to the community.
Again, this is not an easy decision for us to make and certainly not one that we make lightly. We understand how much this program means to the community and we plan to come back better next winter. Thank you all for your patience and understanding and please do not hesitate to reach out if you have any questions.
